What happened on German St. Last night? Seems like a domestic dispute. Any word on who was involved?

Where was it on West German? Don't ya just love it when something comes on the news like that, and then there's NO followup!! It looked like a two story white house that was set off by itself. WKTV only showed it for a second. Kurt Meyers started with arson and then it led to other things. Obviously, that was an extreme situation. Why does the HPD even release the story to the media with NO followup, and get the public hyped up. OH, that's right, we're living in Herkimer!! LOL

it's incidents like this that cause independent experts to rank Herkimer the 5th most dangerous town in New York State!

But yet we all know it's a safe village. None of us are fearful someone mugging us, assaulting us, or breaking into our house or apartment. This guy was a relative. It's the handful of messed up families who give Herkimer a bad reputation.

A "safe village" does not have the rash of heroin arrests that Herkimer has, most of which do not make the paper.

If you think there's no chance that a desperate heroin junkie mugs you while you're out on shopping on Main St or patronizing the many nice downtown restaurants and bars -- THINK AGAIN!

It's a relatively safe town. OF COURSE there are assaults, breakins, rapes etc....You should be alert and use common sense. Do you REALLY think you and your family are IMMUNE from such crimes? That is indeed dangerous complacency.

I didn't say we were immune. I said Herkimer is not a dangerous village. That doesn't mean bad things never happen. When's the last time anyone you know was mugged? As long as you don't put yourself in a stupid position you're fine. But that's everywhere in the world. An unsafe rating should mean you will get either mugged, stabbed, assaulted, carjacked, robbed, raped, broken into, or even killed when you unbarricade yourself from your house or apartment. When's the last time this happened in Herkimer to anyone you know? And having it done by your own relatives and acquaintances doesn't count. That means you have a fck'd up life, not a dangerous town. Herkimer is a very safe village for a normal person.

My My aren't we judgemental. LOL Obviously, we're not living in the Bronx, but it never hurts to lock your doors and keep your eyes open. BTW if someone becomes a victim of a crime violent or otherwise, even if it's in a small town, it doesn't mean they somehow brought it on. That's blaming the victim, and a GROSS over generalization. Do you know how rampant childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence is in this area. I was a certified investigator. I saw the underbelly of a lot of our little towns in this area. It's not the victim's fault if they are assaulted in their home or in the Walmart parking lot. Your air of superiority belies your ignorance.

Apparently the incident in Ilion started as a domestic call. Every law enforcement personnel knows that responding to these calls can be volatile and very dangerous. Too bad the guy saw it as his only way out, but at least he didn't take anyone else with him! I agree with you,anytime any type of arson is involved, it spells desperation and potential tragedy,if not in the present, then a possible predictor of future problems.
