I've been trying to make up my mind to move into the project up there. Well, after this episode happened I made up my mind. I'm moving in this weekend.

That's what happens when you live in Fitchburg. People who just recently bought homes in Fitchburg shouldn't be surprised. After all, that is why homes in Fitchburg are cheaper and less desirable than area towns.

Happened to hear the crime on the scanner. There were plenty of witnesses who actually saw what happened, and evidence left at the scene. The reporting just goes downhill all the time. How about getting some real facts instead of talking to someone who came outside after the fact because his wife heard a shot?

Normandy Road - what a surprise. I hate to even drive near there. The lowlife scumbags shoot at each other in broad daylight. Hopefully, they will exterminate each other and no decent human being gets caught in their crossfire.
"There were plenty of witnesses who actually saw what happened" How many of them were willing to give descriptions? I can probably guess.

It's like the wild west, people standing up in cars shooting from the moon roofs of their cars, they should make a movie about Fitchburg.

We should open some casinos. We already have the crime - why not get the revenue?

what an absolute disgrace Fitchburg has become it was a nice area at one point in the past century. The old days when the projects were occupied by veterans in which it was built for. now its the scum of every race white, black, p.r. etc etc etc I say just put bars around the hole complex and also meadowbrook

Let's talk animals. It doesn't matter how many police we have on the street, they cannot control these animals.

I lived there when it was a housing project for the veterans and it was actually nice and over 90% white at the time. Its a shame I wont even drive up into the projects now and its embarassing to admit to living there even though it was because my father had served his country. Maybe they should make it a little harder for these people to get into the housing projects but they let everyone in and they mostly all live with extra people working under the table and dealing drugs.

Say how come the $30,000 fence the City Council approved isn't working? The councilors Joseph and Starr thought the fence was going to stop all the drugs and thugs, wellll guess not, oh well off to the Boulder for another drink!

You know I grew up there my whole childhood. Moved out when I was 12 but we use to be able to play outside till 11:00PM and our parents never worried. Our parents could have cookouts and quiet partied with friends and no one bothered anyone. It is such a shame what has happened to Green Acres. I wouldn't even ride through there now. I think they should just get rid of the ones that cause the problems and do CORI checks before getting in there. Come on people you need to fight for a safe palce to live go to your main office and complain. DEMAND a new start in that place ....
