    Really, Troop C? When are you going to arrest Kirk Button, Brenda Shaw and Ponch Mcpeak for burglarizing my house WITH ME INSIDE? I’m not important enough for you to to fill out paperwork? I have PTSD because of your worthless “investigators.” Btw- NOTHING TO INVESTIGATE SINCE I CONFRONTED THEM AND CAN ID THEM. Morons.
