  1. The last time they said this the criminals were offended and went on a three weeks rampage.

    Waiting to see if the criminals tuned in to the latest reports.

    Perhaps most of the popular criminals is at 1735 so their is some respite so reports are down. This may be a tap on the back for the police

  2. Come on guys I’, waiting on the spin. Where are Tabor and his disciples of doom and gloom. This cannot go as being a good thing that happened. One murder is one too many. We should have zero. The UPP would have had zero if they were in power. Wouldn’t they?

  3. Keep up the good work RPFAB. Do NOT rest on your laurels. The fight continues to keep our country and people safe.
