For some time now we have been watching the 'daily rerun' of Riot - Burn - Steal ... followed the next day 'those shallow, insincere media speeches' given by your mayor and the city counsel member...This odd messaging reminds me of what Mark Twain once said: " Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it."

Ask Spineless Ted and Jo Ann "I hate the police and everything about them. As a matter of fact I hate any kind of law enforcement" Hardesty.
