And it fails to come straight out,this article does,on exactly how many of those were total B.S. calls;Someones argument,music was loud,and believe this one or not,but I heard it; "some-one walked past my house,they need to be checked".

Our police department does a good job. 150 calls in one night for a small town like Parkersburg is incredible...and a shame. Sounds like we need to hire more officers. If the city decides to put an officer or 2 in each school and day care center to prevent another Sandy Hook the city will definitely need to hire more officers. Perhaps an increase in the user fee or a $500.00 tax on assault weapons can help defray the cost.
