    Carmel must be pizzed right about now.

    Brainerd is going to see people into Fishers to launch random acts of crime just to skew the count.

    It is because they have the proper number of police officers. Indianapolis would be safe if Ballard did not lie. He says Public Safety is job #1 so watch him leave this week and turn his back on the two fallen heroes. Yep that's right he has to go on his Overseas all Expense Vacation with his wife and grafter buddies.
