Im so sick of the newton police department thinking that they are legitamit. They drink and drive ALL the time and then turn around and arrest others for it. Childish townies who could not do anything else with there lives had some random family connection and decided to be a cop where they parade around as tough guys even thought hey were losers all of their lives.
