    Poker Run or Boat Show has nothing to do with these fires. Maybe these boat men need to watch the lives they are living. Nothing bad ever happens to innocent people. Just my opinion.

    Hopefully this will kick start a new era of community and police partnering together to create a safer environment where people can live their lives without fear.

    All these guys have to do now is put some hidden cameras up where they park their boats. When they come burn it, you go and then burn them, simple!
