Good Friday 2014

Good morning, and happy Good Friday, everyone. It's 10:20am. Sorry for no post yesterday, and actually for a few days during my break for that matter. Even being on break, I've been busy catching up on things and getting some much needed rest. Today, I'm monitoring on a special schedule in honor of Good Friday. Not only do I do this just to get a glimpse of crime around the city on a holiday such as this, but also out of respect to Christ (yes, I admit, I'm a Christian, and I DON'T apologize for it).

Finally, I do have several archives from this year and last year to catch up on, and there will be a post coming in the next few weeks giving dates and times of what I'm catching up on. I've also gone to three CAPS meetings in the last month or so, with two being this past week, and those posts will be up by the end of this month. With that, here's crime on this Good Friday.
