I believe that it is only stupid people that need to stop reproducing and the really stupid people need to be spayed or neutered.

Let them try this to me...they'll be in for a rude awakening!
My wife and I both do, that story could have had a tragic ending for one of those young men had it been a legally armed citizen they confronted.

These perps and all potential perps should be trhying to think past their next drug fix and consider what it would be like when some armed citizen shoots them but not dead, only in a wheelchair for life or some similar outcome. There are many armed good people who are waiting for their chance to make criminals need a wheelchair in hell.
As far as crime goes, Hanover is not such a bad place. I feel safe walking through town at night, alleys included. The police do their jobs and i have faith they'll deal with the rest of the attempted robbers cited in this article.

What really scares me though are all of my good vigilante neighbors like les who are just waiting for that once in a lifetime opportunity to fire the shot that "puts a criminal in a wheelchair in hell".

I saw their pics and they look like three lazy bums to me who are looking for the easy road way of life. Too bad they didn't target the wrong person who would have knocked alittle sense into them!
Where did you see their pictures at?

Not long ago a crime was committed not far that spot by a few Mexicans and this site had about 50 racist comments. How come nobody comments about race when it's committed by us whites?
it won`t be long before ole hanover is turned into a ghetto. La Raza will see to it.(check out their track record) these taxpayer funded thugs are professional ghetto engineers. has property values ever increased when section 8 housing is created?

Message to these thugs and others like them, Hanove is not Baltimore, York or Harrisburg and a lot of honest citizens are carrying legal weapons on them at all times so be VERY CAREFUL who you decide looks like and easy mark you might get a very big surprise. As for those who think guns are a problem you will find out how big a problem they are when the honest citizens lose thier right to carry like in Baltimore and then only the crimals are carrying

Bravo to Hanover Police. This was a little to close to for comfort. My home was only a few steps away from where this was taken place on York Street. I to do have protection and if they come into my home it's not my gun they need to worry about. It's my 120 lb. german sheppherd. Who is trained to attack.

You are a curious sort. Punks don't pull much when police are close and they are not close most of the time. I think I give some future perps something to think about that might deter them from making bad choices that could end their life or disable them. I think you give perps hope and encouragement. You will be more than surprised to learn who all is carrying concealed weapons around here.

The dude should have been armed, to many of my friends and family died for his right to protect himself. The least he could do is flex one of the rights they died for.
