Yes...the high crime rates throughout PA and many other states are attributed to a certain culture or population.

The RT 222 Corrider initiative regarding gangs, drugs and guns is only one example of this seere problem. These characters are extremely uneducated yet very mobile....nomatter which gang is involved. We have black Berks County gang members involved in murder of Schuykill County dealer and Reading latino gangs with ties to Lebanon and Lancaster. While they attempt to reign in these groups, the crimes and violence continue. Allentown, Bethlehem, Lancaster, Lebanon, Harrisburg, York, etc all inolved. While we are sleeping, they are travelling doing their drugs and guns and violence.

Truckloads of drugs entering PA as reported in news.

Also, in our schools, they are very active, dealing to other students as they sell on consignment for others to sell in each neighborhood.

Sad state of affairs....taking over our parks, playgrounds, streets, schools, blocks, communities...

Law enforcement is doing an admirable job...thanks.

just so everyone knows we are all immigrants including the white. the first civilization in America were the Indians Christopher Columbus came and took the land away from them and now they are subject to live in small settlements.

And for every one's comfort the American Flag was raised before the Puerto Rican Flag.I don't know where the idea came from that the Puerto Rican flag was raised first.

I think we all need to educate ourselves in other people's culture before we begin saying things that make no sense and racist, and offensive to others. God has created all of us to be equal individuals regardless of sex or race.

May God bless everyone and their families.

I have no issue with pride in culture. My gripe is this, if you left a country to come here to have a better life, why do you then bring along all those things you left behind? and repeat those actions here? And expect those of us born here to put up with all the noise, loud music and loud conversation, expecting English speaking Americans to learn Spanish when English is the language spoken here..Did not people leave one country and assimilate themselves into this country landing at Ellis Island? If anyone wants to come to America fine, then assimilate into OUR culture. None of us want to be forced to assimilate into another culture, that's why we still live here. This our culture, and we are proud of being American. Thank you for coming here and adding to the mix, but our culture is the main ingredient.

I have lived in Allentown for all of my relatively short life (I'm 31, hence "relatively short"). My parents have owned their home in center city for 29 years. I have seen, first hand, how my hometown has gone to hell. It wasn't Heaven as a child, but it sure was better than what it has become. I now rent a home near 9th street. My landlord is fabulous, my house is a beautiful old victorian home with gorgeous woodwork and stained glass. Despite the fact that I adore my house itself, I am actively looking for a new home outside of the city. My neighborhood gets worse by the month. Every time some ghetto family trashes yet another house and skips out in the middle of the night, someone worse moves in. I am fed up with the trash being left on my steps, my car (that I'm making monthly payments on) being hit and purposefully being damaged, unsupervised children screaming at ALL hours of the night, and the music. Oh, dear god, the music.
All i want to do is go to work during the day and then come home to relax. It's all but impossible when the pounding bass from the many houses having their daily fiestas can be felt throughout my house. I've tried to get to know my neighbors. I help them when they need it. I offer a GENUINE smile and a "Hello" when I pass them on their porches... It has gotten me NOWHERE. Am I racist? Perhaps, but if I am, it is because I, too, am a product of my environment, and when I am confronted DAILY with my hispanic neighbors and their multiple children doing everything in their power to damage to things that I work DAMN hard for, I take issue with it. Do I think that ALL hispanics are lazy, welfare cheats whose "job" consists of drinking on their porches, destroying the property of others, and breeding? No. But the one's in my neighborhood perpetuate that stereotype on a daily basis.
If this upsets any of my hispanic neighbors, GOOD. You SHOULD be outraged! Your entire culture is being disgraced by a large group of people who lack REAL pride in themselves, their homes, and their culture. Be angry. Show them that it is NOT ok to raise your children to throw their middle fingers with one hand, while holding out the other, expecting it to be filled with CONSTANT handouts by those who actually work for a living. Let them know that it ISN'T ok to be the stereotype.
Maybe one day, my feelings towards my neighbors will change...... I pray that it does. I hate feeling so negatively about an entire race of people. I was brought up to treat everyone with the same respect and dignity. Here's to hoping.....

Poor Janet. In the unlikely event that you can even locate Puerto Rico on a map, perhaps you can explain where, and how you would recommend a "fence".

In the meantime, I'd guess you could find multiple volunteers to build one around your house.
