    Since the Murderapolis Police Chief has admitted on TV News ::: We know who they are, and what they are doing. In every shooting, charge the Murderapolis Police Chief as an accessory to the Crimes. It has Broken it’s Oath of Office and should be charged with Sedition and Treason. If, you as the Police Chief know who the Criminals are? Then I have a 3 part question ::: Why are they not in Jail? Why are they not in Prison? Why are they not dead? Stop blaming the Firearms and start blaming the Criminals.
