  1. I have NEVER seen anyone ever come or go from this house. Ever. Why has it taken this long for someone to nose around that house and see what was going on right in the middle of down town mint hill. When I was a kid, that town seemed like it was a better place than mayberry to grow up… Come on MHPD… You got a budget and equipment. Lets work on keeping the place cleaned up before things like this happen.

  2. Hey, “You’re Kidding me”: do you understand that what you just posted basically means that the police would have to be clairvoyant in order to stop this???? Clairvoyant means psychic in case that word is too big for you. Have you also heard of the concept of civil rights? Officers cannot just bust up into a house without a reason to do so….how can they look into something without keeping that persons civil rights as a priority??? All I can say is I’m glad that you are not a cop, “You’re Kidding me”.

  3. You’re Kidding Me, you have the right to remain silent. That should cut down on the air pollution in the area.
