  1. Another day in paradise…
    Undiciplined, unregenerate, ungrateful humanimals! I’ve been practicing social distancing for years now. The coronavirus has nothing over the epidemic of absolute stupidity and foolishness! Seriously, teen’s with guns and a constant influx of murders and robberies. This has become way to common here in
    Jungleboro. Local law enforcement is in of help from this community. Citizens need to report Anybody they believe has committed any crime or offense.
    This should be taken very seriously and delt with using the proper channels and protocol. More will suffer, more will die,
    if something isn’t done immediately to deter these hanious acts against the innocent!

  2. It’s just getting worse because the criminal element (the majority in Jonesboro) almost never get caught and, even if they get caught, the law lets them to because it’s cheaper and easier than actually doing something about it. Low-IQ mowrons keep spitting out lower-IQ bastards and don’t even try to raise them right, just turn them loose to run the streets 24/7/365 doing whatever the hell it is they want to amuse themselves at everyone else’s expense. Shame on you people. Shame on the so-called law.
