The problem with people in this town today is that everyone is calling the cops on their neighbors for things that we let slide years ago; fireworks on the 4th included. You can't sneeze the wrong way without someone calling the cops on you. PLEASE save 911 for the REALLY IMPORTANT emergencies and maybe then we could get along A LITTLE BETTER...

I completely agree. Stop running to the police every five seconds.
