Quit wasting my tax money, CPD, you know this is the smallest of problems in this town. We are not interested in seeing drug and alcohol busts to inflate annual crime statistics and to compensate for the criminals you aren't catching.

Which of the bars got busted for public urination?  There were 33 citations total to the bars.  The numbers added up; but which bar performed public urination?  Was it a patron, or a bartender?  All of them were in campus town.  Maybe, that explains it.  Glad it was not one of the downtown bars.

Old enough to be drafted and die in combat, but not old enough to drink.  God bless the USA.
