Sandusky officer shot, killed

(UPDATED WITH AUDIO CLIPS) Sandusky police Officer Andrew "Andy' Dunn died early Saturday morning after being gunned down while patrolling the streets of Sandusky.

Sandusky police Officer Andrew “Andy” Dunn died early Saturday morning after being gunned down while patrolling the streets of Sandusky.

The grisly scene played out shortly after 3 a.m. as shouts of "Shots fired!" and "Officer down!" rang out from the police scanner and officers rushed to the scene.

Dunn had approached Kevin D. Randleman, 50, 900 block W. Adams St., as Randleman rode down Tyler Street on a bicycle.

The two exchanged gunfire, with Dunn sustaining multiple gunshot wounds and Randleman sustaining at least one gunshot wound.

Firefighters rushed Dunn to Firelands Regional Medical Center's emergency room, where doctors pronounced him dead at 4:33 a.m.

Dunn, 30, is the first Sandusky police officer to die in the line of duty in more than a century and the first ever killed by gunfire.

 

Traffic stop

The Erie County Sheriff’s office is investigating the incident with the help of the state Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation.

So far they’ve determined that Dunn, while patrolling the area of Tyler Street and Hayes Avenue, spotted Randleman on a bicycle. Dunn asked dispatchers to check for warrants on Randleman, but dispatchers didn't find any.

Dunn then tried to stop Randleman. Radio traffic indicates Randleman refused to stop.

“This was self-initiated activity by Officer Dunn, doing what he did every day in his job as a police officer,” Erie County Sheriff’s Capt. Paul Sigsworth said about the stop.

Once Randleman did stop, Dunn got out of his patrol car. It’s not clear what happened after that, but another Sandusky officer arrived just after shots were fired, Sigsworth said. Investigators are trying to determine who fired first.

“Shots fired! Shots fired! Shots fired!” the second officer yelled into his radio. He then reported that an officer had been downed with gunshot wounds to the chest.

Dunn wore a bulletproof vest, a standard protocol for officers on patrol, noted interim Sandusky police Chief Jim Lang. Sigsworth declined to specify the locations of Dunn’s wounds or at what range shots were fired. The Lucas County coroner’s office will perform an autopsy as soon as Monday.

 

Investigation continues

Collection of evidence and analysis of the crime scene lasted several hours Saturday.

The shooting took place between the hospital’s Professional Center I and Professional Center II. Randleman’s bike still lay on the sidewalk late Saturday morning. Numbered tags marked the spots where bullet casings and a handgun fell to the ground nearby. Six bullet holes dented the windowpanes of Professional Center II.

Police barricaded the entire block between Hayes Avenue and Prospect Street as officers combed the area for clues.

One thing’s clear: Both Dunn’s firearm and the other handgun were fired, and no one else fired any shots, Sigsworth said.

Nearby residents said gunfire startled them awake. They looked outside as more than a dozen cars from several law enforcement agencies swarmed the scene.

Ron Lunsford, who has lived in his Prospect Street home for 40 years, said he heard at least five gunshots.

“I heard pop pop pop pop pop,” he said. “It sounded like a high-powered gun. It didn’t sound like a little .22.”

Polk Street resident Jason Scott said he and his neighbor heard more like 10 shots. Scott called his dogs, grabbed his gun and went out to his backyard, which overlooks the crime scene.

He didn’t realize at the time that a police officer had been shot, but he heard someone shouting that “Kevin” had done it. He overheard other officers, too.

“I heard them talking to the cop, telling him he was going to be OK and everything,” Scott said. “But evidently he wasn’t.”

This is sad but it goes to show you how bad things are and its going to get worse.

Just Thinkin

Why even treat the scum bag ? let alone fly IT to Toledo !! IT should have laid thier till the waste of life expired as a taxper I demand no trial just SWIFT justice by law enforcement !!!!!!

Be_informed

 Why fly that piece of trash anywhere....Just leave him in the street.. like the piece of trash he is

Erie Countian

Oh no! This is terrible. I am extremely saddened by this, and upset to see how my hometown is deteriorating right before my eyes. Sandusky used to be such a nice place, but it is being destroyed by low lifes and criminals. Prayers to the officer's family and to SPD.

Be_informed

 Sorry must slow down...take a breath... count to 5000.......Nope didn't help..he is still scum

MrSandusky

Mr. Westerhold and the rest of his cop hating buddies at the Register will milk this and the funeral for all the extra circulation that they can, just watch.

I hope that Officer Dunn's family is not forgotten in this, I think we all need to make sure they get nothing but the best.

starryeyes83

Very sad.
Lemme guess, the s.o.b was on crack and looking for a fix, right? If this doesn't wake up the city officials and tell them that your town has turned into a cesspool like Detroit- nothing will.

rbenn

And just think the taxpayers payed for this scums helecopter ride and medical treatment. I personally hope he dies!

Bedelia Buckeye

 Andy was a hero a died as a hero. Being a cop was one of the most important things to him. A great dad to the most adorable sons I've ever seen, and a great husband to my cousin. He will be missed dearly in this family. 

Cityslicker

 It would be in the SR's best interest not to try and interview the Officers dad.

SanMommy2

I heard about this at about 3:40 this morning, and have talked about this story all morning. Why are you just now reporting this SR?? You report everything else on a timely manner.

My prayers go out to the Dunn Family, as well as the SPD. Sandusky this has got to stop. I pray this a wake up call for the folks who decide to be out at 3am for no reason. You aren't at work, the bars are closed. GO TO BED. It's just a sad day in Sandusky that our people have resulted in such embarrassing, no moral behavior. To take someone's life over something that couldn't possibly be worth it.

Again my prayers to the Dunn family, SPD, hospital staff, SFD, and everyone involved, also to the suspected gunman. Yes I'm praying for you because whether you die I'm asking God to have mercy on your soul, and if you live that you will be remorseful, repent, and that whatever happens to you in the courtroom, or prison that God be with you!

streak

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

E40below

this is where i get pissed because of these druggies taking over our city and we gotta pay taxes not only to keep em locked up, but to TREAT them after they KILL an officer. i agree that they shouldve just let the scum rot where they lay.

Bada Bing

Just Thinkin

Bet you he was a fine young  down trodded young man who just needs love and understanding LOL HANG HIM and NOW ! Bet this gets removed cause well ya'll know why Hey JUDGES how many times did he come before you and what is your respones ?????????????????

beepx22

 i expect there will be a zero tolerence now in sandusky.... Good.  The shame is that a Good Cop had to die for this to happen.  Andy Dunn was a Good Cop, and and Good Person.  He will be missed.

yourallpetty

called out

I hope this B#stard dies! RIP OFFICER DUNN! You were a good man, good friend, great officer and a wonderful father and husband

Mime Bloggling

 Prayers to Officers Dunn' s family. No greater sacrifice....

Willie T.

My prayers and my heart go out to this young man's family and friends.  Sandusky is my former home town, and it saddens me to see what Sandusky is becoming.  This is not the hope and change that I can believe in, just more of the same, and on steroids, at that. 

Slm200807

Prayers to the family & friends of Mr. Andy Dunn gone but not forgotten 

00SEVEN

This is unacceptable. It's time we take the city back once and for all. I know the Ragister will delete this post since they have issues with posting public information. Please look closely at the reports by Randleman and take heed to the Judge O'Brian how he suspends jail times for repeat offences. The first issue at hand will be to have O'Brian removed from his duties since he chooses to have a soft heart even for this worthless piece of flesh that killed Officer Dunn. Read for yourself how O'Brian has let him off time and time again with minimum penalties. The whole family that's posted are worthless.

I THINK IT'S TIME TO HAVE O'BRIAN REMOVED FROM HIS DUTIES SINCE THE POLICE BRING THESE LOW LIFES TO JUSTICE ONLY TO GET A SLAP ON THE WRIST, AND NOW AN OFFICER IS KILLED BECAUSE OF HIS BLEEDING HEART.

RIP Andrew!!

Jonester714

And Baxter for that matter. I am not claimng to know what happened at his murder trial back in 1990 or whenever it happened but from what I have heard, it obviously should have been an open and shut casefor murder and this man should be in prison today. However, our prosecutor must have been sitting in the bar instead of doing his job as he was aquitted. What a shame. Nice job Mr. prosecutor!

spensmom

This is so sad. I grew up with him. He was such a nice guy and wanted nothing more than to be a police officer. He passed away doing what he loved. My prayers go out to his family and he will be a wonderful guardian angel for his little boys. He earned his wings long ago.

I send my condolences to Andrew's wife and children and to his parents.  My heart goes out to you !!

 

Taxpayer

May God be with the family and loved ones of this officer who gave up his life in protecting the city.  What is going on with our great society?  I do NOT even remember when a SPD officer was KILLED in the line of duty in a gun battle.  We need to WAIT and see what the investigation produces.  No one knows what happened and the people and press are not privy to anything until the investigation is completed.  All I do know is Sandusky now joins many cities where they have lost one of their honorable own and the entire city, county and state mourn a great LE officer.  The FBI Uniform Crime Report will show "Law officers killed" have suddenly SPIKED across this nation.  Can anyone speculate why?  I also want to know the causal factors as to what and how this could happen.  So how do we stop this behavior?  Already there is immature and usual BLAME going on in the blogs.  BLAME right now is of NO help to anyone.  NONE!   NONE of us even know what happened.  Why don't you people who love to BLAME get off your self-serving soapbox and help take care of the family of this officer FIRST?  Now a family is without a father, husband and son.  The entire SPD and LE community are in total disbelief and bereavement.  It that too much to ask?  This involves a family where LE service has been inherent.  I know the father of this great officer who is also a great SPD officer.  The entire LE community is in total grief and sorrow.  "Dear Lord, a warrior comes directly to You.  Please comfort him, his entire family and all his friends.  Andy was an excellent police officer and served with exceptional performance, dignity and integrity.  He and his father are the examples of the great officers who decided to be protectors and serve as members of the Sandusky Police Department."

Taxpayer, What a change for you.  This fine policeman was one of the union members you have been trashing for the past few weeks.  Now do you still think they don't earn their pay and benefits?

My sympathies to the Dunn family. 

PTBarnumWouldBeProud

tk...I'm not here to defend "taxpayer," but this is hardly the time to go in that direction.

What a loss, God bless and R.I.P. officer Dunn. I know two cops in Cleveland, they get so frustrated, they put their lives on the line every day, arresting sh^t bags, then after the justice system takes over they arrest the same people over and over because the offender only gets a wrist slap. Yes I agree we need judges who will punish these sh^t bags, not judges who only care about their re election agendas. Its a revolving door with these criminals, as they know there no real deterents from doing crime. This peice of sh^t should not have even been on our streets. The cops get caught in the middle, too much enforcement and they are considered over agressive and profiling, too little and the community bitches about that too. The justice system fails, then some law maker makes more laws, when the courts dont uphold the ones we already have. RIP.

tk : what a sh6t comment you and others make to drag your union crap into this, someone just lost their life serving and protecting.

MINE

This upsets me to no end!    Now for all of the police haters that have been blogging for months with the Nuesse saga....YOU GO DO THEIR JOB!   My sincere condolences go out to the family and all other police officers!   I want to thank each and EVERY one of you for going out there and risking your life every single day as I sleep to make sure I am safe especially in THIS town anymore!   It saddens me to see this town going to he!! with this kind of thing goin on and people here are worried about leash laws and killing feral cats??!!   Time to take our town back and Help our officers stay safe instead of working against them!   I am truly OUTRAGED!   GOD bless all involved!   Thank you office Dunn for puting your life out there for us!    So very sorry!    They have to actually work to save this Randleman man now?  That in itself has got to be hard!

eriemom

Taxpayer: I am so angry right now that I should not be writing this. You are a hypocrite sir. This young man died serving my community. His family will survive because his union will make sure that they get his pension and any unused vacation or personal days banked. You prey only when public servents die, what about the rest of the time. You rant about their benefits and you cry about the taxes you must pay for them. What is wrong with you?

If not now? When? This IS the difference between public and private sectors. Public sector employees die. They do take all the crap handed out, and Andy was no different.

Amen to your comment TK! You are 100% correct. "Taxpayer" has been bashing those "Lazy Overpaid Union Police Officers" how long now? Then he goes and tries to post something like that! Make up your mind Taxpayer!

RIP officer Dunn, and thank you for serving and protecting. When are we going to send a message to the judges that we wont stand for minimal punishments, we need to vote these fairy land judges the hell out, get ones who will max sentences more often. This thug should have already been sitting in a cell. Hard time/hard labor/max sentence/more death penalty...theres a start .

You union prophets on here make me sick, have some respect for the dead, people can disagree on that issue, but a fine leo just lost his life!

rbenn

Show some respect, this is not the time for political soapbox, 2 little kids lost a dad  and a woman lost her husband.  PLEASE!

OMGreally

You know my first thought was to make a crack about Taxpayer's "change of heart", but I took a moment to think before commenting that now isn't the time and a young man lost his life.  While I don't agree with alot of Taxpayers comments, at least he took the high road and didnt bring his politics into this forum and actually was thinking of the family of this guy.  Then I have to read other ppl dogging on him for taking the high road.  Now is not the time for bashing Taxpayer for his opinions, but for mourning a young man that lost his life serving the city of Sandusky.  Trust me, there will be plenty of time in the future to argue with Taxpayer about his beliefs, but this isnt it.  God bless Adam Dunn and his family and friends.

Hey, 00Seven.  Posting Kevin Randleman's record is NOT accurate.  It ONLY goes back to 1991.  Kevin J. Randleman is ANOTHER example of judicial justice exactly like Spencer Blatnik and his "18TH" O.M.V.I. charge.  Here is a tip for the people.  My guess is Spencer has been charged over THIRTY times for drunk driving.  Just ask ANY 20-year+ LE veteran.  Randleman is another who has been arrested so many times, most of his arrests have dropped off his record.  He also has a juvenile record none of you will see.  Once again, all area LE officers are familiar with or arrested Randleman.  Many officers have started their careers and retired out trying to put Randleman away.  Randleman is notorious with Perkins Police and SPD.  He is another example of accepted liberal justice where there is a revolving door over and over.  Do ANY of you finally realize this yet?  Are you blind?  Both Blatnik and Randleman are "frequent flyers" with LE.  LE is helpless and continues to arrest these fine pillars of liberal society over and over only to see them back out on the streets.  LE is doing their job.  So what will it take to correct this behavior?  Just keep giving them "another chance" at society?  So can you really justify the BLAME of judges?  You might want to look into the mirror as to why this is acceptable.  Now Randlemam will receive FREE taxpayer PAID health care, a FREE trip by medical twin turbine helicopter to Toledo, a FREE ride back, FREE room and board at the jail, the usual FREE taxpayer PAID public defender and he WILL sue SPD and the taxpayers of the city for his injuries and damages if he lives.  Once again, the SUSPECT has it made with taxpayers PAYING for everything.  I see this as the ultimate welfare.  I personally wish this entire incident was reversed and the SUSPECT was KILLED with Andy wounded.  Just observing Randleman riding his bicycle at 0300 is enough "reasonable suspicion" to question him in a non-custodial stop.  All Andy wanted to do was be a good cop exactly like his father.  I am so sorry Matt.  I am so sorry for your loss, the loss to your family and all your friends.  You have no idea how many people are in mourning.  I pray the PEOPLE will come together and support you and your family and NEVER forget Andy.

Tommy, if the Register hasn't already pulled your plug forever, why don't you be a man, and post your actual name.  No, I have no interest in finding you.  Truth be told, you're not worth a bullet...or at least not worth one of mine.

I just want to know your name so that I can have a good laugh when KARMA comes a-calling for you.  Funny that you should even mention karma.  By your own words, you've doomed yourself to some sort of extremely unpleasant ending.  I only hope it won't be quick.

Horrible story!! Our prayers go out to Officer Dunn's family and friends.

Officer Andrew Dunn has made the ultimate sacrifice.  Any comment in this thread that fails to convey a deep sense of loss and gratitude for that sacrifice is inappropriate.

To the family, friends, and dedicated associates of Officer Andrew Dunn I can only  ask that you please accept my gratitude for Officer Dunn's service and my deepest sorrow and sympathy for your loss.

I worked with Officer Dunn for several years at the Police Department and I knew him well.  He was a dedicated Police Officer and all he wanted to be was a good husband, father and a cop and now it's gone. My prayers go out to his wife, children, family and his fellow brother Officers at the Sandusky Police Department.

Is this the same Kevin Randleman that was shot in the leg during all those shootings in the city a few months ago?  The Sandusky Register needs to be more specific with age, DOB and middle initial. I see where other persons that share the same name are being attacked by the readers.

This is a very sad day. Andy Dunn was a good person. I pray for his family and SPD.  I agree that the judges who keep letting these people off should be investigated by the state- or at least not re-elected!!

Unreal, I can't agree.  For my part, I'll try to ignore the cop-hating moron from this point on, but people do have strong opinions and feelings about this tragedy, and should be able to share them.

I should have written this first:  RIP Officer Dunn, and peace to those you leave behind.

Apologies for letting a hater get to me.

People ....... because of drugs, because criminals are no longer afraid to be criminals, because we have laws that can not or are not enforced ....... a father, husband, son, brother, friend & police officer has been killed ..... his life was taken!!! A couple years ago, a phone call was made to the Sandusky police department by the family of a person who stole a loaded gun and was walking with a destination in mind. The person who stole the gun was a convicted felon. This person was picked up, the gun was found on their person and taken away from them and they were then turned lose. Not one day of jail time was spent for a convicted felon carrying a concealed, loaded stolen gun. It never made the papers. There were no charges. What I'm telling everyone has nothing to do with Officer Dunn or Randelman but it happened IN Sandusky ....... Something is wrong. Something is seriously wrong. Our laws need a makeover. My sincerest condolences go out to Officer Dunn's family. I am so very sorry for your lose.

brutus smith

 I see the usual haters don't want to talk about things now that this young man paid the ultimate price. A lot of you public worker haters are complicit in this as far as I'm concerned. What do you think all of your hate and disrespect produce? Keep on justifing your hate.

THIS IS "NOT" KEVIN RANDLEMAN THE UFC FIGHTER!  Kevin lives in Vegas and was born in 1970.  I also don't appreciate the records of the "COP KILLER" and "THE UFC FIGHTER" being under the same public records.  Again, this is NOT Kevin the UFC Fighter!

God bless Officer Dunn and his family left behind.

 

I hope Randleman enjoys dying at Lucasville, if he lasts that long.

stormy

Brutus, you make a valid point.  I've watched the debate over the rights of public employees from the sidelines.  I've seen our cops, firefighters and other dedicated public servants maligned for weeks.  Has it been so long since 9/11 that we've FORGOTTEN the risks taken and the sacrifices made by these brave souls?  Is it possible that some have come to see them as freeloaders?  Good Lord Almighty, what are we coming to?

ThyeALLseyinEYE

RIP officer DUNN you are a hero trying to clean up the streets of sandusky, thank you for your service. And to the family and friends i am very deeply sorry for your loss. And to the children of sandusky you should try to grow up and be like officer Dunn not a rapper, basketball or football player, theres a decreasing number of MEN like Officer Dunn and that is why our community and counrty is going downhill. Officer Dunn again Thank You For Your Service to our Community

Think9

The officer had a gun and still lost his life.  Shows me 2 things.  More practice with the 45 Judge and 20 gauge, and most importantly, when that window makes a sound and the floorboards start to crack, the first words out of any mouth should not be mine to the intruder... "who is it", but a question from the awaken family inside after the smoke, "who WAS it".

From now on, no questions, plan your action ahead of time with your family, and when that one single second moment you have to defend yourself comes, as they say "Just Do It!'

Don't matter your race, it's time to take this country back.

mankind716

Can we please not talk politics on this page? A young Police Officer made the ultimate sacrifice for his City, I believe that and helping his family through this tragedy should be our focal point.

This may not be popular, but lets remember that Mr. Randleman had family too I assume. I'm not trying to glorify or atone for what he has done but those that love him should be taken into consideration as well. He deserves to be swiftly punished but we cannot ostricize his family, they are also going through a tough time.

arcman033

As if all of the other shootings aren't enough! This should be the wake up call that everyone needs.  Numerous shootings in sandusky lately, officer killed now......whats next?  Exercise your 2nd amendment rights as citizens, buy a gun and get your concealed carry permits!  All of these people getting robbed have no carry permits, I bet when we get a few low lifes that get shot and killed in self defense things will start to change!!  All i have to say is my guns are loaded and i will protect myself and my family and i pray that no one ever has the balls to try to rob me, break into my home or hurt my family because when and if that day comes I will be armed!!!

I know blatnik he is a cousin,They need to send his a.. to prison he has more DUI in other states.

HaRley44

First of all, this is really sad above anything a 30 year old young man with 2 children and a wife is dead. Its not about race its about an officer getting shot. May I point out, by a KNOWN criminal who has already shot someone in their past. Now, if your a known criminal and your out riding your bike at 3am on a friday night chances are your up to no good. Again, A KNOWN criminal. Why shouldnt Officer Dunn had stopped and asked what hes up to? Your not going to visit Grandma at 3am with a criminal history. Heres something interesting, I am white and when I lost my car and had to walk from Hy Myler to Jackson Street at 1 am I have been stopped and asked what was up and in a few cases given a ride. So they dont only ask black people what there doing running the streets in the middle of the night If your not doing anything wrong its not a big deal to say im walking from work or a friends house. There was obviously some sort of criminal activity on Randlemans part or else he wouldnt have started shooting. And he wouldnt have had a gun on him at 3 in the morning especially with his criminal history you know he wasnt licensed. And maybe Andy didnt call it in because he figured he was just seeing what this guy was doing at 3am. Maybe the guy was swerving down tyler street like he may be drunk. Who knows but its disrespectful to this mans family and memory to imply this was racially motivated or in anyway his fault. Randleman obviously had something to hide or something that would put him in jail for a really long time. Records dont lie. Whether your black or white. And I hope with all my heart that Officer Dunn's family is not reading these sometimes insensitive posts.

From a copper on the north side of the border, RIP Officer Dunn.  You, your family, friends and coworkers will be in my prayers.  There has been far too many of us killed in the line of duty on both sides of the border.  It's a trend that is indeed troubling not only for us on the frontline but for the citizens that we protect as this is an attack on YOUR safety as well.

As for our critics, we took this career path because we believe that every law abiding citizen should be able to live their lives in peace without having to worry about becoming a victim.  We know there are inherient risks but we accept those risks and I certainly don't think that being compensated fairly for doing so is asking too much.

Yes there are other careers that are more dangerous, i.e. coal miner, but this one and that of a soldier in combat are the only ones where you not only witness the most unimaginable horrors of life on a daily basis but risk being murdered, maimed or injured by a "client" because of what you represent or for just for doing your job.

I would dare say that those who spew the usual rhetoric would curl up in the fetal position, suck their thumbs and cry out for their mommy if they were ever put in the situations that we face each and every day of our career, as they are cowardly and talk is cheap.

Taxed Enough Already

 Quite frankly I don't care what happens to Randleman. I don't even care about his family as they must know what a piece of human excrement he is by now.   My ONLY concern is for the family of Officer Dunn.  I know the SR will remove this post...I don't care about that either.

NOW THAT I'VE SEEN THE PIC OF THE SHOOTER IT'S SAD TO SAY I KNEW OF THIS PERSON AND IT MAKES ME SICK! AND AS FOR THE DUNN FAMILY MY HEART AND PRAYERS REACH OUT TO YOU. THE RACIAL THING NEEDS TO STOP. WHAT IF IT WAS YOU? I HAVE NO RESPECT FOR A COP KILLER! FOR ALL OF YOU PEOPLE THAT COMPLAIN ABOUT SANDUSKY GOING TO HELL WELL STAND UP AND DO SOMETHING. SHOOTING ANOTHER HUMAN BEING IS NOT GOING TO GET YOU ANY WHERE AND SURE IS NOT THE ANSWER. AND THE JUDGES OF SANDUSKY NEED TO PUT THERE FOOT DOWN INSTEAD OF SLAPPING THESE CRIMINALS ON THE WRIST! I DONT CARE FOR ANYONE ELSE'S NASTY COMMENTS ALL ADULTS ON HERE I HOPE. DONT YOU PEOPLE BELIVE IN PUTTING NEIGHBORHOOD WATCHES TOGETHER OR IS THAT TO MUCH TO ASK? FOR GOD SAKES HALF OF YOU PEOPLE ARE RAISING YOUR KIDS UP IN THIS TOWN AS WELL. AND MAYBE WHAT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE TO SOME OF YOU IT WILL MAKE SENSE TO OTHERS!! I'M DISCUSTED WITH PEOPLE SHOOTING ONE ANOTHER AND NOBODY IS DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT! BETTER YET SEND ALL THE WANNA BE THUG SHOOTERS TO IRAQ THEN LETS SEE HOW TUFF THEY REALLY ARE!

 

Typical

My heart goes out to his wife and family....these two little boys will never grow up with a father, because this low life took their daddy from them.

Rumor is Randelman was going to go and kill someone, the police got a tip...and in the end a police officer was killed.

RIP Officer Dunn

 Go to END OF WATCH Officer Down page... It's on FB too.... very sad, and I pray swift justice will prevail. To all the other law enforcement personnel, please know we appreciate your service, and pray that the city can heal in due time... WE need to have order in our cities, "just law enforcement" and unity with the police at all times... No matter what has happen in the past, a community must trust our officials to make wise choices, and be respected.  Such a sad day, and today the Jewish Sabbath, also it is the holiday of PURIM, which is from the Book of Esther, she stood up for justice, and saved her people...  Be "just" in all your ways, and you'll know peace.

40 Hour Worker

Why was this piece of scum even allowed to walk the streets?  An extensive criminal history and yet he's out on the streets and a police officer is now dead because of this s.o.b.

I hope this is a wake-up call for this city to start taking out the trash.  I've lived in Sandusky all my life.  I went to school with Matt Dunn.  It makes me sick to see what this city has become, how this element has been allowed to turn this city into the dump on the lake.  It's a shame...an absolute shame.  I witness it in my own neighborhood how these people commit the same crimes over and over and over and nothing happens to them.  They get a slap on the wrist and are back out on the street doing it all over again.  Something needs to change.  These repeat offenders need to be dealt with more severely regardless of whether it's a petty crime or something of this caliber.

My condolences to Officer Dunn's family.

in response to advocate 4 animals .. it pains me to see what i refer to as a decline in the quality of living safely in the City of Sandusky Ohio .. i'm from Cincinnati but have lived here 15 years and consider Sandusky home .. the death of officer Dunn prompts me to believe that its time for the city to take back the streets .. his death should be a solemn reminder that too many wrong individuals are in possession of illegal firearms .. i propose random shakedowns of EVERYONE in suspicious places & suspicious times .. this city used to be one of the safest in the U.S. .. now its becoming Dodge City .. my aching heart and prayers go out to the Dunn family .. THIS MUST CHANGE !!!!

I am so tired of people claiming "their"people have been killed. No your people got themselves killed by their actions. And instead of trying to rise up against sterotypes and profiling you still continue to be ignorant by trying to blame everyone else for your races problems. There are white people that do the same stuff but as soon as a black man who CLEARLY was guilty everyone claims he was targeted? No ignorance comes in all races and laziness is in the words of people trying to pull the race card when someone was obviously wrong. Jeez, its 2011 and a black man is running the country...the race card isnt cutting it anymore..Dude was guilty!! He shot an officer multiple times and your sticking up for him cuz of your people? Unbelievable P.S learn how to spell and articulate your words thats a push in the right direction..not everyone speaks thug

No ignorance comes in all races and laziness is in the words of people trying to pull the race card when someone was obviously wrong. Jeez, its 2011 and a black man is running the country...the race card isnt cutting it anymore..Dude was guilty!! He shot an officer multiple times and your sticking up for him cuz of your people? Unbelievable P.S learn how to spell and articulate your words thats a push in the right direction..not everyone speaks thug

A mutt like you? So your even predjudiced against your own people Im pretty sure he knows how to spell. You make yourself sound ignorant with your ebonics. Learn how to articulate a conversation there is no way you have a job speaking like that. Noone takes you seriously and your views go unnoticed because of that. Again, furthering the stereotype...your decision...but I guess thats white peoples fault to

RIP Officer Dunn. Unfortunately, I had to meet you on 2 separate occasions bc of "bad choices made by people in my life.  However, you had enough sense to trust in me as a parent and allow me to take care of things at home and prevent my child from gettting a record.  I will forever be grateful to you for your service to this community, but most importantly my child.  My child has grown into a man and has led a productive, law-abiding life.  Thank you.

History has shown us that when tragedy strikes (9-1-1, Katrina) the people of our country stand up and take care of each other and show pride in our country. I hope that the people of Sandusky take this as opportunity to recognize the real issues in our community and start being part of the solution and stop being part of the problem. 

Arguing and commenting on Facebook and the Register's website is counterproductive.  Go out and meet your neighbors.  When you see children out after the streetlights come on, suggest to them to get home.  Volunteer in our schools or for other social service agencies (Boys and Girls Club, Big Brother Big Sister, Nehemiah Center.)  be part of the pro-active change.  the time for change is now.  let's take back our city and take pride in all the really great things that do exist here, instead of focusing on all the bad.  (And call the Register when the you see good things happening.  It would be awesome if they would be more interested in marketing a great place to live and raise families then selling newspapers.)

 

OMGWOW

Dunn probably wouldn't have bothered a white man who was just riding a bike and minding his own business.

It seems like he approached Kevin Randleman just because.  There is no time limit on when people can ride their bicycles.
