Elkhart police, fire departments OK merit boards; will name appointees in January

Windbigler, Ed

ELKHART — Since starting out investigating juvenile crime 30 years ago, Elkhart Police Chief Ed Windbigler has seen firsthand what the cycle of abuse can do to families.

He's witnessed countless examples of people who were abused as a child going on to abuse their own kids. One homicide sticks out in his mind, a case where a man threw his stepson down the stairs because the toddler couldn't say a word correctly.

Society is being attacked. Want to look at what is now available to children as far as sexual and violent dystopian content on the TV? Care to listen to engineered Gangsta rap that all races of kids are into? Care to look around at the destroyed peers that a good kid has to deal with? A program here and there aint keepin up with unchallenged engineered social destruction from on high. Keep tryin though. We all appreciate it.
