  1. Glad that arrested have been made and things are back to normal! These delimquents need to be treated as terrorists as that’s what they basically committed, an act of terrorism in a sense! A strong message needs to be sent to others, lifetime ban on owning any form of device that allows access to Internet would be a start, that would be a great deterred in itself! There will be people out there that do not agree but it is that politically corr ct “you can’t hurt bad little boy Johnny’s feelings” attitude that has caused so many young hardened criminals in our society, you can’t punish anyone for doing wrong and thus social safety and justice has been thrown to the curb and we love in a careless society. I however tend to look to the positive side, awesome work by our police force in serving and protecting us, thanks guys and gals, now let’s hope the legal and justice system follow through so we can stop this from happening in the future!

  2. Sorry about the typos in the post in bad cell service and spell check kinda did it’s own thi but I’m sure you will figure out the proper grammar and spelling lol
