    It IS time to bring these NEPA=Neanderthal imbeciles under control; half of them are older residents like this guy so it’s not just the young people. So tired of hearing; “oh he was on drugs, or oh he is mentally ill..” it’s time to get them of the roads and out of town! IT’s gotten so we need “Imbecile Camps.”
