    That's my bullsheet detector going off. Something smells here. Was the back door truly broken in? Was the woman already in her hidey hole when the perp came in? IMPD detectives…time to ask some hard questions. I watch enough of the I.D. channel to know when red flags abound,

    The cops donet seem to be in a big hurry to catch this animal…yet Bisard still walks the street a free man,enjoying life.Cops, they really could care less about us, its all about protecting themselves and Terry Curry who wont prosecute the big cases.The cops really have no desire to catch this killer because they know that Curry wont prosecute it to the fullest
