Good luck getting good people to be counselors next year with the witch hunt going on at the rec. Its funny when people use laws that were meant to protect children in order to falsely accuse kids of endangering the welfare of a child and hope for a settlement out of the city to pay for your kids college. How about we do something about the rampant prescription pill problem and drugs in this town? There's a thought.

Why don't you explain what happened instead of guessing at motivation?

Why - what specifically were they falsely accused of? What really happened? I am Ham Hands, and I demand answers.

Give it a few days and the Patch's "timely reporting" will be all over it. Which means regurgitating the company line offered up by the LBPD. Or they'll just ignore it. Same difference...

Well? What happened? Anyone? Patch where are you?
