  1. Really people? Grow up, and quit being tattle tales. Worry about your own backyard before you criticize others’.

  2. Thank you! Finally! I feel bad for the Perry Police, who have to get called about the most ridiculous things. I read these everyday and shake my head in disbelief how stupid some of these calls are, mostly just snitches and whiners wasting the Perry police departments time. So annoying.
