Obviously the no snitch gang policy is alive and well in Reading and Berks. Even innocent county residents are threatened with death if they reveal drug use and sales. What has become of the former quality of life in Berks County? Some in Berks are even extorted to particpate in the drug trade.

If the victim had talked about the perps, he would have automatically been murdered, Since he was already shot before, he is not the most popular person to begin with.

It seems that we have some serious gang problems in the area. Do these gang members rule the streets? Or do the authorities rule? Is it true that if one admits to gang affiliation, he gets more jail time?

Obviously in many circles, law and order are not
the norm. Is it true that we have 20 gangs within the county? For how many years has the city been ruled by these creatures? How did it get this bad?

While it may be that some Berks lawyers and a few judges may be corrupt by defending and supporting those involved in the drug trade and use, is that the reason for this horrendous upswing in the violence? Who is left to maintain order and civility?

Sure must be a lot of money in illegal drugs....

Anyone would be afraid to testify in court if their life was in danger. I dont know what we can do to keep witnesses safe, but the police and court systems better find a solution quickly!!
