Good morning, everyone, it's 12:07am. Well, yesterday was a pretty intense day here in the neighborhood, especially from 4:30pm to 6pm. Gang members were running rampant. It appears they stopped for tonight, but who knows if they'll go at it again tomorrow or not (personally I would like if they kept the peace). Also, I may not get to report crime today at all other then before I head to bed. My sister may have to go to the emergency room because she tore a ligament following a fall on the ice a couple of days ago. So, if I don't report much today, I'll really make up for it on New Year's Eve.
