      Classic ASSumption!

  • so what? January 26, 2015 at 6:10 pm

    Does anyone see a pattern going on lately? Our community is being over run Big Time. Shouldn’t the government be responsible for dishing out money for those in need of drugs? They do for sex changes, abortions, heathcare, cell phones, protest march participation, etc. Why not for needed drugs? It’s just not fair.
    At lease the government could supply store clerks with prevention training.
    (i.e. a 12 gage and maybe a cheap vest camera to document the kill).
