    How is it possible for so many rooms of this school be broken into and sound an alarm and yet the police responded but couldn’t find anyone?

    I have to wonder why?  The school is only 1 minute drive from the Police Station?

    I can assure you that this alarm had to have sounded for longer than a minute and the crooks would have been present for longer than a minute, but yet the police didn’t find anyone when they turned up?

    Who are we fooling here?

    If those in charge of the West Bay police cannot get a handle on things in this district maybe it’s time to change the capt. of the ship.  Well, in the real world that would be the first move to be made.  This district is so plagued with crime or are we only highlighting West Bay and covering up the other districts.  My inside sources tell me there are just as many crimes in GT and in the areas of South Sound, but we never hear about those now do we?

    Either give the district of West Bay more cops on patrol or find us a new competent replacement who will get the job done and not constantly request the publics assistance by blowing smoke in our eyes with the newspaper joy ride they have been on since taking the post.
