Honestly I don't blame the town for not saying who. The police already failed them numerous time and the guy was a predator, abuser and threat to the people in say town. Give them that win on finally removing a dangerous person. Note I don't support murdering in any form but the police had the chance to protect the people who were forced into fear because of this low life so them killing him to have peace I say let it remain unsolved and whoever did it great job

@Thepanpiper well, I guess one could see it and just hear 2 guys trying to figure out their stance on a subject out-loud, maybe bouncing ideas off each other.. yeah I could see that. But if we’re just sticking to the instance I mentioned above. I guess what did it for me was when he made some comment and followed it up with, “…but just to be clear…” which was directed to us; the audience. Kind of patronizing.

@ToniAnn Brooks ...what opinion do you think they're trying to sanitize, exactly? What do you think they're trying to say?
