I specifically moved to Columbia b/c I thought it was a great place for kids, etc., but now I see the light. It is sooo ghetto. I know some people who live off of Columbia Road and their cars are constantly trying to be broken into. Constantly. It is not as safe as we thought.

It looks like LOGICAL THINKING is possibly a police officer and a bit sensitive. Someone snitched on the guy that shot him, the police didn't solve that. Although they'd like to take the credit for it. Was it your assignment to find crime on topix.com ?
Haha that was so funny.

i am a teen in columbia ii dont belive that columbia has gotten that bad i mean sure we had a little cime but its like 3 killing in a year thats nothing compared to other places like the city. you try moving to differnt parts of maryland and find a better place for the most part columbia still anit bad. there only minor problems ex: young kid hanging out in the neightbor hoods all times of night and thats because we dont have anything else to do maybe if the county builed an rec center for the teens who dont have anything to do then they minor crime wouldnt happen!

I agree with Logical Thinking. More residence of Columbia and other places should stand up and not hide behind closed doors and curtains and just complain to each others. Go outside and form marches and yell out loud that you and your fellow neighbors are not going to let what you have as a good community go down by gangs, drugs, crimminals and the like. The louder you shout the more you'll be heard by the gangs, drug dealers, etc. and the police too. Bring on Fear is what these negative elements take pride in and thrive on. Now stand up and be heard and let the fear become theirs and not your's.

Wilde Lake, you say teens don't have anything else to do and maybe a rec. center would help. Ok when the rec. center closes for the day or teens get bored with it what then ? See there is but so much teens can do late evenings. Perhaps read, study, play xbox, watch tv then go to sleep so they can get up and go to school the next day and learn something that will perhaps help them be future productive members of society. But now days that may be too much to ask of our young people. Heaven help us !

section 8 housing has and will continue to ruin Columbia, especially Wilde Lake.
The choice is simple, dramatically reduce section 8 housing in Wilde Lake (and Harpers Choice) or write off the whole thing and give up.
If section 8 is the proplem to not ruining Columbia then it's is the property managers who is to point the finger at and not section 8. Any tenant; section 8 or not; should be warned and or evicted if they are found to be causing problems of ANY kind. This type of action taken by the property managers would help. Those who feel the need as it seems to cause problems wouldn't if they know they will actually be put out on the street. Where I live now that's exactly what management will do and it shows because you could hear a mouse pass gas if there were mice around. And yes; there are section 8 residence here, quite afew actually and no problems. Thumbs up for good property management.
