Thumbs up

This guy's plan to get his electric and cable TV turned back on worked out real well for him didn't it! Thankfully the firefighters got out OK. Kudos to those cops armed with those "evil high capacity magazine assault weapons."

Everything worked out for the best.

My favorite part is: The perp is signal 48!

This will just be more "ammo" for the anti-gun folks to use to continue to erode our rights, just watch....

None, unless there was traffic on the FD TGID's. Gwinnett PD is encrypted.

Here are the relevant audio links:

3:37 PM to 4:08 PM
(Incident beings at around 18:45 minute mark)
http://apro.radioreference.com/20130...-215289-79.mp3

4:07 PM to 4:37 PM
http://apro.radioreference.com/20130...7-82916-79.mp3

5:07 PM to 5:37 PM
http://apro.radioreference.com/20130...-757896-79.mp3

5:37 PM to 6:07 PM
http://apro.radioreference.com/20130...7-50267-79.mp3

Keep in mind that the feed provider suffered a power outage during the incident, so there might be some gaps in coverage and incomplete audio.

However, the first two archives do have the response, initial contact with the hostage taker, and the initial set of demands from the hostage taker which was relayed by the firefighters on scene. I haven't listened to the rest to see what other comms were related to the incident.

Good to hear these guys calm and collected - both the firefighters and the dispatcher. Everyone involved handled this really professionally from what I've heard so far.

This is good and bad. ...Good, because RR.com gets the credit for the excellent service, but bad, because it will also draw attention to radio rebroadcasting of public safety communications, making encryption more desired among more departments.

GCFD was previously encrypted as is just about every other TG on the network when it replaced their old Smartnet II system in 2008.

The fire TG's were unencrypted for interagency interoperability later on, but all the system radios are flashed for ADP, so they can enable it at any time.

This situation had a positive outcome for the firefighters and PD as in they all went home, not so good for the perp- but it was his choice, his plan, and he got what he asked for. He was planning this for a while allegedly and chose firefighters as they are unarmed. Good work GCFD, and even better GCPD SWAT for taking this scumbag inbred white trash out.

Releasing this radio traffic showing law enforcement and emergency services in a POSITIVE light has more value than Sandy Hook. I think a line has to be drawn somewhere.

and that's why I think officially provided feeds are the way to go, not just to fight the evil "E" word, but to give those involved some say so in what gets released.

If one wishes to stay on the good side of the agencies we monitor, that is the RIGHT way to do it.
