  1. Good Leo’s,

    Why ban me? I give my real name, address, phone number and email address. My posts are law enforcement subject-matter and factual — over Murder One by one of the thin blue line. No one has warned me of any violation. Before banning, isn’t it only fair to warn about the conduct you find offensive? Given any warning, I would have complied. So, could you let me know what is offensive and I’ll cease and desist. But, please, banning free speech on Leo is a crime, figuratively, of course.
