  1. I don’t care for your Slim Jim’s add you offer, it is so offensive!

  2. There is no mention of the heroic efforts of a local RN and her friend who were first on scene to administer first aid and call 911, possibly savings the woman’s life. They were being driven home in an Uber vehicle when they heard the passengers in the car with the woman screaming for help in Spanish. With no regard for their own safety, these local heroes pulled over and jumped into action. They were able to interpret the passengers’ story to the police as no Spanish-speaking officials were on scene. Let’s no overlook their valient action.
