  1. Interesting.. how & since when, is discharging a fire-arm through a window considered ‘Not a threat to the general Public’.??

    I feel like we are living in a scene from ‘The Purge’ & not one of our public officials can see past the mask on their end of their noses.

    It is time.. for us to gather the angry masses on the steps of City-Hall, just sayin’.

    Pitch-forks & Torches.!!

  2. Wonderful. Paul Quesnel,a federal offender, who stabbed someone just last month yet he is out on the street terrorizing more citizens. The catch and release program in this city must cease.
