  1. Holy smokes. Things are getting really weird around here. Maybe we should put up some kind of security there. What about racial profiling. I dont know. Picking through pockets in mikveh is a new low.

  2. A ritual bath used for religious purposes. Very different from the tubs we have in every house and certainly unlike the baths used by ancient cultures.

  3. See that! A black man was in the mikva and nobody called police until he started going through pockets! So I think this brings out mr finks point very much.

  4. the mikva has cameras recording 24/7
    #1 if pd can handel it there is no need for lcsw .let lcsw catch other crooks and lcsw isnt armed with a gun or mace either

  5. # 1 always puts in so were was lcsw because he has something against them he probably got kicked out or something but when they do respond to something notice he doesn’t make one comment, makes you think. Anyways lcsw is called just as pd gets calls not any of the two just magically show up
