Wow the sheriff just unloaded on the stranded ice fishermen in Ohio

Did anyone just watched CNN live interview of the Ohio Sheriff who just blasted the fishermen who got stranded on that broken ice floating out to the lake? He was not a happy camper. He stated today was a warmer day and the fishermen (bet 100-500 of them) built a bridge to this piece of ice and it cost tens of thousands of dollars for the rescue operation so far and they should have known better than taking this risk ice-fishing today.

 

Usually you hear about the LEO mouthing off about this sort of thing but usually well after the rescue is over, not while it is happening. It was something else to be hearing that live... couldn't quite believe it.

The sheriff has every right to be pissed that the fisermen didn't use their heads. With that said, he's an idiot and an a$%hole for expressing his anger in public, while the rescue was still on. Prayers sent out for the lost fisherman and his familiy.

Fishermen not using common sense, just like the guys who sail out into small craft warnings and then want the Coast Guard out to get them or the folks who think a hurricane evacuation is for others and then want someone to come down the beach to rescue them from their "hurricane party".

 

Nevertheless, first responders try to go get them. Better people than that are hard to imagine.

The one guy that died, actually died of a heart attack. He broke through the ice with his snowmobile while trying to find a way back to land. They got him out alive, but passed on the way to the hospital.

To all that said the sheriff is right, don't go out of the house at all because something anything might happen that the police and fire may have to show up for! I didn't read or see that it was all a bunch of illegal immigrants, I do believe it was tax paying citizens. If you don,t want to do your job and serve the people GET THE )(&^^ of the force! It looked like the fire department had a lot of fun they got to actually use some of the toys they have been training with. Same thing to any fireman that gets up on a high horse and tells the people that pay him, they should be charged to cut there ass out of that car...... Think people there is sometimes somethings that are out of your control. I vote that we outlaw fishing in waders in the surf because them pesky fishermen might get swept out to sea. Don,t laugh somewhere sometime it may be a law. The question is did a hundred people go out on the ice expecting it to float away?

In my opinion the sheriff needs to retire if this gets him so upset.cwm31.gif
