  1. So Mob Rule now? Drop charges on people that commit crimes….Do what we want or else we will harass you every moment of every day. Someone needs to start a group to identify these “Protesters” so that they can be harassed at their own homes…. Fascists!!!

  2. Ms. Richards is much too kind — lawbreakers need to suffer the consequences of their acts to serve as a deterrent to themselves and others who might contemplate lawbreaking in the future

  3. Allen County Prosecutor Karen Richards can thank Councilwoman Sharon Tucker for the assist. Since when has it been our elected officials response to thwart law and order? If our local elected Democrats can’t seem to express how these actions are illegal and wrong then a change should be made.
