Cinder block dropped on a Police Cruiser? The new America. Maybe we can give the Point more free stuff so they'll like us .

I don't know any other area in Salem where there is less respect for property and the police. The money to be spent on a park and water fountain will be a giant waste because it will be destroyed within a week of being finished.
