Oh dear. This couldn't come at a worse time, what with the gangs and crime that has inundated this once-proud borough.
Soon there will be cuts to the police departments, the gangs will jump all over this situation and get bolder. It's likely that he gangs will begin to bribe police officers (since the police budget will get slashed) and this will signal the end of any semblance of civilized society in Gettysburg.
I would advocate a state takeover of Gettysburg Borough, bring in the State Police and possibly Pa. National Guard troops. Declare bankruptcy for the borough and let a trustee or commission run the borough until the hellish gang and financial nightmare is over.
Where is your proof of gangs? You have none. Stop fibbing. By the way moron, READ THE ARTICLE. It said MIGHT be 2016. Not today, not tomarrow, not next year. 2016. Stop cherry picking stuff to fit your stupid B.S. agenda.

You have to provide the proof of your LIES. He who gives the accusation is the one who has to provide the evidence. In many cases current up to date evidence. Not correlating one article every ten years and lying by saying it just happened. PROVIDE REAL PROOF. You can't, so stop with the false

BTW-you can't prove any of your baloney so you go after spelling...What a lying sack of dung moron you are...

Bottom line is that when the police budget gets cut, the gangs will completely take over Gettysburg.

The State Police and National Guard should be brought in to at least slow down the gangs.

It is very dangerous in Gettysburg.

Sofa Boy you have had many other post removed under several names. From what I can see it is because you go off topic, and want to attack people and not provide facts.

Show us your “proof” and let us discuss it and show where you are wrong in your claims.

Maybe you should contact Topix and ask why they removed them. Perhaps they were just found to be inappropriate for a public forum?

I wish he would, and I'd add that as he jumps hopefully there is a tractor trailer doing 75mph right behind him.

Mommy and Daddy must be very proud of you under all of your names for talk like that.

You can't prove your point so now you are once again just making statements to see your words in print.

SHOW YOUR PROOF SOFA BOY.

The same thing applies when you post under your other names

No matter how much you cry, the fact remains that Gettysburg is a has-been town that is sinking into the crapper due to the influx of gangsters and violent criminals.

Just read the news reports of the sick things that happen there on a REGULAR basis.

These locals are the stupidest bunch of sheep I have ever had the displeasure of meeting.

I had lunch at the Blue and Gay Bar a few months ago and after I threw up in the bathroom due to the rancid coleslaw, a jerk named Tom followed me to my car and told me never to come back, because "outsiders ain't welcome in Gettysburg."

I hope the gangs do take over the town, these cocky locals need to be taught a painful lesson.

Everything you said in this post is a lie, and you well know it. Please Sofa Boy, tell us why you have such a problem with this wonderful little town. Why so much hate for the town and the people here?

Please show us the proof you claim to have. I would enjoy the chance to review it and comment.

I read the article concerning the Gettysburg budget and the lone comment made by a local. Once again it shows the locals distaste for tourism. Tourism is all you've got, it's not going to change because of the history that predated any of you rolling onto the scene, so deal with it.

If you don't like the way things happen in Gettysburg then MOVE, just not here.

Gettysburg is filled with whiners, nasty, unhappy people, it no wonder tourism is dropping like a stone.

Maybe you should read both the article and the comment more carefully.

Apparently everyone doesn’t share your feelings and opinion. Here are two post I found on a facebook page that you may find interesting.
“We got to town last night. Had a terrible time getting through. Could not find a place to eat at 8 last night. Felt really bad as we drove 500 miles to get here, parked in the hospital parking and walked to Tommy's and could not get in the door!”
“Homecoming, Apple Harvest and other such events had the town very busy!!”

Think, Mid October, well past tourist season, and someone had trouble getting into a place to eat at 8 PM.

Guess a lot of people feel Gettysburg is a safe community to visit, and I didn’t see any reports in the paper, or on TV or radio today about any crime or gang activity over the weekend.

You need to work on your reading skills. Where in my previous post did I say twitter? FACEBOOK

Just do a search in facebook for places that talk about Gettysburg and I am sure you will find it.

And nothing in the newspapers, on the radio, or TV about any gang activities or violent crime in town this past weekend.

Show me an article that says otherwise.

maybe you should stop with the BS and deal with your community's issues. I forgot, its easier to complain about it on Topix, THEN complain when others' give their comments. Locals are like dogs chasing their own tails

What issues. Maybe you should come up with REAL proof instead of spreading lies for your own enjoyment.
