  1. According to the Dailey Leon Co Sheriff’s booking report, an illegal alien is locked up for DUI/no driver license waiting for ICE. Don’t worry, Biden will release him.

  2. Congrats to Steve Stewart and Crew for ending 2022 with the wildly popular Morning Briefs section of Tallahassee Reports. Next year Tallahassee Reports is becoming The Newspaper “Of Record” for the Tallahassee/Leon service region of Florida. Finally we will toss TDO.COM into the dumpster fire of all things irrelevant where it has belonged for…oh I dont know…but it seems like the past 10 years at minimum. Enough already good bye and good riddence to TDO.COM. Thanks Steve and Crew.

  3. I guess Kenyadric didn’t get the memo… the Pastors are praying for him. Prayer only helps those left behind; the fear of retribution is what keeps the peace.

  4. Kendadric Smith-a black male. Proof positive our weak on crime policies along with our giant welfare state isn’t working. Smith has a lot going for him. The taxpayer will fund all his legal needs the rest of his life and take care of his kids and baby’s momma, too.

    Remember when a shooting in the Tallahassee area was a shocking event? Shootings are just a number that gets 30 seconds news coverage after the weather and sports segments.This was a premeditated murder which sadly is the new Dailey normal.
