    How is the truth Racist George?
    A fact is a fact, or would you rather put the citizens of Holland at greater risk by not giving a description of a wanted criminal ?

    Would you feel the same way if the criminal were white skinned


    Maybe if the cops weren't out harassing people, they would have had time to deal with this… I know someone who has an officer yesterday "watching" their house, ALL DAY, for someone who doesn't live there anymore who has an FOC warrant. Why would they waste time staring at a house for friend of the court, just hoping to catch the guy, when they could have been out solving real crimes all along, like this robbery. And yes, this happened about the same time as the robbery, so the cop could have been dealing with finding the guy who robbed the store instead of watching a house for someone who is long gone….
