     The city of East Chicago spends about 70% of its budget on public safety. And yet we read in this newspaper about Kumstar purchasing twenty-nine “machine guns” from East Chicago Police Department. Mr. Kumstar was quoted from testimony that he gave in the U.S. Federal Court about “Gun Dealer” from “back East” who purchased some weaponry from “Kumstar”. 
     It’s almost an given that a lot of people know Kumstar, and how he already plead guilty to stealing and selling machine guns and assorted weaponry. My question (preguntar) is, how do you “quietly purchase” twenty-nine “machine guns” from East Chicago Police Department.
     This is a direct quote from Kumstar in The Times own newspaper, mister. This is what I want to ask Dave Capp, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Indiana. The key figure here is that 70% of the city budget for East Chicago goes toward public safety.
