  1. It was from a little kid's lemonade stand a few summers ago.
  2. DuBois City Police Proud to announce delivery of first of several Armored Vehicles LOCAL NEWS by: James Trickoski Posted: Apr 1, 2021 / 11:13 AM EDT / CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) Today, the DuBois City Police Department has received the first of three armored "MRAP" vehicles for the department use. "We are pleased to announce that the first fully armored patrol unit has arrived!" Said Police Chief Blaine Clark. "We are very excited to add an armored capability to the DuBois City arsenal." City Manager Herm Suplizio said of the new vehicle: "Its something the police department has needed for a long time...It's been a long time coming" When asked about the plans for the vehicle, Clark provided the following thoughts: "Well, first and foremost, its about the community. Once all three have been outfitted with lights and sirens, the vehicles will be used for patrolling the more dangerous neighborhoods as well as the "High Crime Areas" such as the Tannery Dam, Showers Field and the City Park. We also plan to use them extensively during Community Days for clearing the parade route of illegally parked vehicles." Clark and Officers with the City's first MRAP patrol vehicle Members of the community are very excited about the new vehicles as well. A local gas station manager, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said of the new fleet: "I'm looking forward to the economic benefit the community will be seeing with the introduction of these new vehicles. At 1/3 mile to the gallon coupled with a 200 gallon fuel tank, we expect to see some rather substantial gas purchases by the City. The tires also cost about $1900 apiece and wear out pretty quick, so there's that too...a lot of good stuff!" The MRAP, a Military "Mine Resistant April Phools" vehicle is used extensively in Iraq and Afghanistan. Once the military is finished with them, they are sometimes made available to police departments who need a little extra protection. The vehicles acquired by the DuBois City Police Department were provided by the US Army and shipped directly from overseas. "It was a sound investment" Said Mayor Walsh of the vehicles. "It cost the City about $42,000 apiece to ship them by boat from overseas, but we feel that the community deserves the best!" At a top speed of 28 miles per hour, they won't see a lot of use in traffic enforcement, but they may be used to enforce many parking laws around the city. "They do alright on the City streets." said one DuBois Officer who was recently trained to drive the new vehicles. "It gets a little dicey on some of the narrow streets, especially the one way streets with on street parking. The good news is that most obstacles can be either driven over or around."

    oh HELL no

    That's a pretty misleading headline. How about something more closely related to the facts of the story. "Man sent to psych ward, has guns seized after handing gun to wife, telling her to "just shoot me".
  4. Then do that job better. Or at least do more than complain.
  5. Those guys carry a huge caseload and can't possibly check on every detail of every probationer. Try doing as much as they do with as little resources as they have and see if you would be so quick to judge.
  6. Please see my comment. Before you spin out of control thinking the police department is corrupt, know that this statement was baseless
  7. I'm just going to put a halt to this bulls#*& right now. This statement is COMPLETELY FALSE. The DuBois City police department immediately referred the matter to State Police upon receipt of the information. The department did this because of the existing conflict of interest which would potentially taint the investigation and successful prosecution. The department took the appropriate steps to handle the matter professionally, and it is still being dragged through the mud by baseless accusations.
  8. Local PD doesn’t have the responsibility to enforce anything other than the business closures.
  9. Please quote your source. I understand that the death rate of the flu is .1% vs 1.4% in Covid19. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.livescience.com/amp/new-coronavirus-compare-with-flu.html I don’t agree with posting things that may cause people to disregard the state of emergency
