We need to take back control of our town from these criminals by being active in the anonymous hotline system. We have all seen these activities going on right in front of us and maybe through fear of reprisal, as in the case of Lamont Coleman, residents have not called in. Again, EPA is going back on track to being the murder capital of the world. We need to stay active in policing our own house and not look the other way. I am so glad these were taken off the street for now and cant wait for their trials to begin.

I'd be happy to call an anonymous hotline - if I had any info to report. One of the reasons people don't use it is because they have nothing to report. The ones who do - well, how does one get "inspired" to do the right thing? [Portion of post removed.]
