you are wrong scranton isnt the only city in lackawanna county, carbondale is also apart of lackawanna county and we have had a murder and more,scranton just thinks about them selves like their the only city that lives in lackawanna county the reason theres no murders there is because ur criminals learn to come to the small towns where they think they will get away with it .. even though there are no murders , did u forget about the abuse to women n children , to me that is a crime or is that notgood enough ,.til they are murdered.... i am a citizen that live n a small town and has had plenty of friends that have been killed cold blood and the sad part is they were killed here n found months later between here and scranton ... and it hurts that these people can never ever have their souls set free due to the officers, and suits taking the stage for the findings of the bodies , saying they are sorry for the loss of these people , not realizing how the family and friends suffer for their loss... i kno cause i had 3 friends murdered and a family member murdered .. so to me it could be 2010 and still those yrs will never be forgotten , so congrades on your 2006 without a homicide cause to me its just another year with people being gone and having to be remembered and saying to yourself whos next.. i have twin boys and ya know i dont care how safe you feel , but just because 2006 has been free of homicides in scranton that doesnt make me safe in carbondale..... mainly this is for the memory of
FRANK WEST AND JAMES FERRANCE may they some day rest in piece
thank you

Joe, in the writers defense - the MAJORITY of people that live in Carbondale that were educated at the Carbondale Area schools cannot spell correctly. They cannot use proper grammar either.
This is not to put them down but a known fact.
For the record however, the writer is perfectly right in what she stated. There are murders in Carbondale that go unsolved. As far as the women and children that are 'hurt' there - it does go on and even when reported it is left uninvestigated.
