Chicken-Fried News: Stop the “violence” 

(Madeline Hancock)
  • Madeline Hancock

Residents of Edmond have thrown open their windows and are hollering, “We’re as mad as hell, and we’re not going to take this anymore!” out of them. Unlike the classic film Network, in which lead character Howard Beale gets wound up (and melts down) during a news broadcast, Edmondites are furious after a rash of car burglaries in a neighborhood.

The crime spree has widened to at least two home burglaries, as well.

“We’re really at a point of now of no tolerance,” HOA President Clay Trotter told KOCO. “Whether that be adding gates to the neighborhood, putting in security cameras or actually hiring armed patrol.”

But before taking guns into the streets, neighborhood residents formed a watch committee to step up security and, as KOCO reported, “stop the violence.”
