    Someone stole a car! You people act like it is MHS' staff that was irresponsible and negligent. AND yes I do blame the MPD to a degree. Get the thugs off our streets!!! Shelborne has nothing to do with that yet (I'll let ya know how I feel about him after he has had at least year to get the department straightened out). You can thank your old police chief for that one! But still a mascot costume, Really??? don't you think the theft of the car is a bigger deal? Some people are so ignorant and oblivious!
