Do you read the paper or watch the news lady? PPD is busy with shootings, stabbings, busting "large scale" drug dealers with about $10 worth of marijuana, or guys shoveling drive ways for 1 pain pill. You want an advice, buy a gun. Pittsfield is a s_hithole.

Not from around here, are you? Maybe in your town the police force worries about the citizens. Not here. All they worry about is ducking as much work as possible while sucking the taxpayers dry. The Chief of Police is part of this mindset. So don't hold your breath waiting for any kind of help or reassurance from the Pittsfield Police Department. It will never arrive.

"Wonderful community" HAHAHAHA! I'm sorry, but this poor person must have moved here from the poorest, most violent Third World country on Earth in order to actually believe Pittsfield is a wonderful community. There are about 10-15 decent people in the whole damn city; the rest are nothing but drug dealers, murderers, rapists and God knows what else. Sir, if you have any sense of self-preservation at all, you'll rethink your move and get out while you still can.

Hey Rose, So glad you chose this bucolic, rustic location to live and attend the theater.

If you are unhappy with police presence on north street, when as you say there were not many people around, perhaps you should hire your own body guard. Or stay home, get the DVD of the play and consider that just because you moved here, from some more uncomfortable local, we sort of figure you can make it from the play to your car without getting killed.

Of course, if you dress like a lama, a rabbit, a bear or a deer, you may consider carrying some heat. It's just a simple thing: if you find the reality of the real world intimidating--- stay home.

Beutiful Pittsfield you said it all. In an almost surrealistic way. the sad part is it truly Pittsfield. The best part is our elected/appointed officials, and their hobbies.

Pittsfield is a corrupt crime infested city under Mayor Ruberto and "Chief" Michael Wynn. And, when did "Chief" Wynn become "Chief"? Last I heard he was "acting" "chief" and as far as I'm concerned he was dishonorable as "acting" chief. But, of course, that would make sense that Ruberto would give him the official title of "Chief Of Police." Ruberto's "rewards for dishonorable conduct program."

Ruberto is unethical, sort of. well, maybe there a chance for a more decisive decision. has Ruberto fired the public works employees involved in the vandalism of municipal vehicles? has he taken legal action against these public works vandals? what is going on with this?

And Pittsfield's officially unethical dirty guilty repeat offender mayor has gotten much worse. Ruberto has taken care of Ruberto and his friends. Even on a saturday in beautiful downtown Pittsfield it looks like a ghost town. But if you do venture into downtown Pittsfield, take care not to over entend the parking time limits. Because the dirty mayor employees an alleged drunken metermaid cop wannabee accused of a hit and run. And it's official, there are cops using/selling illegal drugs.

So come May when the cops are celebrating the dead cops will they also be celebrating the cops using/selling illegal drugs? Or is that cause for celebration everyday?
