But attendance inside the school buildings is equally problematic due to fears about illness from the virus. We all feel for families trying to juggle jobs, child care, technology, homework, social isolation and not knowing what the future holds. [ 332 more words ]

My wife and I are both Sheriff Deputies in the Midlands and we bought the Ring doorbell not too long ago.The company came out with a very useful crime watch app called the Neighbors App and it is completely free. It allows you to upload photos/video to make posts of suspicious activity and also view what people around you are posting even using your cell phone camera. You can map exactly where the criminal activity took place and let your whole area know what’s going on. The Holidays are here and with the crime increasing this is just another great tool to stay up to date on what is going on in your area. The more people that post videos to this app the better success law enforcement has catching these criminals! We can’t do it without the communities help and the app is free to use for anyone regardless if you have a device or not!! From your phone,click the link below to download the App:

Friends of Facebook, I have reopened my account to ask for your help. We need to get Serina's story Into the media and go viral as soon as possible! Some of you think that after 10 months is case would have been closed out. It is nowhere near close out. For 6 months Moses Young obstructed Justice and was in the car when Serina was killed. They are not charging him with obstruction they're letting him go scot-free. They are offering Henry a negotiated 15 years for the death of Serina and his drug charges. This case has had 4 reconstructions, at least three different case numbers, 120 + pages on her report. Talking to the solicitor sounded like talking to Henry and Moses's lawyer. They are unwilling to do anything. If you know anybody in Media or you have Twitter accounts or can share this on Facebook please do so let's make this go viral to get Serina and her baby Justice for a unjust system that we are dealing with. There is corruption within the whole system starting from County all the way up to the Troopers. Please help us get this out so people know what is going on. This does not just affect our family this will affect yours at some point. If you have any questions feel free to dm me. I am pleading for everybody's help that is on my page to share this. Share it to the news stations. Share it with your friends. Share it with whoever you think will listen and help. Thank you to all my friends that are going to do this and understand that this is not right.
