Wellsville Police record 5,000th homicide this year. What is being done to stop this?
Another day, another couple dozen homicides in Wellsville. It’s no wonder the city is known as “Hellsville” after all, because there is no other place in America where so many violent crimes are so common place. As the city continues to burn to the ground on a seemingly minute by minute basis, it begs the question: where are the city’s protectors?
“The Police Enforcers are out in full force, as they always are. There are ten million citizens in this city, but there are only 40,000 Police Enforcers. We can’t be everywhere at once, and our main task is to stop the rampant gang violence that plagues the city.” – Wellsville Police Enforcer Commissioner, Luke Harret
A comforting thought in these tragic times, that the police simply cannot be everyone at once. When pressed further, Commissioner Harret didn’t seem to have a real answer for just what the Enforcers were doing on a day to day basis to stem the tide of the violence.
“Overall, the crime rate is on the decline. Non-gang related violent crime is down, rapes and assaults are at a three-year low. The Enforcers are doing the job that wasn’t being done before, and it’s going to take some time to make real accomplishments.” – Wellsville Police Enforcer Commissioner, Luke Harret
Speaking of the job not done before, something else that was not done before was the massive human rights violations that are now occurring under the Police Enforcers that was not present under the original Wellsville Police Department.
Police Enforcers: are they worth dying for?
As we all remember, the Wellsville Police Department was dissolved two years ago and was replaced by the Wellsville Police Enforcers.
What’s the difference? Well, for one the Police Enforcers are given authority and powers that are banned by many international treaties and rights. The Mayor said she had to create this powerful organization with sweeping authority due to how incredibly outrageous the crime rate had gotten.
The question that many people are asking is are the Police Enforcers worth having when they violate the rights and lives of everyone they come across, all in the name of “protecting and serving” the public?
“How the hell is this right, man? These Enforcers [expletive] broke down our apartment door looking for those “Riderz” who shot Paul and his son! How the hell do they commit another crime searching for a criminal?! That [expletive] is criminal!” – Carl Brich, Wellsville citizen
As gang violence continues to rise, the real heroes in this story are the Detectives of the Wellsville Police Enforcers. Of course the story is really a nightmare, and the heroes seem no different than the villains most times.
The murder of Paul Hornsteen, and his 12-year-old son, Karl, were some of the latest tragedies in the violent crime wave. Unfortunately for them, they were literally yesterday’s news, and in a city where there is literally a murder every hour, the victims themselves become a blur and a haze amid the torrent of bodies that line the blood-filled streets on a daily basis.
The Wellsville Daily Call caught up with one detective who was working the case of the Hornsteen murder, but he didn’t seem too eager to speak to us.
“It’s hell out here, that much is obvious. There’re two dozen murders a day in the city, and there’s just no feasible way that we can keep up. I’m sorry to the victims, but I know those words run hollow to the pain they feel. I wish we were doing more.”- Detective Wyatt Addair, Wellsville Police Enforcers
We wish there was more that you could do, too, Detective Addair. In the meantime, citizens of Wellsville, make sure you stop by the GrabMart on 4th street on your way home from school or work. They are selling bulletproof vests and protective gear at half price through Saturday, that is if you can make it there alive before some gang-banger puts a few dozen bullets into your back.
