    Sounds like another welfare tweeker who had just left one of the notorious watering holes and was looking for a fix or a fight…or both.

      I think he is the kid that used to live a block down from our house on elm Street. He was what might be called developmentally disabled, but he was a nice kid.

    We should all be thankful for the services of our Law Enforcement for the most difficult jobs they encounter daily. We all have problems and issues but these officers never know day-to-day how their life’s can be changed. Stay safe out there and THANK YOU!
