Citizen, have you called the police to report these 'thugs', including a description, location, direction of travel (if applicapable), what the thug(s) are doing to get your attention, etc.? At times, there are only 3 officers on duty covering approximately 15 square miles and 17,000+ citizens and an untold number of people staying in motels. Just saying that, at times, doing things like making DUI arrests, handling domestic violence calls, drug arrests, directed patrols for burglars and so on, will take priority over chasing and/or following kids all over town.

To answer your question about curfew, yes it is 11pm Sun - Thurs and midnight on Fri and Sat for anyone under the age of 18, unless they are out during the course of their employment, e.g. delivering the Southern newspaper.

Yes, I have called the Police. My vehicle and neighbors have been messed with also she saw 4 of them early morning around 5 am shining flashlights into a persons car. why so offended for me voicing a concern over an issue ? I know the police are busy, did I say they weren't doing their job..you seem to take this as something personal, why ??

It wasn't that long ago that we heard when we get older there will be no social security. We thought about it for a minute and then laughed it off. It seems now a days we think about things less and laugh about it more. You got a generation of kids that come home after school in the 3rd or 4th grade with no parents home and can pretty much do whatever they want. They don't have to answer to anyone and have not learn the meaning of respect. Whatever happened to playing outside all day and then getting mad because your parents are yelling at you to come in because it is dark? What about those days when is was 100 degrees or 0 degrees and you were outside and didn't even feel it because you were too busy playing a sport or riding your bike? You can blame the kids, but we should blame the parents also. Oh well end of the world is December 21st so we will not have to worry about it much longer.

" The implication " how dare I question or ask anything. Was C'mon Marion police offensive ? seems a little thin skinned, how about as a TAXPAYER you have a right to be concerned about things, and are glad you are pro active. No criticism intended however, i pay the salaries of all government, local, state, and federal soooooooooo what if i have an opinion about something, taking a taxpayer funded job should come with some accountability. If that is too much then i suggest going into the private sector, and generating your own income, how's that foe an idea ?

Always love the "I pay your salary" comments. Actually, all those salaries you claim to pay also pay taxes. Guess they pay their own salaries.

You must be a Government leech, brilliant well thought out response. That in itself leads me to conclude you are not a self thinker. Please explain the 1st amendment then genius ...can't recall it saying only applies when conversation is in agreement. Hope you can follow the narrative..

You could just do us all a favor and remove yourself from this state/county/city if you don't like all the taxes that have been imposed on you. While I may occasionally complain about our politicians, I never use the "I pay their salary" line. And for the record, it's ma'am not sir.

The you " Ma'am" are uninformed and never will be.... END of conversation, I can remove myself from that. Unfortunately I can't remove myself from this county, state, etc: due to obligations financial and other, when I can i will leave and move to another area that doesn't require high taxes, may i suggest to you pay your taxes and be quiet about it...

I'm not the one whining and complaining about MPD then back peddling when I'm called out for it. You must be related to the idiot that is whining about the coal miners.

yes, agreed as in all fields of employment some good, some not...my observation career miners are hard working good people, your references about the miners is a generalized statement...

Why are you out at 11p.m.? Are you typing this from a stolen computer? Maybe you should follow them home, and let their parents know! Thanks for the help "we" appreciate it.
