Nick, Unfortunately, you get a fatality there, they you will see at least Jane Bonner. Again, Sarah "Usually Late As Ever" Anker is sleeping somewhere and only comes out when the "all clear" signal is made...you know like the last hurricane. That they can take a few minutes out of their Not Busy Day to look into what's going on...maybe do a "ride around" photo op with News 12, at least, is, apparently, asking too much. Even making the illusion of concern is too much and not in their schedule. The thing is they know what's going on there after dark, and that's why they are not there...even "faking it" ! You see, that would be "making an issue" of things, embarassing to the people and Interests that they are beholden to. DM/MP knows what I am talking about.

Well let's see how this weekend goes. Again I go back to the theory of a very local resident is the one who did this. There is no way with the manpower used that he slipped away. Of he did it in a vehicle they can monitor vehicles in certain areas. This moron walked out then went into the woods and backtracked to his shack that helps our area look good.

I'm hearing that there were arrests made at the south end of Tyler Ave (MP) last night. Anyone have any info? Things are getting crazy around here. What gives??
Nick March 04, 2012 at 03:15 PM
What gives? Well Howard, we have a painted face guy running around with a shotgun. Helicopters, k9, etc. question is, why have they not made an arrest?? Yesterday I drive down Waterville drive. What a dump.
