  1. Meanwhile the notorious drug den on Crystal Lake’s Short St. goes unhindered by the CLPD and NIDTF.

    Check out the underaged girls going in.

    What’s going on in that location.

    Why all the traffic and short visits on Friday nights?

    Could it possibly be drug trafficking?


    The impunity the dealer enjoys is what ticks me off.

    Maybe the CLPD can explain a twelve-year surveillance?

    Who got the warnings instead of tickets?

  2. Towns that publish these reports should include the overtime cost for the police officers.

    I know the OT is paid for with grant money that comes from another pocket, but it’s still money that comes from the taxpayers.

    This is one of the more insidious ways that government grows – Fedzilla bribes states and municipalities with their own money and plays favorites when doling it out.

    These grant programs(and most other grant programs as well) should be eliminated and taxes cut commensurately.

    If a town wants to run an enhanced enforcement program, it should be paid for with local funds.
