  1. It never fails to amaze me that they close the entire interstate flow to investigate a car accident. All other places I’ve lived they just move the wreckage to the side, and let the cars go. Close a lane or two, but not the whole road!

    1. Yep, accident investigators show up, take their pictures, and then drag that stuff to the shoulder. El Paso is the only place I’ve lived that refuses to do what every other city does… keep traffic flowing.

  2. 2:30 am speeding, swerving in and out of traffic. When will people learn they are not bullet proof. This child has not only killed herself but she has destroyed her Parents and Family futures also

          1. Was there from 11:55 to 12: 25. Went home and put up groceries then returned there until 1:15. No show either time. Stood in front of main entrance wearing my agency three letter logo. Ray Charles could have seen it.

    1. Showtime at the Appollo He didn’t, and I went there twice. The only way alberto’s charlie variant will do anything is in a drive by or an ambush.

      1. I almost went though. Would’ve been nice to actually meet you. This town is so short on America first Patriots. Unfortunately I’m on the other side of the mountain.
