Lovely town. Just lovely.

Yep. And a low income housing project about to open across the street from Scobies - where drunken fights are pretty regular already. Plus, everyone begging for a nightclub down the street. Say goodbye to Mayberry!

Can you get a little more description from the police regarding this "group of women" I'd like to avoid them if I saw them coming.
