Why sure the police released the man stalking his girlfriend with the intent to harm/shoot/kill/pistol=whip his girlfriend! It's Lawrence! "There's nothing we can do," is probably echoing down the streets of Lawrence as we speak (just like the elderly woman who ended up dead in the ditch years ago because the police failed to protect her). No follow through to ensure the guy then takes his meds--oh, that's right he's no longer in LMH's now non-existant mental health unit because an ER the size of Toledo is more important--he's now out of local police jurisdiction. Hopefully somebody follows through on "duty to warn" the would-be victim instead of her having to guess from the newspaper report.

It's like another Jaeger...out of reach, not that it would matter with the way things are going around here lately. No punishment, no reason for them to stop.

Wonder why we aren't reading about the wave of car break-ins in East Lawrence? I know they were reported.

Because the only real crime for the blotter is in rich areas or areas of business.

Got that right, Ragingbear. The old lady down the street told me she thought she was going to have to stand on her porch with a rake and club the heads of anyone who looked suspicious. Guess that's how we have to do it over here.

Police didn't even come when called. They took reports over the phone. Is that standard procedure?
