It is so sad how these days the bible speaks of us doing these hateful things to each other if we just obey GOD'S WORD, we would be able to defeat the enemy trying to take over our minds and bodies to do things that we know isnt right we would be better people. This world is madd we really have to pray for everyone in this because the law doesn't care for us or the ones working for the enemy. We have to stop making ourself a tool for the devil when our temple belongs to the lord. Amen Amen Amen.


they need to close the hide away down what more needs to happen there its more drugs out there then a little bit help bolton close it down asap


People think they know a lot about a place, not unless you purchased drugs from there how do you know there's a lot of drugs out there , I knew both of the guys , bad things happen it could of happened any where, and the last murder in Bolton was not ten years ago it was more like 6 years ago when a guy named Justin got killed at club Jimmys , but that was swept under the rug, because the whole town of Bolton town hall is corrupted if you wanna clean up Bolton clean the town hall up with there over taxation with this new sewer system, and getting a grant for Police, when we need EMT
