Our followers are amazingly supportive. Thank you for being here.
This is difficult to ask, but we need your help. We’ve been telling you for weeks about organized efforts being waged against our network to silence & discredit us & cast aspersions on us.
Our detractors have existed since our launch 10 years ago. However, this effort has significantly ramped up since the May riots. In the past months, our follower base has grown & that reach is a threat to many who don’t want you to hear what we’re saying. Image
There are many people and power structures in this city and state that have a vested interest in you not having crime information or knowing about the criminal system revolving door. Their varied reasons include: politics, economy, power, control, social movements, etc.
