  1. It is about time. And if parents do not want to parent, throw them both in jail! Maybe it will get the message across to parents, you cannot let your kids run around!

  2. I live on Division St and kids run around all hours of the night knocking over trashcans and going on to people’s property to knock over Christmas decorations. Not seeing the PD doing anything about it honestly
