Lindenhurst Crime Wave, Are you being affected?

There are 62 comments on the story from Jul 9, 2008, titled Lindenhurst Crime Wave, Are you being affected?. In it, reports that:

Lindenhurst Gazette
Since school has let out in Lindenhurst a large number of petty crimes have been reported ranging from mischief to vandalism.

Bicycles have been stolen out of sheds and garages, gas has been siphoned out of gas tanks, Barbecues have gone missing, vehicles have been vandalized as well as property being vandalized and a lot of petty crimes being committed. It's certainly a lot wilder this year than it has been in the past when school lets out. Some have noticed an increase in teen drinking and drug use and are wondering when the Village and Police are going to beef up patrols.

One family South of Montauk has had to call the Police several times over the past few weeks due to some very wild teens. One man also South of Montauk also had his fence kicked in while another had her lights stolen off of her fence.

It's time to take a stand. Call the Police for any incident and let the village officials know we want more patrols in our neighborhoods. Ask the Village to have a Night-Out-Against Crime and Invite SCPD to Speak and Listen to our complaints.

I wouldn't worry about the minorities. They haven't brought the drug problems or crime into Long Island. They want to live in peace with their families like everyone else.
Fear is jumping through the communities because drugs and crime have entered all the communities in Long Island poor,middle class and upperclass.
You should be barking at the politicians not each other.
