How on earth can these facts justify what the police did to the Childrens Theatre??
Did some idiot actually believe the staff had robbed the theatre and stolen their own checks??? This is nuts.

Read Firemans posts he clearly outlines who did it. And we all know why. Why? because they think the staff was over paid and the over all cost was too much so they hit them in the Achiles heal. Instaed of working to promote the arts they have effectivly silenced them. Whats Next? Rinconada Park? Well the city could use the Money and well we could fit 140 MCmason homes and make nearly A BILLION DOLLARS! The first thing we have to do is close the JR. Museum that will be easy I hear the racoons are illegaly stealing junk from the garbage cans. after that we pull down the swing set and fill in the sand box...

George. No one knows what happened. That is why there is an investigation to determine the facts and clear the innocents of any wrong doing.
