The two men fled in a blue four-door car with tinted windows, police said. Both are considered armed and dangerous.

    Hey,
    I’ve got a question for you:

    What happened to all the moonshiners, and bootleggers, and gangsters, after prohibition was repealed?
    And, all the associated violence?

    Vote YES on Prop 19.

    Thumb this up if you like it.
