    In defense of the police, if one reads a lot of blog posts, it’s obvious they aren’t the only ones who can’t spell.

    Well it would’nt matter if they did show up because most of Mt.Vernon police can’t spell anyway.

    We live in a society where we pay people to uphold the law, but too many other laws prevent them from upholding anything.

    I have to say that the alternative center is a real problem with bullying. My son goes to the bus stop there and I have had 3 occasions where he has been bullied by thugs from the alternative center and no one ever comes out to put a stop to it. Someone needs to be out there during bus stops and pick ups at all times to prevent this. It gets to the point where you want to go down there and put the shoe on the other foot.

    Why waste the Police time and the taxpayer’s money. Nothing is ever done when you call the Police or Sheriff. So fire all of them
