88 Wheels, Tires Stolen Off Cars at Galveston Dealership


Thieves have stolen the wheels from 22 new cars and trucks at a Southeast Texas dealership and left the vehicles on unsteady wooden blocks.

Texas City police are investigating the theft of 88 wheels, including tires, from DeMontrond Chevrolet.

The Galveston County Daily News reported Monday that some vehicles fell off the blocks and have frame damage. No damage estimate was immediately released.

Investigators believe the theft happened between Saturday night and Sunday morning when the dealership was closed. Sgt. David Fairchild says the crooks cut the locks off the gates, snipped wires to light poles and stole the wheels.

Damn, that's a lot of wheels and tires. Took a while, time and space to haul them off. Surely someone saw something?

Please explain Heroin's allure to me.

Because I don't understand. I'm a 56 old white male. I smoked cannabis about half a dozen times about 30 years ago, and all it did was make me hungry and sleepy. So I gave it up. I have never used tobacco. The only alcohol I drink are frozen mixed drinks, and I can't remember the last time I had one. I don't like getting drunk or high because I do not like to be out of control of my senses. I even quit taking some OTC antihistamines because they make me high. So I do not understand the allure of something that has shown repeatedly to be so deadly to so many people. And why are so many creative people seemingly drawn to use Heroin?

City Agrees to Stop-Frisk Reforms as Mayor Seeks to Drop Appeal

Source: NBC 4 New York

Lawyers for the plaintiffs in New York city's stop-and-frisk court cases say the city and the plaintiffs have reached an agreement for a monitor to oversee reforms of the police tactic.

Lawyers for the Center for Constitutional Rights said Thursday that the deal calls for the reforms to take place under a scenario set down by a federal judge last year.

They say the deal calls for a monitor to serve a three-year term. The monitor will oversee a process in which those communities most affected by the stop-and-frisk tactics will provide input into reforms.

The announcement came shortly after the administration of Mayor de Blasio filed court papers seeking to drop and appeal of the judge's findings.
