Posted in the Gettysburg Forum
#1 Sep 19, 2013
Please add to this list every time a serious crime is reported involving someone from Gettysburg or the vicinity or happens in Gettysburg or the vicinity. I realize that this thread is going be busy, but people have the right to know about all of the crime going on in Gettysburg, and they deserve a one-stop place to read it.
I'll get started, but I won't go too far back, I think there is a 4096 character limit to posts here.

Now for the quiz. You can select one questions and answer it, or try to answer all four.
A. Identify where I have started more than one thread based on one article.
B. Can you identify those that are true articles from any paper any place.
C. Can you identify those threads I started that have no reference to any article, just something I made up.
D. Can you identify which, if any articles refer to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; Gettysburg, South Dakota or those about Gettysburg, Ohio.
Bonus question. From all of the above references, can you find the one that does not have a post by me, within the first three.
Special extra Credit, can you find the thread where I have not had any post removed.

A Gettysburg Man was charged with 4 counts of gunpoint armed robbery.
Gettysburg disgusts me. I hope this worthless town burns to the ground.
#5 Sep 29, 2013
Yeah, that's right. I replied to my own post without changing names.
#6 Sep 29, 2013
This one is all Davenport. Reap it

Would someone tell me of the community that hasn't experienced one of these crimes in the past five years. And please identify for me one of these incidents, and remember there are really only about five, that hasn't happened in another community in the last five years.

You should worry about the problems your own town is having instead of just trying to change the subject.
#10 Sep 30, 2013
It appears to me out town doesn't have the kind of problems you are making out. You have to go to communities 30 miles away and all the way to Florida to find the name Gettysburg involved with a crime.
Maybe you should look at your town instead of worrying about the quite peaceful town of Gettysburg.
But then maybe you are afraid to leave your house in your community, so you stay in and make up issues with Gettysburg.
#11 Sep 30, 2013
Have you been asleep for the last few years? Read the first post in this thread. It lists many serious crime that recently happened in Gettysburg.
Are you saying the articles are inaccurate? Please point out which ones, because I take the word of a news journalist over yours any day.
#12 Sep 30, 2013
I just read the actual newspaper articles for all of the crimes in Gettysburg, and I have to say I am very shocked that some of these incidents happened, they were terrible criminal acts. I read a man was set on fire and about the murder of a young woman. There were multiple cases of child abuse most of it sexual in nature. Multiple armed robberies of people and businesses. Stabbings and a mugging, a murderer on the loose caught, a law enforcement officer murdered n the line of duty, a law enforcement officer who stole nearly $100,000, burglaries, etc.
I also read the article where the police said that crime was on the increase and they were having trouble keeping up with it and that it was gang related.
How can anyone claim Gettysbyrg is peaceful? If they do say so it means their head is in the sand.
#13 Sep 30, 2013
Your comments betray you m'lady. Did you check the dates on those articles? How could you have read a story that's so old it's been removed from the web and archived as many of those you claim to have read were many moons ago. You are correct though in asserting that if you read 5 years worth of crime articles, and allow yourself to be hoodwinked into thinking they are all recent, it would appear to be a lot
#14 Sep 30, 2013
From Google and from web crawlers. Most, if not all newspaper articles from major newspapers are mirrored of scanned and put online for research purposes. Again, have you been asleep for the last decade? And why do you care so much to respond as if I was talking to you, Josephus? You aren't posting under multiple names, are you?
And most of those crimes are within the last year and a half. Get your glasses checked. Anyone can see that things are getting worse in Gettysburg. Sorry if that doesn't suit you.

You're trying too hard to fool no one. Davenport from Philly is sufficiently dispatched and here comes ole Ruthy posting anonymously to pick up his banner? Just bring back Davenport. It's easier.
#16 Sep 30, 2013
You figured me out. I am Davenport. Was it really that easy?
#18 Sep 30, 2013
Didn't you say that the recent crimes didn't happen or were exaggerated???
20 some odd news articles prove you wrong.
As if anyone thought you were right, one simply has to read the newspapers and see what's happening with Gettysburg.
It's sad that you have to resort to copying my name, you have no argument.

Well, Ruth Davenport-Gratman, let's take a closer look at what you mentioned in your original post because I know you like the bait and switch. You touched on all your highlights. A homicide from 8/12, one of 2 in Gettysburg in 20+ years. The hiker that no one in law enforcement or the DA believes was the victim of a crime was 7/12. And oh how you loved to talk about the elderly woman who had her purse snatched in Ruby Tuesday's parking lot. That was 5/12. Let's touch on the article you site where the police chief of CUMBERLAND Twp references gangs. That's more than 4 years old. Show me a recent article that mentions gangs and GETTYSBURG. Even the articles you bumped are dated 11/12 12/12 3/13 4/13.... All 6 or more months old. Tell me what another one Ruthie

And I think it is worthy of note that the Cumberland Township police chief only said that there as been an increase in gang activity. He never mentioned gang related crime in his statement. I don't believe I have seen any news article as long as I have lived here with any mention of an increase in crime.
I think for any town Gettysburg is extremely safe for the average person, but not a good place for criminals.
And when you think that our law enforcement staff is based on a population of about 8,000 yet when college is in session the population is around 12,000 and in the summer probably a conservative 20,000 at any given time.
#21 Oct 2, 2013
Sounds like the police aren't able to handle the crime problem, gangs or no gangs. I've read the articles too. And I've seen people who I would label gang members hanging out in certain parts of Gettysburg. Not all over, but they are there. And if they aren't gang members then they are bad people up to no good for sure. A guy I work with used to buy drugs in Gettysburg during his lunch break and on his way home, he was a serious crackhead.
#22 Oct 2, 2013
Nobody ever said there is no crime in the area. But is it not as bad as you all are trying to make it out to be. Gettysburg has people, anyplace there are people there is crime.
I would imagine co-worker could by drugs in Gettysburg. Regretfully if you know were to look today, you can buy drugs in almost any community.
I doubt those were real gang members you saw, or think you saw.
And I do believe the police have things under control as much as can be expected in any community. Once again, yes there is crime here, but it is not out of control, and Gettysburg is still one of the safest communities I know of.
But thank you for you input under another name Davenport.

Only about five? Where'd you learn to count?
Oh yeah... Gettysburg! What a stupid hick moron you are. Read the newspapers or ask a sophisticated tourist from a bigger city read them to you, you clown.
