    ADI it would be really nice to get the rest of the meat of these stories If your going to report them a lil more imformation on the people and Why she did this whére it occured With out more details how and why this story isnt any different then others that occur daily in Az
    Most of these type headlines are fueled by drugs And it would be more usefull to alllow citizens know the damage drugs do
    Crime have risen around the State of Az due to drug use
    Report on all of them please

  2. Is their a reason the woman was called out as a “Navajo” woman? Do we say an Irish woman/man? Italian woman/man? Were not even allowed to call out a “black woman/man” even when it’s obvious. I just don’t see the importance in calling out the race. The crime is bad enough. “Woman guilty of busting boyfriends head with piece of rebar.
