Rich: It dosn't happen that way anymore. For the past 10 yrs or more, you would give them a courtesy call and they would say ok, call back if you need us. They wouldn't know this local scum anyway like EHPD or BPD does. Besides, they are too busy investigating : Bullies with Badges" No respect for the Feds anymore. Good job EHPD and BPD.

Tattoos indicate bad judgement. Slope forehead- low intelligence. Wife beater tee shirt shows poor taste in attire. Probably cuts his own hair. Needs a shave. He'll be back among us in no time.
