Sorry but this is the best I can do. I'm not fluent in "retard" so I guess you'll have to fill in the blanks the best you can.

Franklin's a goofball. He talks like he just rolled in from the farm. Never struck me as being very bright, and with the amount of crime going on in Erie that just keeps getting worse, didn't seem to me he was doing much ss police chief. Hopefully the new guy will tighten up the ship and do an intensive crackdown on juvenile crime in this city. All these thugs running around with guns they're not even old enough to possess legally, and most of them are stolen or bought on the black market or traded for drugs. I think that anyone underage that's found to be in possession of a gun should get an automatic 10-year sentence. It might make the rest of them more reluctant to carry a gun on Erie's streets. Maybe Bowers will have a plan. Franklin never did.

There is no age to legally own guns. I had them when I was 12 years old.

He has inherited quite a mess.

According to his etn interview, he will even address the small things.

I for one would like to see a earlier curfew. I'm really tired of watching/listening to these punks run the streets after dark. Weekends and summertime included. Parents need to be responsible or pay up.

If I ever had to get an escort home in a cop car my old man would have kicked my a**.

You think Franklin was bad? Who do you think Franklin replaced? Bowers brother! The same brother that went all tough guy on some kids for squirting him with a squirt gun. Guaranteed Randy will be just as bad!

<quoted text>Chuck Bowers grabbed the kid (assault) and held him there to reprimand him. Kid obviously wanted to leave and couldn't (kidnapping and/or unlawful detainment) Bowers got away with it because he was a badge. if you or I had done that we would be facing charges.
So to answer your question, I would do whatever I could within the boundaries of the law.
And now this kid is a police officer...I think Bowers had a part in turning him around. Bowers also never charged him because he said it would ruin his chance of going in the service..Bowers let him go..and then the family turned on Bowers...so stick that in your pipe and choke on it.

He's talking about handguns. You must be 18 to legally possess a handgun in Pa. And you need a permit to carry in a vehicle, or concealed.

Erie is so messed up right now. You've got heroin and pill junkies everywhere. And I do mean everywhere. Heroin and pills have moved so easily right into Erie and Erie County and I swear to God it seems as if the cops are oblivious to it all mostly. Pittsburgh and Detroit scum are supplying it and it has been going on for years now! Not long ago there wasn't even a pill or Heroin problem here and you couldn't even find them if you wanted too. Now, it is everywhere in all places in good neighborhoods and bad. Not to mention the entire lower eastside has gone to complete crap. There are more illegal guns then ever on the streets. My point is, someone needs a better plan than whatever is out there now. It starts at the top. We have a moron for Mayor, Police Chief, and County Executive. None of whom think outside the box and don't seem to have any idea how to make this city and county a better place to live. Here are a few: use inmate labor for more community projects. A basically free work force in our county and state prisons. Another: explore the possibility of building a bridge over the bay from downtown Erie to Presque Isle. This would funnel a lot of traffic through the downtown thus many, many more options for the downtown! Another: use existing laws for jay walking to issue tickets and give officers reason to stop and frisk many of the idiots who walk right down the middle of the street? Another: set up a hotline or web page to anonymously turn in drug dealers and addicts with a special task force assigned to investigate them solely. You can't change any of Erie's problems with the same old approach. This is such a dinosaur city and like the dinosaurs, we are becoming extinct.

you know it's funny that everyone can sit behind their computers and criticize city officials. yet don't have the balls to actually go out and do something to help. you sit there bitching and moaning yet none of you are willing or could do their jobs. at least these people who are holding the positions are stepping up and trying to make a difference which is more than any of the self absorbed losers posting on this site do. get off your lazy fat asses; leave mommys basement and join the force or run for an elected office. then we'll see how much your opinion changes when the shoes on the other foot.

AFTER the incident. Perhaps a favor because Bowers' ass and pension were on the hook as well as millions from the City? Save it loser.

Ironic how someone with the handle "The truth" sits and criticizes anyone who tries to post the truth.
Back in 2003 the retort about "living in mommy's basement" was an awesome comeback. Now it's just played out. Losers still think that they get the last word by using it though so all I have to say is that I am in YOUR mommy's basement creeping until everyone is asleep and then she comes down and I feed her. If you have to ask "what?" then you are up way past your bedtime on a school night and are too young to be on the internet unsupervised. Log off immediately!

You're arent posting the truth; you're posting your opinion. big difference. and talk about weak comebacks the "I bang your mom" line is older and more played out. if that's the best you can come up with I feel very sorry for you. you can go see a counselor for your necrophilia b/c my mothers dead you ass. try doing something useful with your life. you want to sit behind a computer and cut the elected officials of erie down, but wont do anything to help. i'm betting you didn't even go vote.
