Can anyone explain how these two criminals had the stolen goods in their possesion after they were arrested if they weren't the ones that did the riobbery?? Geeez...vidoe, witnesses about the white Buick, and stolen goods intheir hands. Sounds pretty convincing to me. But I guess a lot of you out here..well--facst just don't matter.

Heck ZEZE...why is this a joke to be in the newspapers? Don't you think Dearborn citizens want to know what is happeneing in our neighborhoods? Yes, roberies occur all the time, but I want to know if it's happeneing close by! If not roberies, should rapes, assaults, murders, child molestations, embezzlements, not be reported either? Just what felonies do you feel are importatnt enough to know about? Maybe you would just rather read about Eminem, hear about the latest rap songs, what celebrity is cheating on their spouse, who is going to be on American Idol, etc. Well, read on ZEZE, but I want to hear about what is affecting my neighborhood, its safety factors, home values, and how secure my family is, or is not.
