    I refuse to believe that all of these heinous crimes are being committed ,and Nobody knows who the criminals are!!!! That’s a bunch of _______.
    Usually, when someone does something like robbery, rape or attempted murder,they can’t keep it to themselves for too long. They tell their Hommies, or start acting suspicious,looking over their shoulders, watching al directions, get glittery and agitated over little things, and gets feverishly concerned about details reported concerning these types of crimes. People of the community, put yourself in the victims’ place and let’s get serious about catching these “criminals” and truly stopping crime here!!!!!!!!!
