Has anyone driven by that section of Mauch Chunk Street where that pool hall is? All I ever see is scum hanging out there, it's like the old Ellwood apts. on Sch ave. but on a smaller scale. I wonder why the chief in Tamaqua doesn't get with code enforcement or LCB and shut them down. They sell drugs, beer, food and all kinds of things out of there. It seems everytime I go buy that Calvin guy has new "relatives" visiting. I always hear about or see fights there. That Calvin must really be scum to let all those degenerates hang out there, he knows they're criminals, they sell drugs right in front of him and he turns his head. Good thing the Tamaqua cops got the one guy selling drugs out of there, heard he's doin 2-5. It's ashame Tamaqua was nice years ago till that type of scum moved in.

Don't forget Tiki and Freddy's flanking the place. They allow that crap to go on in those establishments as well. If you give a damn about this town, stay away from those places. The more you frequent those establishments, the more you allow these holes to thrive and give these drug dealers/users safe haven.

The chief and the code officer don't need to go anywhere. It looks like some people have way too much time on their hands.

Druggies. They will always be somewhere sucking the filth off the ground. Doesn't matter where.

You're blaiming the behavior of people on a businessman and the cheif of police. Shame on you for belittling functioning people based on the poor personal descions of others. The two are unrelated. Sadly, you're the kind of person who would pull those down around you to make yourself feel better.

Got a chip on your shoulder over someone owning a business and someone being chief of police? Big baby. Go cry to mama.

I encourage you to visit these establishments before making these generalizations. The description provided is spot on. These owners do nothing to discourage these types of people from visiting thier businesses because they are the only ones who would go there. You won`t find any respectable member of our town in any one of these dives, or even walking down that filthy skid row of a street! If you harbor criminals, you are one yourself.
As for the police, they turn a blind eye to the goings on there because that`s where all of thier snitches are, just like they want it. They could walk into any one of these places at any time and have a field day!

Obama2009...you are as clueless as the man himself. You have either never visited these establisments or you are one of the people who do "business" in there. No jealousy here. I wouldn't want to be associated with any of the denizens that frequent those places.

However if I was part of this towns law enforcement, I would be on these places like white on rice. It would solve a lot of problems in this town, and maybe help out these business owners a bit in the process.

I've been to this bar and every bar in town and then some. There will always be bad people somewhere doing something. You can't stop that. You can't blame that on functioning people. That is too easy.

You guys fail to see the bigger picture. It's not a matter of being able to recognize illegal behavior. If that were the case, they'd be able to arrest and jail 70% of the population of every city's ghetto.

I encourage you to become an officer of the law....better yet, nothing is stopping you from being a proactive citizen on patrol either, in which you can then call the police upon observing illegal activity. This will open your eyes when you see that nothing will have changed 2 years from now. Some other bar will open and have risky patrons. And the people will complain that the police aren't doing their job in the future as well. But that's too much work, you'd rather blame it on functioning people in society.

Hey not sure if you noticed it or not but their is a crew of illegals renovating the Elwood these days so more section 8s can move in and BBQ on the street. I know the Pine Street charged more for drinks when they revamped a few years ago to keep the riff raff down at the Tiki and such and it worked pretty good so maybe that could be done. Course across the street from there I notice a group of illegals packin a small suv to go to work -wouldn`t want to judge but when you see them wait for you to clear the light before the last guy jumps in the trunk with a pillow real quick it`s kinda made clear. However at least they`re workin for me so I don`t have to anymore cause I`m a lazy american. Got to love it!

Yes I agree with all of u. The cops in this town
don't do a thing, they are the most useless bunch
of wanna be cops around. They are so corrupt it
turns my stomach. Never a police log from Tamaqua
anymore, they used to put a monthly report in the
paper on how much money was made on citations, meter
tickets, etc. now we don't even get that! Why the
big secret? To many filling their pockets, thats why.
I guess Tamaqua is just a crime free town, the best
place in the world to live. Mattson get a job that
you might know what you're doing, you sure as hell
are doing a shitty job playing Chief of Police.

At least he doesn't have a name with bum and oh in it, using your logic, you must be one big Ahole and when asked where to put it you just say Oh in the Bum, hope ya lubed up Oh Bum. And by the way, "biggest disgrace since civilization", doesn't even make sense, come on go back and try for that GED.

It is true, so much scum, low life is in our town of
Tamaqua, and all other towns. But Tamaqua is crime
free & drug free. Just read the papers, nothing in
at all about all the sh-- that goes on in Tamaqua,
all the arrests, stabbings, vehicle break ins, it is
all heard on the scanner, nothing ever in the paper,
Why so called Chief Mattson, what are u trying to
hide? You & half the wanna be cops that are on the
force couldn't catch a cold, let alone criminals.
Are they afraid? Or maybe they are druggies with the
druggies, so much crooked crap going on in this town
it's ashame. Why doesn't the Mayor step in? HA HA!!
Time to clean house-get rid of all corrupt cops!
