it looks like it was adult night to get into trouble
I can't for the life of me understand how the city police can arrest Walsh, charge him with a felony, yet let another who deliberately damaged someone's property, off the hook.
Maybe the chief can explain it, I sure as hell can't.Looks like selective law enforcement.
In both cases, over a $1,000.00 in damages were incurred.
Just wondering. Am I losing it, or was there something in a previous comment, alluding to KFC?
Or, was that comment deleted?
Wow, shoplifting from the general. Nothing like going down in a "blaze of glory."
Ed, it was deleted, I thought it had some public service value, Billie thought differently.
I agreed with her to an extent.The responsible parties are employed there.The damage was bad enough, but the way it was done is quite appalling.Wish it would have been county jurisdiction, I'm certain the outcome would have been different.
OK, Frank. Thanks for the heads-up, anyways.
Not quite sure about the reason for deletion, but, that's not my call.
