Bennville could not be more in denial.

Any human without blinders on would see a problem walking down main street any summer night. The baby buggy parade with the baby daddies with no shirts, pit bulls and neck tattoos. When the biker bar was open, there were weekly fights 200 feet from the cop shop.

Clean the four king town up and maybe you won't have papers pointing out what a sheet hole Bennville has become.

Start by *keeping* the dirtbags in jail when you catch them. Instead of asking for more money for tanks and assault weapons, Mr. Doucette, why not have your puppies walk a beat *every single day*? Start on Main, go down Pleasant, across Park and back through School. Then head down River and hit Depot and Benmont.

Maybe then the dirtbags *might* notice they *could* get into trouble.

Naw... Just claim everything is fine, and quotes were taken "out of context".

That should make Bennville a tourist Mecca. Yeah, right.
