    If HCSO does not take care of the Harlem hood problem just materializing now...they will never have enough manpower to deal with it later. Having experience in a big city with this need to stop this right now and take down the organizers and keep them from migrating into montura and elsewere.

    The so called prosecutor that received this case should be disbarred for doing such a POOR JOB with this case. He dropped the case without even trying to solve it. "(So much for the justice system)."Only our LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST will give our family justice. It will be sooner than we think for JESUS CHRIST is our Comfort!
