Discussions about local news can heat up, that's normal, but there's something extra provocative about a thread on KNDU's Facebook page. It's about the situation early Monday when a man rammed his truck into two patrol cars and then fought the sheriff and policeman. Check out some of the posts.

Basically, Tri-Cities residents are experiencing a range of emotions including pity, anger, sorrow and shock.

Family and friends of Shane DeWeber, the man driving the truck, are asking readers not to judge him. Others are upset that people would defend someone involved in this kind of accident.
