Clearwater, Florida - Double Homicide

All it takes in Florida, The Most Baneful State in the Union, is a simple argument.

Derrick Kelly Harris, 23, and William John Hamilton, 30, were shot during an argument with a third person about 11 p.m., the Clearwater Police Department said.

An ambulance took one victim to Morton Plant Hospital, and a friend dropped off the other, officials said.

Investigators said they do not believe the double shooting was a random act.
What's your opinion? Has it always been this bad in Florida or are things getting worse?

Please leave a comment.


  1. Things are getting worse.....because its more guns on the streets....It was a time when they would wait for you to leave your home and break in your house....Now they just wait for you to get home so they can do a home invasion instead....Btw William J Hamilton was my brother.

  2. Anonymous, I'm very sorry to hear about your brother. Thanks for commenting. You're right, "its more guns on the streets." That's the problem.

  3. i'm truly sorry for both families. i grew up in a housing project in wv inthe 70's. never saw a gun. the only time we saw the police is if the music was too loud. we tried to make the best with the little we had. killing was not an option. laura j.

  4. Thanks, Laura. I hear ya about the differences between then and now.
