    We are uneasy because this has been going on for almost a year in our area and it is still going on.
    So why would we feel safe- they have no clue who is doing this?

    rumor has it that the sheriffs office is not letting the public know everything about the
    divan rd. shooting. specifically evidence. but i suppose that is how you get the bad guys.
