If the Portsmouth City Council and Mayor don't remedy this situation with the first Homeless Police Department in history in the worst city for crime I am going to start wondering if they are in on the crime.

It is crazy that our police dept does not have a station. Where are the priorities? I commend Horner and his officers for continueing to fight the war On drugs in Portsmouth regardless of not having a station.

They don't really need another building. There is space in the building they're in now. Honer's complaint was from being in the old building. It seems like there should be space at the new jail too. It has such huge rooms...what a waste of money...
If you give the government your money, they will waste it well for you. They need to get things together, because there are No More Blank Checks!

It takes more than just bleach to re-mediate the black mold. Besides the fact the clean up that is being undertaken as we speak, the removal company has disturbed asbestos during the process. How long and how hard is it to remove the partials that float in the air from asbestos? One prominent diseases caused from asbestos is mesothelioma. I sure would not willing go back into my work if that was present. Would you?

Something has to be done about this. I can't believe it has gone on as long as it has.
