OUTRAGEOUS! So if a child finds a gun and kills him/herself or someone else, because it’s ‘accidental’ the death won’t be counted.

LRPD has always"cooked" their crime stats. You can't use excuses to lower crime. #TimeForChange #CleanOutLRCityHall

Memphis would kill for these murder rates. But they have taken down the Confederate Statues so I do expect their rates to plummet to LR levels as a result.

I look forward to Little Rock being a featured city on First 48 soon.

They have enough homicides to qualify.
