Drive by shootings in the Poconos??? What is going on here? Did crime rates really drop in NYC, or did Rudy and the gang just push them into PA and New Jersey? I think this says it all.

New York parents moved their kids to the Poconos to get away from the gangs. They didn't realize that their kids are the gangs.

A shooting in PCP? What a shocker! As a gated community maybe they shoudl have the guards check the criminals as they leave instead of vice versa. It would certainly be a service to the rest of us.

These things happen for a reason. Very rarely does this happen to plain old folks????

Random shootings are extremely rare.

That development has cheap vacation homes and modulars thats why the mongrels live there. Those places went for about $25,000 to $40,000. I know someone who lives down the road and can't stand look'in over there.

Somebody owes their drug dealer money and hasn't paid. Consider this you last and final collection notice. Either pay your money or start selling for us.

Gotta love the way these Pocono rednecks immediately blame it all on "NY people".
Admit it, it was a bunch of the locals a little too high on home-grown just whoopin" it up!
Probably some local teens testing their marksmenship for their NRA gun safety course.
Just another day in paradise!

This place is and always will be a dump. I cant help but ask myself where the private armed community security was when this happened. If I were ever desperate enough to live there I would be pretty mad that those guys are gettin paid to do nothing. And people say private communities are supposed to be safe.

Hmmmm--missing armed security guards, 30 rounds fired into a house, nobody saw nuttin'.

Gosh, we can't fire the security guys, not now that we have this crime spree happening. Golly, get them better equipment and more overtime!

It's a new version of "the butler did it."

Love these Poconos.

You could be right about that. Pocono rednecks don't know how to reload.
