    Why aren’t the police doing more around West U? These stories are getting ridiculous. They pulled me over for stopping at a stop sign for 2 seconds instead of 3 – focus on the real criminals! Why aren’t they using our tax payer money and doing more to stop crime jn our city?

    This is unreal – are they finding these people?
