What kind of cruiser responded?
Unpublished

A two tone Ford or a silver Dodge? Inquiring minds want to know. ACES could do a study on response time, Ford vs, Dodge. Or a study on business impact between Milton Reuben Dodge and Bobby Jones Ford?

Which model and color appeals to criminals who have to ride in the back seat? How wide are the rear doors of the Dodge? Ford?

The Sunday headline better. From reading here about Harrisburg, nothing that happens there surprises me.

The victim's account is suspect. Someone asks for you by name and then shoots you ?

Although Augusta homicides are up compared with this time last year, police say a two-month absence of any is proof that some of their crime initiatives are paying off.
