    Aren’t we glad we didn’t waste the money our chief of police want to spend on shot spotter. Now that the good people that live in the area has started calling the police and trying to take their neighborhood back from the thugs.

    When you see something suspicious call the police, don’t wait to hear the gun shot.

    Just another day in paradise. When all the potential witnesses disappear when things like this happen, is it any wonder that the thugs will continue to do what they do with impunity?
