The State Police are going to get tired of the massive amount of murders in Salisbury and become overburdened and the SPD is going to have to establish their own Homicide Unit like other crime ridden areas do.

Well Day may not say zero crime but he certainly has said on more then one occasion that crime is down and not only that but it's not an issue he even wanted to talk about. He said that to the OC Dispatch awhile back when interviewed.

Vigilantes have most likely taken care of this guy,because they continuously comb the streets & have attached surveillance cameras everywhere thanks to an anonymous donor.Evil doers in Salisbury don't get far.

That area is not what you call the "hood." What are you all problem thinking that every shooting is in thr so-called "hood"? A family lost a love one and all you can do is post negative comments. Shame on you all.
