How about the Police start driving around instead of double up on radar patrol for revenue.
Too many parked Police cars not enough touring.
Just think of how much money they are saving on gas and tire wear by not being out driving around all over town looking for criminals.

The ghetto trash has already stolen anything of value in their area, so they have to move on down the road a little.

That what happens when you live in the hood. Westerville is full of trash. Get a real job and move to Powell or Dublin. Everything else is ghetto. Fo Sho!

If people are dumb enough to sit in their car with the engine running for no good reason, they are dumb enough to leave it unlocked.

Rewrite the castle law to allow defending of your car with deadly force if someone is caught breaking into it. Yes it's harsh and mean, but thieves show time and time again that they have no shred of remorse for the people they steal from so why should the victims show them any remorse? I say make everyone caught stealing get two choices on sentencing day in court. Short sleeve or long sleeve.

You give a pathetic example. If your sitting in your back yard and you see someone breaking into your house you cant just shoot them. THIS story is about car break ins, not car jackings. Next time read the story.

I think the key here is to keep the people who live south of Schrock Road where they are. That's where the losers, White-Trash, and ghetto people live. Keep them south of Schrock and we'll all be safe north of that road. But let them creep up, and see what happens.
I live South of Shrock Rd in a neighborhood where we do not see these problems because we look out for each other and it seems to keep the criminals away. I would bet that you are not any better than half of the people that live outside of Westerville city limits. My children go to Westerville Schools and we are very productive in our community. The commits on here really show how ignorant people are. Loser!!

Dittos on schrock rd. it's the new DMZ, marking the uncivilized and the white flight crowd. In fact when I see bums panhandling at the polaris exit I call the cops. We don't want their kind around right John? Hope the WPD keep sending the trash back to columbus were it belongs. Wow I feel so racially superior today I wonder if it's something in the westerville water supply...LOL

They made it to dublin....my window was busted early Sunday morning in a neighborhood off the sawmill rd exit and they stole my iPhone, charger,$75 cash, diamond earring and my blood pressure medicine out of my car.
Fucking thieves should be thrown in jail for a mandatory 1 year for each $100 worth of damage and stolen property on vehicles.....
If the government strengthened the laws maybe it wouldn't get worse!

I agree we need harsher penalties! Right now they barely even get probation if caught! We need to start handing out not longer sentences for crime but harsher time. You do a crime that involves theft? Your jail sentence involves manual labor for your time served. If you perform a violent crime or use a weapon during a robbery then you get a mandatory 5 or 10 year sentence with hard labor and no chance of parole. There is no good behavior and 6 months of 3 hots and a cot.

No more tv. No more Internet. You want to better yourself in prison then you work doing manual labor m-f and then you take courses in prison on the weekends.

Stop making jail a mere inconvenience and start making it true hell and you'll see a drop in crime.
