Gettysburg Street Gang Linked to Allentown

Allentown may have its share of problems, but Gettysburg is quickly becoming the biggest cesspool of violent gang crime on the East Coast.
Newspapers, police and victims have all commented about the Gettysburg gang crime epidemic on the public record.
It is so bad there that a man was stalked down and SET ON FIRE as part of a gang initiation ritual. They had to cancel Halloween because of the threats made against children.
Murders, rapes, robberies, muggings, you name it, it happens in Gettysburg. It is a sick sick town.
The Gettysburg locals blame Allentown and York for the gang members. They say that Allentown can't control it's own problems and that it is to blame for the violent crime spree.

Gettysburg has to control it's own problems. Blaming it on Allentown seems a little "far fetched" to me considering you have Reading, Lancaster, York, and Harrisburg (all crime ridden arguable worse then what we see here in Allentown) in closer proximity. I have researched Gettysburg and have not seen any evidence of high crime statistics. Matter of fact in most categories they are considerably lower then the country and Pennsylvania's average. I don't think you know what your talking about. Just because you have a few "gang" related incidents, as you say, doesn't mean it is a bad place. Good luck though.
