Parents, Where are Your Children Tonight?
Comment by Carol on 20th September 2011
This is an eye-opener, but certainly only the tip of the iceburg. Why are children allowed out to hang out in town & look for trouble? Where are the parents, why are they neglecting their children? This is not a quiet safe little town, we don't know what is happening out there, start to take responsibility for your children. They are your responsibility, stop allowing them to run free. Anything can happen to them. The streets are not a safe place for them to be. Good reporting
