A delay of the red bus service was reported to the PSD? You've got to be kidding me. Maybe I should call in how a horde of people this morning tried to squeeze into the bus at the church stop instead of using their legs and feet for once and walk those 5 minutes.

Anyway, I think it is coming to the point that safety personal should be permanently installed at Eastwood. The robberies of delivery folks is a little concerning. Is the PSD really able to keep us safe?

maybe if you treated the PSD like law enforcement and not security guards they will do their job a little better. personally if i was working there i wouldnt give 2 shits about the residents.
