No funny stuff...

Not until Dontae Morris is off the streets. Sorry. It's not about a knee-jerk thirst for "hang 'em high" revenge, it's about removing a threat to public safety. Once he's in custody, I trust the judicial system and those who work within it to take their due course, ensuring that justice is served.

Here's a mugshot of Dontae Rashawn Morris. He's 5'9", between 145 and 160 lbs, with tattoos on his arms and face.
If you have seen this man, call Tampa police with your information at (813) 231-6130. He's obviously armed, dangerous and desperate. Be alert, be aware of your surroundings. Don't leave doors to your home, car, or place of business unlocked.
