Great job by the Richmond

Great job by the Richmond Country Fire Department and arson investigator Lt. Brown. The Fire Department is understaffed in investigations as is the Sheriff's office and incidnets such as this should remind us of their importance. What a poor excuse of a father.

Thank you subsidy programs.

Thank you subsidy programs. Look at the desperation on this man's face. Look how he acts. Please...stop helping. The unintended consequences are destroying a huge part of our society.
