Keep your eyes open when you’re out and about. We live in paradise so we can at times let our guard down. More than ever we need to stay alert to our surroundings and the good people of our fine area need to have each others back. The government both federal and state are releasing criminals early. Ridiculous pardons and ridiculously short sentences have placed all of us at risk.

Law and order leadership is long over due.

Drop this sociopath into the prison system and find ways for him to never get out.
