Mr. Wordes was a very nice man and a good neighbor. My husband and I feel sick about the way he was treated and about his death.

im glad i dont live in roswell anymore. the police and the courts along with all of the people in power there are crooked. the cops will try to arrest anybody for anything and they actively seek any sort of law breaking regardless of whether or not it is relevant or if peoples safety is an issue. the cities prosecutors will charge people with everything possible to try to get a guilty plea so they dont have to prove anything. i had a friend who got his car broken into the police recommended that he let them do a forensic test on it for fingerprints. he agreed, they did it, found nothing and then told him he had to pay them several hundred dollars to get his car back. i could not be happier to be out of that corrupt city full of evil authority figures. its a shame because the citizens are very nice for the most part.
