Dear fellow tax hikers, Colerain Township has made the Drudge Report with their latest in high-tech crime fighting. Colerain Police arrested a man for posting a facebook photo of himself, his 1 year-old child, and a BB gun - all in one photograph. This dangerous criminal was hauled to the downtown jail and held without bond.
Thank goodness the police were there when they were needed. Otherwise this 1 year-old child might have overpowered his father, stolen the car, and used this Assault BB gun to shoot up Northgate Mall.
The timing could not be more perfect. As we reported last week, Colerain Township is seeking a new property tax increase to raise more money for their police department. What could better demonstrate the urgency for this tax hike than learning that the police are arresting people for taking photographs with their kid and a BB gun?
Without higher taxes, the Colerain Police might not have the resources to solve vicious crimes like these. Without higher taxes, they might have to focus their efforts on other things. We applaud the Colerain Police Department for their fantastic work in quickly solving this terrible crime. We hope this incident reminds everyone of the need for another property tax increase so the police can continue
