    I’m guessing the ol” evil neighbor has had a policy change. For years it was rare that they gave a complete description or a picture if the perp. was other then white. Nice to see, report the news don’t put some liberal spin on it. Your credibility will increase.

      That’s liberal spin? You’re certain, right?
