    Meth heads like this run wild in Springfield 24/7. And what is the City Manager worried about?
    Chief Smith, a faithful law enforcement officer with 43 years service, shared a kiss between consenting adults. It’s no wonder that crime is rampant in Springfield when the city government is more concerned with persecuting our first responders than it is with prosecuting their criminal population.
