This is amazing! Kudos to all the volunteers doing such amazing work in the community. Its a ray of hope. Please post information for people that want to volunteer in the community in a story update.

FNP often lets unhinged or borderline racist comments slip through. Its just a mark of their generally sub-par journalism and the culture that has thrived in the petri dish of the comments section. How about disabling comments on all crime related stories? If you aren't going to regulate …
