  • It it evident that this young generation has not been taught by their parents to LOCK the doors & windows.
    33 years ago has faded from the memory of the U of F leaders and po-lice.
    Run a radio, email, TV, flyers to remind these kids to LOCK UP!

  • I cannot believe my comment got censored. But I wonder if the suspect had been another race if that race would have been mentioned?

  • Many of my comments never get posted. It was a discription. Nothing to do with. And yes if it would of been a bro they would of put in the discription.
