obviously, you are a frustrated writer - little paragraphs every time you post. You sound so contrived as you accuse someone else of that. Re-read all of your posts on every police/fire article, you do not sound as intelligent as you are attempting to appear. Now comment back all you want - you are an idiot and I am through with you.
