<quoted text> Well instead of complaining about it here start calling the police more often. If your neighborhood is that bad then talk to the people in your community... all of you can call with your concerns. Or better yet just get a bunch of you together and go down to the police station and talk to someone. Think about a neighborhood watch program. The vast majority of law enforcment is doing their best. They are overwhelmed... if this kind of crime is going on in your neighborhood imagine how tough the officers jobs are!! No offense intended but you have to stop complaining and do something about it. Express concerns to your local law enforcment and talk to your neighbors... simply fight back!!
I did call the police. they said they dont come out and give reports for minor things . like having your window broke and car robbed. I pay taxes and cant get the law to even write a report. my neighbors have not learned english yet. they are not gonna help me they are too lazy to work or learn english. they only know how to get free food and welfare.

<quoted text>actually mr.america thats a good idea..what about us out here in "the country"??
If you define out here in the country i can probably help you. No need to give your home area... just an idea... i live on the outskirts of Atown... sort of the fringe of the ghetto warzone. And if live out country you are lucky... the gehtto people won't come near you... if they get spooked they can't even run through the woods... its out of their element!!

To clarify... if your coming from lehighton up 209 you make a right turn on 93... go up the big hill and take a left to hit the range... keep traveling and you'll hit the road to Weatherly on the right????

Wow... it sure is a small world. We still hike, camp and hunt on broad mountain. There are some incredible spots up there. For the past three years we have been taking a fire road back off 93 just past the range entrance and camping back there. I am still sad that we can't drive the railroad track road past the police station in Weatherly though!! They put up new no trespassing signs and i was told they are enforcing it. For years we used to come down the big hill into Weatherly and make a right over the black creeek, right into the police station parking lot and drive the track road way down following black creek. There was a wooden railroad bridge you cross and then to the right was an awesome trail heading up the mountain. We spent so many good times up on the top of Broad!! And if you keep following the tracks to the Black creek and Lehigh river junction and then head down river (lehigh) towards Jim Thorpe there was a well hidden trail leading up to a waterfall. We hiked in and camped there a few times as well. brutal hike with camping gear on your back but so worth it!! Funny how we always managed to load up with beer as well... we had some intoxicating experiences at that waterfall.. lol!! Don't get me wrong we love where we camp now but i do miss driving down the creek road and camping up on top of the mountain in that area. Thats where i know Broad the best!! I do hope they take the no tres. signs down someday :-)

OMG! I remember the Black Creek(we used to call it the black crick) My uncle was the Post master for Weatherly post office for as long as I remember, I spent many of summers in Weatherly with my cousins.

Then when I got older we used to climb Broad Mountain and camp out. We met some really great people up there. I wonder if you were one of them. Wouldn't that be a small world! I didn't have to carry anything heavy though as I am a girl.LOL! That's back when men still treated girls like they're supposed to be treated. I still have the same friends-the guys are like brothers to me. I learned how to make a "campfire" up there. I could go on and on...Oh the memories!

Rex 84 sounds scary...if infact it is true. Right now we have to deal with urban unrest and terrorists. The scum destroying our cities and robbing the american tax payers with their ability to breed like rabbits. Mexicans and P.R's are sucking the life out of this country.

You better watch out "ghetto folk." Someone just might be armed when you go after them. That sounded like a threat you posted on here. people are tired of your ghetto crap and the American people are taking up arms to protect ourselves. We get our guns legally-so next time you want to "jack" somebody up-better think twice. You just might be staring down the barrell of a nice legal gun.

PS-This forum is not here to make threats at people.Maybe we should turn you in and get you off of here.If you have something intelligent to say(which I doubt)go for it. If not-don't threaten anyone on here. That is not the purpose of this. Take your ghetto talk out on the streets-not here..........

HAHAHAHA. security camera's, that's what Reading thinks is going to stop the crime and killing? I have a some swamp land to sell, so maybe the same nutcases who wasted taxpayer money on the cameras will want to buy that from me. Allentown has cameras mounted all over the place and guess what, the city is no less crime free than it was before the cameras. Face it, our cities are filled with thugs that need to be removed from the public forever. There are plenty of black hole type jails where these thugs can be thrown into and have the cell door locked forever. No light, 3 meals a day, one shower a week ( a firehose hitting them), no tv, no radio, no print media, no exercise, nothing other then 24 hours in their cell. That's how you solve crime, rather than letting the animals run the zoo as we are at this point in time.

All you people are blind. Why do I as a tax paying citizen need to have a camera in my face every dam second. We are always prying into everybody else's business. Dont let the rotten apples ruin it for everybody else.
