Fuchs, They need to make every other county around them look bad, so it doesn’t make Saline county appear like the armpit of the state, which it is.

My understanding is it had something to do with what one guy posted on a site about the other and he found out who it was because of law enforcement connections. Are you paying attention to the news CYBS.
