originally they said it was a 'store owner'. Now I don't see that. It is (I think) right near the windmill bar.

That would be Bruce Avenue. I think it was a couple of blocks into 'startford'.
I'm wondering if it was the owner of the windmill bar, or what.

It is up a little from Bruce, I was walking my dog and they stopped me for an interview, I looked like an idiot. But honestly the neighborhood is horrible, the people who live here really just do not care. The ones that do are out numbered by the ones who think it is a good thing to be raising your children to run around like criminals. It's really sad. I wish my neighbors would come together, stop thinking it is cool to sell drugs, and rob their neighbors, start trying to make their homes nice and make this a nicer place to raise a family. I wish my house would just sell.

The only way for citizens of startford to stand a chance is to CONSTANTLY call the police department and the narcotics unit. Stratford is VERY close to becoming Bridgeport-like ( in the crime way) and unless the citizens wake up and DEMAND that their police force do something about it.

The "average" cop in startford does not do anything PROCTIVE. They sit and talk with their fellow cops waiting to called for the overtime assignment to be called in. We pay their salaries and should DEMAND action.

Halk of the people are sitting in their police cars on their phones, sleeping , or watching DVD's. And we just put up with it.....

I know the area around the windmill bar and I have to agree, there are many section 8 families there and they are nothing but a scourge. If good people band together they can turn it around. I don't agree that Stratford cops are lame, though. Ask ANY black person from Bridgeport and they will express a fear of Stratford cops.

It's already too late for the public schools in Stratford, so good families will tend to move out. Brown people are ruining this country- sorry folks, thats the truth. I'm not racist if I don't see them as inferior. Its their culture that is the problem. Their culture and generational dysfunction.

Race should not be the cause, There are skeevy white people here in this neighborhood too. I call the cops constantly, there is always something happening here, I don't know how I am ever going to sell this house I own over here. I might just have to eventually rent it, and go move to Bethel. We bought this house a long time ago, because we worked hard, and saved, and home ownership was our dream. We bought this house because we figured we could get our foot in the ground, a starter home, sell it in a few years and do better. 8 years later we are stuck, in a house that is worth so much less than we bought it for, in a neighborhood that just gets worse and worse. Part of me just wants to leave the house, take the family and run away too. But then I remember how hard we worked for our dream and can't. If anyone is interested in maybe a neighborhood watch, who lives here, not sure where to start or what it would do but maybe it would be a start. Maybe it would at least raise property value a little so those of us who want out can sell and run.

ah gah you linked it hah.. but yea it's a shame, I really hope the guy recovers. I sometimes think about that show where they re design the neighborhoods, and the yards. curb appeal, neighborhood or something, if people here even attempted to care maybe we could apply for that show haha. at least it would look nicer. those of us who want it to be could pretend

Seriously. No woman should have to live near black males, not even black women. Pavement apes are rude, violent, and disgusting.
