Let me say this about the crime, this is what happens when no one stands up to the criminal element. Everyone is full of arguments but no one has any answers. The focus should be put on identifying the source of the recent scourge of crime, there must be a reason that an area like Gettysburg suddenly gets barraged by incident after incident of serious crimes.

I am angered that this has happened in my community as well, so I know how some folks just like to point fingers. We live 40 miles from a major city just about like Gettysburg and things used to be OK for the most part, but when the housing bubble burst, places fell into disrepair and bad people moved in. I can't say that is the case in Gettysburg, but maybe it's a place to start??

When there has been no problem, what are you to stand up to? Gettysburg has had two incidents in a month. The community is now aware of this, and I am sure people will be keeping a closer eye on things. Incident after incident is hardly a fair description of things. Two incidents in less than a month is something to be concerned about, I will agree. But after over seven years of very little crime that is hardly a accurate description of things.

So your community is also having some problems is it? So this is not exclusively a Gettysburg situation?

Many communities are experiencing an increase in crime. What are the reasons? Gosh I canít put my finger on it, but there are many theories. Many people out of work, leading them to crime? Foreclosures and people being put out of their homes and now living on the streets? Some people just preferring a life of crime rather than doing honest work.

And could it also be that many of our movies and TV shows want to glorify criminals and make the youth feel that it is an acceptable thing to do?

What about the gunshot murderers/arsonists that have been lying in your midst for over 30 years?
