  1. We drove by there were 6 cruisers and the forensic unit…officers were also seen going upstair to an apartment in a building a couple doors down

  2. Wow.
    Last night I could hear someone screaming bloody murder around 10:30 in the hillcrest area.
    Wonder if it’s related?

  3. That’s what happens when you have people released on probation, second probation and so on. This system is broken and criminals know it. Its only time before they do more of the same or worse. Prayers go to family of deceased.

  4. What I find more alarming than all these murders , assaults and drug dens is how SILENT Bill Mauro and the rest of council is . We elect these people to run this city and not a peep out of them , it’s almost like there’s nobody in council chambers . It’s high time to take these officials to task and start asking them the hard questions !

  5. Another person out on bail and commits another crime. This time murder. Wow. Isn’t our justice system working just wonderfully ??
