so, there is nothing we can do till someone gets killed?
Just stick our heads in the sand an ignore the problem?
I allways thought the word nieghborhood meant that it was a safe place where nieghbor's look out for each other and thier surronding community.
I guess i was wrong i mean look how good ignoring problems has worked for our country so far!
I would never suggest just ignoring the problem. Take a drive down Sycamore or Broadway one day and see what happens when too many people ignore the problems and run to the suburbs, like Lancaster for instance. Your situation is proof that the problems will follow eventually. By all means do be involved in your neighborhood, but you have to do this within the realm of what is actually possible. You can't have someone run out of the neighborhood simply because you find their lifestyle disagreeable. Have you tried talking to these people(nicely) and asking them to tone down the noise? If you think crimes are being committed, you need to be willing to be a credible witness and give the police probable cause to arrest someone or at least search their house.

Now I know my ISP says N ton but Im in Clarence and even here its not the same anymore. Fix the problem dont sweep it under the floor!
Lets see if I remember right a man trying to shoot his wife until it was called in. Odd thing is people on the street pulled out lawn chairs to watch. Never on the news but my brother lives on the street and another family member is police called to the shooting. Lancaster doesnt call the news and tries hard to keep stories out of the news. Many officers there work on that so the area doesnt get affected by bad pub. So does Clarence. My brother said about 6 years ago I appoligize for the time frame.

All of the towns try to keep these things quiet. The towns that are still growing like Clarence and Lancaster have a lot invested in their image and they sell the notion that they are so much better than the older towns and of course the city. No one is disputing they beat the pants off of the city for most people, but when you look at the hard statistics (crime, school test scores, etc)compared to the older towns you find there is not really much difference. Of course they trumpet the small differences that do exist and convince people that it makes sense to pay 20% more for a house to get schools that are maybe 3-4% better.

Yes, I agree that all the towns keep it quiet. Tonawanda, Sheridan Parkside area...the gangs are in there ..infested. The Bloods and the Cripes are there. A town cop I know had stories of gang fights and disturbances in that area. Kenmore Ave Proj as well. I couldn't believe the stuff he was telling me. My first reaction was why wasn't this on the 11 0'clock rpt? or in the NEWS? Keeping it quiet is the modus operandi of all locales...
