With the Sheriff retiring I hope with his replacement KPD morale is lifted and pride placed back into Killeen residence. Still the city forgets about the youth of Killeen. The city is quick for new businesses but is much quicker to forget about it’s youth.

FreshAir. I think you need some fresh air. There you go with the MAGA stuff. I bet 90% are liberals committing these crimes.

America was created by criminals. Crime is as much a part of America as apple pie. Has nothing to do with political party. Stop selling alcohol and decriminalize marijuana and poof…crime rate drops….but no …the maga nuts are running the show…look at them in the House..pointing fingers instead of fixing problems.

This is what happens when you vote for liberals, Crime rises.

Criminals go scott free even with marijuana but god forbid if you go over a few miles over the speed limit, you get a ticket but not for a drug.

Crime rate is rising along with murder rate and the top issue which has become litiges against Killeen are MARIJUANA LAWS!
