  • I’ll wait for the rest of the story there’s something missing!!good morning to all. 🌧

  • Straight from the rez

  • Need Wyatt Earp!

  • we do have laws but,people keep breaking them over and over. Strike three Bullshit gives crimanals cart blanc to do whatever they want. Book-em let-um GO.

  • Community Policing Itself

    Let the people provide for their own safety, let the people provide their own security, we don’t need more police, the police are the problem! We need to provide our own protection and our own security, keep it locked and loaded, why do we need to have a police force to call and put all the protection and security on somebody else, provide your own security and protection, if someone comes to rob or hurt u don’t back down, stand your ground and unload on their punk ass. The police and this sterile “safe” society is the problem. We didn’t have these problems when people “took care” of the problem. I don’t call cops, never needed too, I keep it locked and loaded and stay alert. Just try do something to me or mine and see what happens. If you can’t protect yourselves in the hills, then go move to a safe secure city. Provide your own security or move outta Hum.
