    My daughter goes to childs way charter school in that area. The students there had to go to the basement of the school this afternoon. Their bus arrived in Cottage Grove 45 minutes late this afternoon. I would like to see the update on this story.

    Roger isn’t even in the house. There was no domestic dispute because his girlfriend was at work all morning. The neighbor heard Roger curse about something and overreacted. The cops just blocked traffic, kept people out of their houses for hours and destroyed a family’s home for absolutely nothing. They don’t even have evidence of a crime. They broke out windows to launch 3 cans of tear gas, and then blasted 40 pepper balls through the windows. The home is going to be unlivable. The dogs are probably dead. For what?
