What’s the matter? Afraid of a little transparency?

Princeton, WV the city where they don’t investigate. They trespass onto your property then they come into your house with no warrant. Then here’s the best part then they EXECUTE you for suspicion of driving ATV on grass. WOW this right here is just another 1 of the millions of reasons America now hates the police. youtu.be/BfXtmXwah7E?si=MnHhz3Aju5_RHO_F
