The arrests continue....GOOD! I hope they lock them up and throw away the key! They steal more than purses, they steal power, dignity and a sense of control. I hope everyone comes out tonight for the Crime Watch Night out. I'ts a good thing for the "normals" to be visible on the streets. Keep walking your dog Anniken, I'll look our for you, you look out for me....
