Do not judge just the stats. For example, the Walmarts on the East and West side both add a ton of theft entries to the list that are solely concentrated at that store's location.

There are several calls a day to both Walmarts. If you remove just those two stores it changes the stats for those areas.

On the other hand it is well known that the City's police log is missing half of what is being reported. So while the Townships are slightly elevated because of theft at the retail shops, the City numbers are artificially low.

Not only is this city dangerous, but things have been getting much, much worse. It pains me to witness it and this is not how any city in America is supposed to be. When are they going to be honest about the situation? Maybe then we can discuss what they intend to do about it.

And both WalMarts are patronized by the inner city scum. RabbitTransit ensures that they are transported to and from these places. Im all for building a fence around the City and then let these parasites feed off of each other.

i would never live in the city because of the black and hispanic scum that infest it. until they are no longer the majority that live there, the crime situation will continue and get worse. lawmakers need to make some changes, and quick. for example, make welfare only available for a certain amount of time (2 years?),and then cut it off. also drug test welfare recipients. put in place better laws instituting harsher prison sentences for violent and repeat offenders, and actually enforce deporting illegal aliens.

Just look a thte numbers I posted for teh violent crimes and the burglaries and assaults.
I din't post the theft stats because I knew the ones in Springettsbury and West Man would be higher do to the Wal Mart and other shopping areas.
The city isn't safe just compare the number of murders in York compared to Lancaster and Harisburg.

The city of York is nothing but a sewer, period. I live in West Manchester township, right across from Richland Ave. Been here 3 years and the the blacks, ricans, and mexican are moving this way. Get the heck out off dodge before you are robbed, killes, raped, or forced to kill to defend yourself. Bracey is an idiot that has no clue, along with along with the moron that is Chief op Police. Racisl profiling rocks people.

Teach them a trade on the public's dime? Didn't they have and squander that opportunity once or twice already when they decided they were too cool for school and dropped out or just didn't pay attention and simply fail? Are we suppose to take care of THEIR (not there) family while the taxpayers fork over more money to teach them a trade? Let them sweep floors and work their way up like a lot of people did and some still do.

When u give something to those who don't work for it, they never take advantage of it's value. These parasites who live off of the worker and give nothing back to society are what is killing that City. Laziness results into nothing good. If i offended anybody here......well, so what! Drop dead!
