How can Modesto be a miserable place to live? With multiple robberies in one night, stabbings and drug deals at the mall, and drive-by and open-door shootings, Modesto is the new funhouse of the 21st century! And with our police chief screwing up the paperwork so we can't get money to fight gangs, it should be more fun soon! I think the police chief should resign and the FBI should take over the Police Department. Why increase taxes for new roads when it is not safe to walk or drive the streets in Modesto?
