So sad the drug/gang violence is spreading to this once safe community. I'll need to send a note to our governor thanking him for focusing on law abiding citizens and not making any attempt to disrupt any illegal activities. Makes one wonder how much the drug and gun cartels are paying him under the table to keep them in business.
