By the way, lets give the new chief a chance. It isn't fair to judge him based on the history of the previous chiefs.

Can't we all just get along? If one wants to act like an arze, more than likely they will be treated like an arze.

I think alot of the people in the area need to be profiled..If it looks like a thug and walks like a thug, it most likely is a thug.Iwalk alot at the 2parks in Warren, and if you pass by most people they speak or at least nod their heads, but if you cross most black peoples path ,they give you a hateful look like you just killed their dog or something.

Police state 2.0

Why did it take 9 years to settle with the DOJ?

62 officers on the force? How many chiefs sitting behind desks protected by the union? How many Indians on the streets?

Until the predominate element of people infecting the city are removed it'll pretty much be business as usual.

Neighborhood watch people should not be armed as the Zimmerman case proved. Racial profiling is alive and well in Warren as the responses to Trib articles prove every day. A cell phone and 911 is all they need. No wannabe cops needed.

After the Niles incident, I heard Zimmerman and Charles Bronson want to come to Warren and start their own block watch programs.
