Not listening

I keep telling them, but they are not listening.

I suggest a radio spot that advises people to exchange information today. This is going to be a major ice event. I predict a record number of accidents. I was going two MPH and slid into the curb off of Superior!

you mean that normal, law abiding citizens, people don't stand outside of their apartments at 10pm ....WITH their purses, that randomly contain $300.oo cash. (unless they are waiting for the drugs they are buying to be delivered) Kharma is a crazy thing sometimes....

What bugs the hell out of me is that the news media seems to intentionally avoid looking into any drug history in the background of any home invasion victim. This leaves the impression that John Q. Public is at the same risk of HIR as is John Q. Drugdealer. Maybe they are just lazy and want your PIO to spoon-feed them everything, maybe they're just extremely naive, or maybe they tend to be pro-criminal.

Personally, I think the newsies like it when regular people panic and imagine themselves at great risk, because it sells more papers at retail, and attracts more viewers to local newscasts. If one tries to post a comment on a local news site, pointing out that it was probably a drug dealer ripoff, their moderators usually won't allow it!

Chief,

What was this about? Was that the Mississippi thing? I see it got dismissed. Wouldn't they pay to extradite him at that time?

10:00 -

It appears that after his February arrest on this fugitive from justice charge pertaining the the Mississippi warrant, he posted bail. For one reason or another, Mississippi's extradition papers were not transmitted to the County Attorney here in Nebraska within 90 days, as required by law, so the charge was dismissed.

Wow, an unusually self-incriminating robbery victim/dope dealer:

SW B 112 ROBBERY 2015 12-27-2009 11TH ST / VAN DORN ST A9-127429 PRS CAME IN HOME/STOLE DRUGS AND MONEY US CURRENCY/MARIJUANA

What a coincidence; the Magic 8-Ball is really acting up on this one too. I don't imagine the victim has any drug contact history, and it surely wasn't a cash & stash robbery...

That's an 8-plex owned by an out-of-state absentee landlord, rents range from 335-430 per month, not a moneybags kind of place. Didn't that bldg just have a burglary and an arson?

I'd think that a crew of FIVE armed men could get better loot than that legal stuff the story mentioned, stuff that they could more easily burglarize a home for while the residents were away. The story just doesn't pass the sniff test. I suppose that "medication" is partly true, at least some sort of "medication" anyway.
