Good God, Channel 7, where have you been??!! There has been an escalating gang problem in Laporte for at least the past 5 years. My daughter goes to school there. I've lived in the area for 20 years. We have supper at Laporte Pizza (in the daylight). I buy my lottery tickets at the Branding Iron (in whose parking lot the shooting took place). My veterinarians are in the plaza at the traffic light. I KNOW THIS AREA. The local law enforcement needs to CRACK DOWN!!!!!!!!!! Get the d*mn trailer parks out at 2025 North College and 4220 WCR54G. The "problem" will be greatly alleviated. Check the Larimer County Sheriff's Department daily reports if you don't believe me.

I think that maybe the biggest problem is a lack of tough school administration at CLP Jr. High before Williams took control. Under the old Ed Crockett era there was much more discipline. I also feel that our sleepy town needs to run out the gangs. Don't shop at Hardware Hanks and help run out the Thompsons who are the ring leaders behind all of the gang activity.
