Term limits are what keeps them doing what is right for the city. Eliminate term limits and we have what we have now in Congress, nobody wanting to do whats right for the good of the whole and only doing what will get them reelected from one term to the next.

Had he called the police and gave an accurate description they wouldn't have done a thing. I've lived in Warren for 8 years..here's a couple of examples of our police NOT doing their job. When I was a full time student and working full time 4 years ago I lived in a seedy part of town. My car was stolen out of my driveway, I didn't know til I got a call from WPD around 7 am. Officer Chris O'Rourke arrives at my house to take me to get it, accuses me of "probably trading it for crack" then it gets better when we get to the car he says you look like your under the influence and you have to leave your car here, when I told him he can give me a sobriety test he refused THEN charged me with failure to comply and tows the car. He takes me downtown gives me the citation and tells me to walk home. I went and took a drug test that day at CCC downtown to prove I was sober. Still cost me $1200 for a lawyer + $220 for the tow + $10 for the drug test + 3 court appearances for them to apologize and throw the charges out. Another example, same seedy neighborhood, my house is hit with gunfire and the bullet goes through the front door and out the side of the house. The officer shows up an HOUR later. Then asks are you okay, tell him yes and he says if you want a police report you can come down to the station in a couple of days. I have a lot more stories but you get the point, citizens have to monitor bc the police don't do squat.
