Quotes

"events like these are crucial to the overall mission and the turnout today shows that. we had people lined up since 11 o'clock today. just to stand inin line in this heat and to shake hands, and people are all smiles, and it's just a great day for the community" Roundtree said
"The gang is not just sitting back, waiting on kids to come to them," Roundtree said. "they're actively pursing kids. they're going to events, they're going to places where kids hand out and they're trying to promote a better lifestyle, but it's a destructive lifestyle."
"vicious crimes can happen anywhere. you know, sometimes they think this is a small quiet town compared to some of the larger cities up north. this just goes to show you evil can strike anywhere, even in your own backyard" says Sheriff Roundtree
