Anyone who doesn't think that Gettysburg has a very serious homeless problem had better think again. Here's the proof:

I'm glad that there are actually some good people in Gettysburg!

With the local denial apologists that congregate here, and the street gang issues, Gettysburg looks bad.

Most of these homeless people have troubling issues or have fallen on hard times. But there are some who take advantage and belong to the criminal element. Surely the street gangs know about the shelter and gang members use the place as a flophouse.

The fact that there is a shelter does not indicate there is a "serious" problem. What the shelter means is that the community is helping our less fortunate. I am sure if you were here, you would be helped.

Using your logic, since we have several banks and credit unions, everyone in the area is wealthy and needs some place to put their money.

First, there is no gang problem in Gettysburg. Do we have some gangs in the community? Possibly so, but there is no great evidence of the that I have seen.

Second, nobody local voted for or against the casino, the decision was made by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. I for one strongly believe that had it been up to a local vote there would be a casino open and operating by now.

You are correct, the fact that we have banks and credit unions does not mean the town is wealthy. Also, the fact that we have car dealerships does not mean everyone purchases a new car every year. We have many fine eating establishments in the area, but that does not mean that everyone eats out every meal.

The fact that we have a homeless shelter, does not mean we have large homeless PROBLEM. It means that the community is doing something to address the homeless ISSUE. Something that some communities are not doing.

I actually remember those 2 gentleman from my days volunteering at the local soup kitchen back some time in the 90's. I'm not sure if they ever panhandled or not, or even if they are both still alive but they were definitely townies. Wayne looked to be in his 70's with very bad scoliosis or something that kept him hunched over all of the time. He also wore a winter coat during the summer months and could often be found hanging out on the steps of the library. Joe was just a real dirty dude with glasses and very greasy black hair.
Gettysburg, like any community does have its “characters” but other than the “professional” panhandlers that I see regularly during the summer in the vicinity of Walmart, I haven’t noticed any.

Just because someone does not dress in a manner that is pleasing to you does not mean they are destitute, or a panhandler. As a matter of fact there was a gentleman in Gettysburg years ago, who you never saw wearing a suit and tie who was in the 70s worth several million dollars. It was rumored that this individual did not have a shirt or pair of trousers that didn’t have holes in them.

Often times the Adams County shelter takes overflow from Philadelphia and Baltimore.[QUOTE]

Ummmm.....no they don't.

[QUOTE who="Jerry Stereano]<quoted text>
Some of these people are basically criminals and cause all sorts of problems at the shelter, robbing other residents and committing crimes during the day when they are made to leave the shelter.
In return for a roof over their head and meals they are obligated to work at the recycling business located at the shelter facility during the day. They are not turned out to roam the streets.

If you're begging for a job, there are new opportunities in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas. I know the casino is hiring as well as the new busineses located in the adjacent mall

I have seen them on the streets, mostly the alleys where the gangs lurk and sell drugs in open-air markets.
I don't blame them, that shelter sounds like a forced labor camp. What a sick bunch of sadistic people you are in Gettysburg. Using homeless people like that. Vulnerable, desperate hungry people are being lured in and made to work like mules all day just for a meal and a cot.
You people deserve everything you get street gang-wise...
Nothing forced about it. If they are unable or unwilling to follow the rules of the shelter they are free to move on.

Not just unfriendly, but downright dangerous due to the absolute lawlessness of the street gangs. I read an FBI DEA ATF report on biker gangs and it clearly stated that they were in Adams County, Gettysburg was specifically mentioned. The notion that there are no gangs in Gettysburg is laughable.

That's not even mentioning the MS-13, Latin Kings and Nuestra Familia gang members who call Gettysburg home, each has a set in Gettysburg, who knows who else is actively gangbanging in Gettysburg.

we forgot to mention Gettysburg also has Gangnam Style. According to the "reports" Gettysburg also has Triads, Yakuza, The lollipop gang, hole in the wall gang, sugarhill gang and the worst of them all Kool and the Gang. Watch out for that Kool. He's a cold hearted SOB and runs Gettysburg with an iron fist. I know some of you are going to ask me to point you in the direction of these "reports". No can do, the government beams them directly into my brain. I've been trying to download them to my computer and create a pdf but for some reason it just doesn't work. I've plugged the darned USB cable into every one of my "ports" but none of them seem to work and I now have hemorrhoids
