Oh Jerome, Your posts are so tediously. Please quit boring us with your monotonous rants (your description, not mine). Perhaps if you had some legitimate suggestions on how to effectively reduce the gang population and the crime rate in Novato people would take you seriously. …. as it stands now, you are nothing more than white noise.
