Always the card, and you're guaranteed an anti-immigration rant on a story about Agnes' prize-winning posies too, guaranteed.
Whatta bunch!

I've got business associates who once lived in Aurora... one of them was the victim of a murder. His family moved out to Fort Collins to get away from the violence.
I've got other business associates who have moved their businesses out of Aurora because of robberies and other incidents that convinced them it was not the place to run a business.
It's sad, but most of Aurora is a indeed a ghetto haven. Everyone who lives in the Denver metro area knows that this is one of the areas to avoid. Facts are facts...

I have lived in Aurora for almost 15 years, never been robbed, neither have any of my neighbors, never had any of my neighbors been a victim of murder, domestic violence, etc. I have always felt safe where I have lived, and I have lived all over Aurora...so I am guessing your family/friends lived or own businesses are in the 80011 and 80012 zips? That is NORTH Aurora, closest to Denver where most of the crime happens.

They can't. They wouldn't be able to address any subject brought up on these forums because it is the only thing they know. What makes it worst is that they are "subject matter experts" on a flawed, obsolete philosophy.

That only applies south of 120th Avenue where the real estate values are much lower and the homes are older... places north and east of 120th and Washington are a lot more respectable. The area called Hunters Glenn and east of there is very nice all the way to Holly and just east of Holly and around Horizon High School. Lots of new homes up there, many selling in the high $200's to mid $300's. The average household income level is around $80,000,(I know this because I own a small business in that area and have done some market research). Thornton has some very diverse communities just like any other large suburban city. Look at Aurora, for example. Most of that area is crap, but there are exceptions such as Chenango (sp). The people who live there are very affluent and homes sell for a million and up.

I guess my only question is, how the heck can a household of $80K afford a $300K home?????

Guess that's why all the foreclosures.

So when are you leaving because you did not read the story! It was a MALFUNCTIONING lock! Also they said the music was still on like any other day! You need to go back and reread the story!

Kudo's to the honest folks in Northglenn. Colorado is beautiful with it's wide open spaces and the mountains. If anyone can point out a single place in the USA that is free of crime or prejudice call The Enquirer right away, or take another look around you ... a good look. Ummm...I've walked into a store that was open for business while the sign said they were closed.

This could happen any where. I have work security patrol for a number of years. I have found doors open to offices, storage areas for doctors with drugs open, and I have even found a car lot office open with all the keys up on the board nice and labeled! I could have had a new car if I had wanted! 90% of security work is catching such things. I have even almost been hit in the head by a magnetic lock falling from a door frame! Equipment does malfunction and so does human error!

All Locks and Lights are on a scheduled timer that someone neglected to put the holiday date in so the system unlocked the doors and turned on the lights automatically as normal...you'd be surprised at how many office buildings go unlocked on holidays due to this!!

I may be wrong but I think the point was that the employees failed to do their job by securing the building. Not many would like it if they entrusted their property to someone who merely walked away from it-leaving the lights and music on and not locking up. Or if they could not do so to contact a manager and wait for them to protect the property-in short doing their job responsibly.

For what it is worth, I have lived in Aurora for over 40 yrs and have never been robbed.
I have known plenty of people in Aurora in that 40+ yrs and none of them have been murdered.
I ran a business in Aurora for 6 yrs quite succesfully.
Aurora is no better or worse than other cities and I do not live in a ghetto.
How nice that you had time to poll EVERYONE in the Denver metro to try and back up your opinion about Aurora.
Opinions are opinions....
