I fully support our state police, and all law enforcement officers and agencies. I just hope they act on any intelligence they have regarding any potential violence, unlike the way they handled Charlottesville.

I’m gritting my teeth, on this one. VSP is in a very tough position on this. I respect and back the Blue, always had, always will. Guys, just do your job, stay safe and I’ll see ya out there in the cold.

Our Virginia State Police are men and women like you and me they have families they have Dad's they have moms they have children they have wives they have husbands they have a job to do let us do our jobs and stay calm peaceful and quiet let us speak our minds let us do the right thing make sure you are a registered voter let your voice be heard not only through voting but let your voice be heard by signing petitions but do not go up against Virginia state police officers they are doing their job just like I do my job just like I have respect for my job I have respect for you I have very much respect for the Virginia state police officers

Be safe out there! I’m praying all of the crazies stay home! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Thank you VSP for being there to maintain peace! God bless each and every one of you and keep you safe from harm! Standing strong with you! Amen!!

Thank you for doing your jobs today and keeping our visiting families safe.

Thank you to the men and women of the VSP for being present to try and keep the peace.

Stay safe VSP!! And Thank You for all you do!!

Have faith VSP. You have protected us for so long. We stand armed and vigilant to protect your 6

Praying for safety for VSP and other LEOs on duty. Thank u for what u do to protect us. ๐Ÿ’™

It's sad that we have to protest to protect our constitution,this governor is a horrible person to go against that and make it to where our local govt have to go against what they are doing.Guns don't kill people ,people kill and there is no way to stop guns being in the hands of people who are out to do the wrong thing sadly.God bless all who are out there for the right reason as we don't need hate in this world,we need unity.

Prayers for all - please watch your backs out there. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

The VSP is to protect the people of Virginia. They should not have any political bias. Respect and honor them for being placed in a very difficult situation. The blame for this rests with the Democrats.

everyone please be safe.....

General Jackson is rolling over in his grave. His state wouldn’t allow this in his time.

Y’all be careful!

Be safe.

Virginia State Police standing army for tyrants

All 50 States are watching this topic very closely here!!!!

They will do whatever our coward of a governor tells them to do

Virginia police are bad people

Follow the orders of Legislative and Executive despotism, or uphold and defend the US Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. The ball is in your court, gang. This maybe THE most important day of your careers.

I’m praying that you all have sense enough to know in your hearts who the bad guys are, and realize that just because the Lord Governor gives you an order, that doesn’t make it the right thing to do. Your oaths are to the people, not the office.

Please follow your oath and arrest the Governor of Virginia for his unconstitutional actions, both in violation of State and Federal Constitutions.

Tomorrow in The Star (1/18): Historic Market Street United Methodist Church (pictured) in downtown Winchester is seeking community input on ways to diversify the use of its building. Ideas include a commercial kitchen and a co-work space, Mickey Powell writes.

Also, Frederick County and state officials react to an invitation from West Virginia for the county to join the Mountain State, Josh Janney writes.

The timing of this is very interesting. Nothing like trying to save face. No sooner than when it was stated in council that there is proof of misconduct with employees she leaves town. So sad that people who gain this kind of power use it poorly! The firefighters now have hope for their future and no longer have to fear speaking out against this oppression.

Best news the fire department could ever ask for!

I'd leave too if I'd have pocketed ~$800k in five years. Retire.

Respect. Great leader and person.

Right on

Update:
As a result of investigation into the shooting incident that occurred in the 200 block of Tiffany Drive yesterday Waynesboro Police have identified and charged two Waynesboro residents.

Antwan Demarcus Tinsley,30, who was wounded in the shooting, has been charged with Felony Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon and Reckless Handling of a Firearm, a misdemeanor. Tinsley was arrested upon being released from the University of Virginia Hospital where he had received treatment for his wound and he is being held at Middle River Regional Jail without bond.

Zerrion Demante Warfield, 18, has been charged with Felony Malicious Wounding and Misdemeanor Reckless Handling of a Firearm. Warfield turned himself in last night at the Waynesboro Police Department and is also being held at Middle River Regional Jail without bond.

The shooting, which began as a domestic disturbance, resulted in more than 20 rounds being exchanged by the two suspects and damage to several vehicles which were hit by the gunfire.

This investigation remains active and additional charges are possible.

So over 20 shots fired at each other and they are both alive?!? Wow! Glad no innocent-bystanders were hurt.

Thank you for arresting these as quickly as possible, now to see that they get justice.

Thank You Waynesboro Police Department WPD for always doing you job to make our town safe!!!๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿ’–

Thank you! Waynesboro Police dept๐Ÿ’™

Soooo.... neither one was a good marksman.... these are the types that will ALWAYS have guns.... regardless what the laws are...but let those of us who know how to hit a target on the first shot be the ones not allowed to possess a firearm due to other laws trying to get passed...๐Ÿคฆ‍โ™€๏ธ Thanks WPD for your quick response in getting these "unskilledchildren" off the street

Another good job WPD

Yep, WPD always catches the bad guy. I love it. Thanks team for another job well done.

Y’all all whack asf ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ don’t even know the whole story! But quick to say “thank you wpd” ๐Ÿคฃ Zerrion will be home soon ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝ‍โ™€๏ธ

Thank you,WPD!

Some of you need to read it again .it say one of them turned himself in so they didn’t go pick him up smh

Heard they even threw the guns at each other but they missed each other that time too!!! Read up on learning to Shoot while in Prison...๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜€

As always I am very grateful for our Waynesboro PD ๐Ÿ’™

There’s so many kids over in this area this could have ended so badly!!

A thankless job done by dedicated, hard working people. Much appreciated by those that understand!

So can they be bailed out and end up back over here and start more trouble? I'm worried about all the kids that live here.

Way to stand there and let them get their self attested. Wpd got a freebie this time. They just sat by the phone and ringy dingy . Oh I got a gunshot wound . Ok be right there. Who shot you? I fell.... Hey Sarge we got a guy turned himself in he says he shot a man ...... Case closed. .....

Great job WPD

Good job WPD!!

But they are also the ones that will get bond to

It is hard to understand why people are so dumb.

Thanks ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Sad got to use guns

The guy that turned himself in deserves the thanks, he shot the other guy, & turned himself in, essentially putting both person's involved, into custody himself

Throw hands, not lead

Put them under the jail !

I wanted to think the police department for responding to my request for increased patrols. Since the 711 closed across the street from my home, the drug dealers decided to move onto my stoop. My concern was they would pop the lock on my Olde Barbershop and move in for the heat. I believe the increase of cruisers and perhaps foot patrol have dissuaded them from setting up a more permanent shop. Thank you Officers.

Thanks Chief and all the officers. Your efforts of going above and beyond for our community is paying off. Here is to continuing to bridge the gap!

Thanks to my Son and all of the other police personnel in this district.

711 in Hedgesville was robbed early this morning everyone is saying due to the county boy blocking it off

so sorry, thank, not think

***BREAKING NEWS UPDATE***
PACHUTA - Successful ending after Heroic rescue efforts made by State Trooper Anthony Chancelor, Clarke County Deputy Austin Touchstone, and Clarke County Deputy Brad McNeece.

CCHT would like to commend these guys for not hesitating when it came to this life-saving, high-water rescue situation.

Witnesses who called 911 for help stated the vehicle was overturned and the driver was still inside and yelling for help as the waters continued to rise into the vehicle.

Once Troopers and Deputies arrived on scene it was confirmed the driver was indeed trapped inside, that's when the three jumped into action through the flood water.

State Trooper Anthony Chancelor with the Mississippi Highway Patrol said on scene Wednesday morning, "We just couldn't sit back and wait, the car was on it's side, the water was steadily rising and we didn't know how long the car would remain stable before overturning".

Chancelor, McNeece and Touchstone all went into the blinding water not knowing quiet what to expect below. "We didn't know if their was a ditch or a low spots, so we all just went in guiding each other in case one of us fell". Chancelor said.

The driver who was from said to be from Alabama suffered minor injuries during the accident, however no medical attention was needed. Without a doubt the situation could have been much worse had the vehicle actually rolled onto its roof in the rising water.

Pachuta, Enterprise Fire Departments and other local first responders also responded to and assisted with the accident scene.

I am pretty sure he just left little Caesars in Harrisonburg ๐Ÿค”

People really should watch what they comment on public post why comment disrespectful things this is someone’s son, husband , uncle , brother the point is mind your own business he is human and made mistakes just as anybody else does .. Sam wherever you are be safe and know so many people love you man .

Lmao let the man go he literally didn’t show up for court oh well lmao people do it all the time why pick and poke at just some of them ๐Ÿ˜’

Hope they find him

Yeah we should hunt down the guy who was driving on a suspension instead of the sex traffickers and heroin dealers. Good use of the public forum of social media. Priorities people.

I get wanting to get his pic out there because he’s wanted but why do we need to know everything else about him? Typical police abusing their power. Just share his pic and be done๐Ÿ™„

I don’t see what so many people are outraged by this post. It’s the modern day equivalent to wanted posters being hung in post offices.

Hope they don't find him lol

If this is the news you post that's sad.

Is he considered armed and dangerous? Is there a reward?

Great Officer and a awesome asset to not only the Mpd but to our community as well! PFC Jones you get 5 ๐Ÿ’ซ

Thank you Officer Jones for the humongous construction set you gave our son, pictured in the first photo, this Christmas season. He talks frequently of your kind gesture. Every time we pass the “mall area” he mentions of when you pulled over my parents, his grandparents, and gave him his gift. My family appreciates very much what you did and will always be remembered. God bless you and your family! Mike Everhart

I'm not sure whom it was, but an officer gave my dramatic lil one a stuffed animal on our way back to the finish line during the chocolate run last year. I'm so thankful for our officers in so many ways. ♥๏ธ Y'all rock.

You are definetely a nice person with a good heart. The smiles on the children's faces are worth all you do for them. Thanks for being a good person and a wonderful police officer.

The two little ones are mine! It was very sweet of him. He scared me, but it was a super nice thing to do. My kids we excited!
