  1. When is this shooting people everyday crap going to stop? When are the police going to start doing doing their jobs better instead of hiding beside a house waiting on speeder’s and start patrolling the higher crime rate areas and letting their presence be known instead of hanging out at IHOP that’s not what we’re paying them for.If their If they’re too scared they should find another job at a chicken or pig farm or something like that. Isn’t it weird how if you speak the truth about Jonesboro it’s always gets deleted?
