Listen guys, I've had my truck broken into twice in Gettysburg in the span of 12 years. One was my fault I left power tools visible on the floor and someone smashed the swing out window and stole about $1200 of equipment, lucky my shops insurance covered that but the other time I had my radio and airbag stolen along with CDs and change.
Someone broke in by jimmying the lock and also slashed the seats and urinated all over the seats and dashboard I had to replace the seats but because the truck sat out in the sun all day before I discovered it, I never could get the smell of urine out of it no matter what I tried. You basically couldn't run the air conditioning because it smelled like a subway platform. I couldn't understand how someone could be so cruel, my wife also had her tires slashed we think while her car was parked in her driveway.
So don't tell me there's not usually crime there, serious violent crime happens there and petty crimes happen there mine wasn't murder or anything but I lost a lot of money and my wife refused to ride in my truck, I had to buy her a car. If there are people willing to break into cars to feed their drug habit or whatever then the schools should spend more money identifying troubled kids to begin with, be a lite more proactive.
Ya, riggghhhtttt, sure. Proof is where? Only your word. OK, wanna buy a bridge dirt cheap? Sorry to spoil it for you if it really did happened, but that happens everywhere. Nice try though.

And this would never have happened if you had been in Hanover, York, Harrisburg, Wilmington, Ocean City or any other city?

Has anyone ever said Gettysburg is crime free? No they havenít others have said it here but I will say it one more time and maybe you will understand. Gettysburg has people, where there are people there is crime. Regretfully, that is how life is.

Please identify for me one town, just one town with no crime.

Crimes make the front page of the local news papers that arenít even mentioned in areas like Baltimore, Washington, or Philadelphia.

GETTYSBURG HAS NO GANG PROBLEMS, and our crime rate is far below the state and national averages.

Not to get more people complaining but if you read the tags in gettysburg you would know that the crips and ms13 are around. Just ask the kids and the people around that seen them. I feel bad for that girl considering I heard that the boyfreind who was the main target in the car who got into some problem with some other kid. I think if you guys what to keep fighting each other nothing will get done. If one side says there is a problem and the other says there isn't then the two sides should have no problem comming together and do something like a crime watch then.

Please help me out, Iím not as well educated as you obviously are on gang activity. I do want to protect myself, so please explain things to me so I can be on the look out.

What kind of tags are you talking about?

How can I identify these crips and ms13 tags?

What do they look like?

And may I ask how you know the boyfriend was the target, and that he has problems with others?

As to a crime watch, obviously you donít know Gettysburg very well do you.

I noticed a while back someone also mentioned the graffiti painted on walls in town. Can you tell me the locations so I can familiarize myself with these signs and maybe how I can tell what gang they belong to.

The guy who shot her turned himself in. He pulled the gun off of someone else and shot at the car no reason has been let out. I came from an area were ms13 and crips operated. i worked in a store that ms13 had a habit of tagging my store and the one across the street. I have seen none of their tags anywhere. If you have seen them in Gettysburg provide where, otherwise you are just spreading things like the others. I won't call you lier...yet. Provide proof.

You are living in a dreamworld. The gangs have already stuck their claws into Gettysburg. MS-13 ain't no joke, they'd eat you guys up and poop you out.
The mere fact that all these idiots are on here denying the crime wave proves that you all know it to be true.
I'm not going to waste time arguing with you, the POLICE CHIEF of a neighbouring municipality has stated on the public record that there is MS-13 gang graffiti all over.
What, is he lying too? Hahahaha, you clowns are hilarious....
Proof? help me out, what neighboring municipality, and generally when? If they have such a presence in the area, and can "eat us up and poop us out" why haven't they and why is it that you are the only one that knows about it?

Ronnie is the type that likes to sling it and hear is own voice. When confronted to prove things they stick there fingers tell us to prove it. Of course is only experiance and knowledge of gangs and their activity is limited to how many seasons of the series OZ he has.

You people who say that there are no gangs around here are just living in complete denial. Hispanic gangs are currently operating in Biglerville, Aspers, York Springs, Hanover, and yes, Gettysburg as well. And if you haven't noticed this area has a boatload of the so-called "migrant workers" living here year round and mixed in with them are their gangster relatives. They've taken over, plain and simple.

Is the person arrested for the murder affiliated with any gangs?

Does anyone know?

Rumor says no but he is a "wanna be" gang member. Just conjecture at this point though. Not trying to answer definitively.

I believe the suspect knows, and probably the police. If you want to stop at the county prison, and talk to him, I am sure he would tell you and he would enjoy the company.

I can understand your frustration, but just wait until the town fathers exert their tremendous influence. The drug dealers and gangsters don't stand a chance!

I saw MS-13 graffiti spray painted all over behind several businesses in town, a restaurant and gas station to name a few places.

These street gangs are nothing to laugh at, they would ravage any of you blissfully unaware people who whistle while walking down the sidewalks of Gettysburg.

They call you marks. Easy marks.

Please I want to be educated, can you name some of these businesses, the restaurant and gas station so I can see what the graffiti looks like so I can recognize it when I see it in my neighborhood.

I don't want these gangs near my family.

I understand that the National Guard will be in town tomorrow to restore order and to get this crazy gang violence under control since the Gettysburg police are outmanned and outgunned by these gang bangers. So just relax everyone because by late tomorrow these gangsters will be on their way to Gitmo.
