<quoted text> My sources ( crime statistics for Gettysburg Pa) show that the level of crime overall in Gettysburg is about the same or less than the Pennsylvania or national average. The chief of police never made that statement.
There were over 200 serious violent crimes reported in Gettysburg during the last year of statistics. I assume many more that didn't get reported. Let's see, 220/365=approximately 2/3. I have no reason to make this up, nor does the police chief.

Looks like you're eating crow. Better than the sandwiches usually served in Gettysburg! LOL, j/k bud!

In other news water is wet. The statistics show Gettysburg to be as safe or safer than the state of Pennsylvania and safer than the national average. The only thing your statement proves is that Gettysburg is not crime free. Duh.

The thing is that personal opinions and speculations mean jack. The statistics relay the facts. Gettysburg is not crime free, but compared to the crime rate of other cities, the state of Pennsylvania and the nation it is safer than average

Checked the UCR crime stats.In Gettysburg, burglary, theft and other property crimes are FAR above the national average. Violent crimes like robberies too. And from year to year, more murders per capita in Gettysburg than most major cities.

FAR above the national average. I don't know where some of you are getting your stats. 1965?

You must remember, these homers have their lives invested in Gettysburg. They're yokel morons. 75% obesity rate. Sickeningly fat hicks and hillbilly dummies with beards. And that's just the women.
You're right about the property crimes in Gettysburg. It's out of control. The newspaper did say there have been "a slew of burglaries in Gettysburg." Watch these stupid farmhands try to explain that away.
A SLEW OF BURGLARIES. Sickening. Disgusting. Gettysburg.
LOL, I saw the article where it said 75% of Gettysburg residents were obese. They should switch to lowfat Gettysburg Sausages! LOL!!

One only has to actually go to the UCR reports to see that you are wrong.

Nobody cares what you think, you're a dumb hick. Do the forum a favor and off yourself.
Gettysburg has twice as much crime as the average town in this country. There's no debating that fact, it's printed in the crime reports.

Hey man, whatever keeps you from killing yourself.
Rational people know what a SLEW of burglaries means and they would never try to make it mean anything else. It means there have been TONS. An INORDINATE amount. MANY MANY MANY burglaries. TOO MANY TO COUNT.
Face facts, dude, your town has some serious problems. Why does this bother you so much? Because your pathetic life is invested in this toilet of a borough.
Dude, I realize this is your playground but really, a couple of clicks is all it takes to realize you're FOS.

Was there violence or children involved? This is the rape, violent, serious crime thread. Not sure coke possession and a parole violation qualifies, but, if it's all ya got it's all ya got.

Alert the media! There's an ex-convict living in Adams County! I'll even go on record as saying there's more than one. A few clicks to view the crime statistics for the Gettysburg area and you would put this statement in proper perspective. But, hey dude, it's your playground, say what you want. Just don't get your panties in a wad when you get called on it.

You must be referring to Wendy. Although, she doesn't post anymore she is still a vital part of the Adams county system.

She got her education behind bars and is now a paraprofessional.

So that's one x convict in Gettysburg, would anyone like to name any others?

Editor's Note: Homefacts lists 23 sex offenders, not 24. Of course none of what's posted there matters. Did you happen to read the disclaimer right under the sex offender list? No? It reads as follows, "*No representation is made that the person listed here is currently on the state's offenders registry. All names presented here were gathered at a past date. Some persons listed might no longer be registered offenders and others might have been added. Some addresses or other data might no longer be current. Owners of Homefacts.com assume no responsibility (and expressly disclaim responsibility) for updating this site to keep information current or to ensure the accuracy or completeness of any posted information. Accordingly, you should confirm the accuracy and completeness of all posted information before making any decision related to any data presented on this site."

My guess is that they put that at the bottom because their list is in fact.....wrong. I took their advice and went to "confirm the accuracy and completeness" of their information. A quick trip over to the PA Megan's Law website run by the Pennsylvania State Police will give you accurate information. If you do a municipality search for Gettysburg you will get a list of 11 registered sex offenders. If you extrapolate that out it falls almost right at the national average for sex offenders per 10,000 people.

The Gettysburg Crime Discussions obviously bother you. Maybe you should take a break for a while? Have a Gettysburg Sausage. Wash it down with a near-body temperature Gettysburg Lemonade.
