    THANK GOD THERE ARE A FEW GOOD MEN WITH THE GUTS TO GO OUT EVERY DAY AND DEFEND THE FREEDOMS, PROPERTY AND LIVES OF OUR POPULACE SO THE CRIMINALS DONT BREAK DOWN THE DOORS AND RAPE AND PILLAGE WITH WANTON DISREGARD. WITHOUT OFFICERS LIKE OFFICER BONAMINIO, NONE OF THE PEOPLE WOULD BE SAFE, EVEN FROM THEIR OWN FAMILIES. THE DOPERS WOULD STEAL YOU BLIND AND CUT YOUR THROATS.
