Shame on the falmouth pd???? What are you talking about. Falmouth PD is constantly making arrests in "criminalville". People in this town have had blinders on for a long time. There is a huge drug problem which opens the flood gates to several other types of crimes. The FPD took two guns of the street the other night and prevented a possible tragedy. Instead of putting them down, how about you give them a big THANK YOU!!!

We are talking about young adults, in a drinking environment, that hip-hop music that supports violence and drugs was being played... This was an obvious issue that an impared, deaf, blind and blind person could have predicted. Personally, the heinous level of this incident is extremely low. Much like if you slapped a horse in the ass and got kicked in the face. Simply what young KIDS do impared, and in an environment such as that... The town should set up more events like this. It would sure as hell make it easier for Falmouth PD to round up these people, because we all know there investigative abilities only go as far as google and stool pigeons. I vote to keep the events coming!!!!!
