  1. So, I hear there are idiots that want to defund the police departments. As for me, I would like to see more police on the streets, more arrests being made, more thugs going to trial, and judges putting more people behind bars for a long time. As I have said before, I sat in a courtroom when a young thug walked up to Judge Cunningham to answer to why he had not paid his little bit of money to stay out of jail. The judge seemed flabbergasted that the guy was walking the streets with 5, yes I said FIVE, attempted murder charges against him. He said he would have put him behind bars. But that is what is happening in our courts today. People who should be locked up are walking the streets with us. The guy paid his pittance and left the courtroom grinning. Yep, he beat the system.

  2. You guys should do a shooting and murder count daily like they do for Covid. Natty would have some impressive numbers.
