Lets not be quick to blame the Daily for facts,Norwalk police are doing the best job they can in not admitting crime happens,its budget time and the game is on.Not only that but as in the last mayor bad PR is not what the city needs right now its election year for the State reps who would just forget about Norwalks troubles and pass out grant money as if it was candy for crap we don't need.

What
The police are fare from doing the best job that they can. The reason gangs are out of control in Norwalk is because the failure of the NPD, including Rilling were in denial about gangs for years.

How do you charge assault with no victim? Not saying these guys are innocent but we can't just go arresting people for assault based on hearsay.
