why waste time with a vigil? Standing around with candles isn't going to bring them back nor will it change anything.
Make yourselves useful and start crime watches etc.

I go on a peaceful relaxing cruise without reading about the news back here and I return to see that someone gets shot and killed? What is happening in this town? Where is all this evil and devilish behavior coming from?

Looks like its going to be a long, hot summer for poor Gettysburg. Why ever let things get to this point? Maybe more police are needed, a federal grant to recruit and hire some jarheads freshly back from the war and take back the streets.

I don't know if this woman's homicide was gang related, but if it looks like a duck... What other type of person shoots into a moving vehicle like that with no good reason? That person and a gang member are one in the same as far as I'm concerned.

Police should go into these known gang and drug areas and sweep the streets clean of these criminals. Sadly, the criminals often bribe local officials and protect themselves with a veneer of legitimacy, like donating money to charities and things like that.
