Plan before party night out

Hello people: I want you to read this with seriousness.

Re: Taylor Van Diest murder.

Hello people: I want you to read this with seriousness. I want to let people know I will not let this murderer haunt my town (Armstrong). This guy does not have any power over smart young adults. I’ve decided to make everyone more aware of what we can do.

There must be a few rules to be followed and this is for the safety of everyone. I don’t want this to happen to anyone ever again. There’s a reason why, back in the good old days, the parents wanted their children home before dark because bad things do happen at night. Do we need more evidence to be convinced otherwise?

So what are the rules?

Well they are pretty simple really starting with always having a plan when you go out to party.

1. Never walk alone

2. Call or crash

3. Take a cab.

Please, someone help me out with this. I really want to make a difference. Lets gather up community support to please pass this on.

Jake Goertzen,
