  • So, don’t be surprised if the SWAT team shows up at your place of business, or your residence, even if you’re not involved in anything that might possibly construed as a violent crime…
    It’s all part of our new tyrannical, crony driven big government…
    Got it…

  • From a feeble old police chief on his 3rd retirement from the city. Chances are the whole thing was politically motivated by that inept city commission. Mostly liars and people who can’t function in the business world. Widely known that Hayes-Santos doesn’t like Nathan Collier. Most likely because he’s jealous of him because Collier is actually a success, not a government latch-key kid tied to his mothers apron strings.
