    “Good grief, is there no one that realizes crimes are not committed and solved during a 60 minute period like on TV?”

    I realized it. That’s why some shows are continued until the next week! TNT’s MAJOR CRIMES has already taken three weeks so far. I think COLD CASE FILES looks at cases which have gone years and even decades.

    David for due course

    Hopefully the next article about this boat will say who was arrested for stealing it and where it was found. BUT, not until the investigation is complete.

    Glad to hear boat was found! Hoping crooks will be felt with.
    We usually have a pretty nice and quite neighborhood other than occasional fast drivers roaring down Pine Top and the ripping the ditches up on the south end and some garbage and animal guts now and then.

    >>If you are going to print a headline saying boat is recovered, at least tell where they found the boat and who did it. Good grief, is there no investigative journalism anymore?

    Good grief, is there no one that realizes crimes are not committed and solved during a 60 minute period like on TV?

    *Where* the boat was found is part of an active police investigation. *Who did it* will hopefully be the result of that investigation, then warrants will issued, then an arrest will be made.

    Can’t report things that have not happened yet. Journalists are not psychics

    Was the motor still on the boat??? That’s usually what they are after seeing there is no registration tracking for motors.

    If it is not a “high priority case, happen in a high crime area, a HUMM DINGER”
    not worth their trouble. Of course when Morgan makes Goveror/Mayor things will be different.

    I just wish that some thief out there would explain to me why they think it is okay to just take something that is not theirs. Seriously. I can understand someone stealing food if they are hungry, or cloths if naked, but, even then, they could ask, and not just take..

    I will be on the lookout. It’s a shame we can’t have nice things.

    Creeps like these don’t have the money to get to Canada, nor do they have passports and Canada is watching their borders like hawks so take heart.

  15. smohockey on November 13th, 2017 8:02 am

    Hate to say it, but i’m sure its probably in Canada by now. Good luck

    Wow…. funny my entire race car and trailer went missing from my yard. A total of 35,000 and our fine officers still know nothing.
    I truly hope you have better luck than we did

  17. Whisperjet on November 13th, 2017 5:59 am
