i live in a small town like you guys , theres more going on that meets the eye. drugs are the main thing that causes all the trouble. i watch channel 7 news & weather, i think lawton okla. is one of the worst cities for home invasion & drive by shootings.i'm not intending to knock anyones city, but ever day on the news they have something going on , i don't envy any police officers in any of the larger cities, they got thier work cut out for them, and it is going to get worse i think but hope i'm wrong.{ JMO }
