(We at Uptown Update held off on uploading these for a few days in order to post them near the dates of the events. The timing is unfortunately close to the shooting on Leland. This is not a case of the police having bad priorities, simply that of Uptown Update -- or the Leland shooters -- having very bad timing.)
