    A big “THANK YOU” to the Berrien County Sheriff’s Department for doing your job of catching bad guys by still pursuing them.

    MSP is becoming more and more useless. They often refuse to take complaints because they are on “traffic only” duty for the night but are incapable of doing that task with their newest joke of a pursuit policy.

    The state should just gut the department and funnel more money to local agencies.
