The crimes are getting worse n worse everyday,w/people having lost their jobs and w/the holidays just around the corner.Its a shame people react this way just to get something under their tree. While the true meaning has nothing to do w/ money.Does anyone know the true meaning anymore? Jesus died for our sins and we must rejoice in it.Have faith.

Notice how none of these thefts ever include diapers, formula, winter clothes, or food (except the pizza things, but those were just spur of the moment and a free snack so they could keep 'working' into the night)

Remember to sell your cloak and buy a sword (prefer one of the 12 ga varieties) if you do not have one yet...

Let's hope that this store had surveilance cameras inside and outside of the store. I guess more stores need panic buttons to alert the police. Maybe stores should have iron bars that separate customers from employees. Armed guards? Merry Christmas.

Hey Hilltown Twp. Police hear is an idea. Get off of Rt. 309 and start driving around looking for real crime. Not the DUI's some of your officers are well know for.

With the ecomony tanking and easy access to the wealthier suburbs, I think we can expect criminal activity to increase.

yeah, well in our side of town, the block with all the colored people in it has all the gunshots, im not racist, nor do i condone those who are... im just saying - this neiborhood is like one from maniac mcgee and the street seperates the whites from the other races - yet the cops are always showing up across the street. But heres the real wrench in the gear for all you racists... it's not black or whatever, it's the damn section 8 they allow in our town that ruins the community. People who rent section 8 <houses not apartments> get paid 50-100% more then they would get normally for that property. I dont know how much extra they get for apartments but i do know it's a little more.

More people need to be armed- and not charged when protecting themselves and putting down a scum crook.

At the 1st sign of trouble - shoot to kill.

The men can't be bothered with those mundane items.

They get their women to "hook" for those,.. provided they care at all.

I only refer to 'THOSE PEOPLE' as cancer. They destroy everything they touch. everything they touch, & everywhere they go, they destroy. Now we elected one to the most powerful office in the world. Where do you think that leaves the States! Scary, man!

Might work as long as they don't use their brand of batteries to power the things.

Years ago while driving my motorbike to work, Hilltown cops arrested me on my motorbike because a superbike had eluded their capture- probably for going over the speed limit or just plain existing. That cost me 7 grand. Hilltown cops are useless and I would luv to kick their ass. They are useless to the people of the community.
