Good for the persistent neighbors that stepped up and complained about the situation. And maybe it will draw attention to the serious problem around.

It would be a great move if this old house could be condemned and torn down. Really really bad and will continue to attract the same problems...

That’s fantastic ! Now if only we could get the city of Bradford PD to get off their tails and follow up on some complaints, maybe we could get rid of some trash just like this trash here .

I'm so dissapointed in you Rory. Shame on you!! You could have said no! I hope you sit in jail and think about what you did and the innocent people you could have hurt! You are where you need to be. Hopefully nobody bails you out-of trouble this time. (Clearly you won't see this but I needed to vent)

Yes as far as I know. They are in jail on $60,000 bond.

One by one they become "CI" confidential informants, in lieu of lengthily jail sentences and no one does much time...
