MC I'm disppointed. With all that's going on in the world we couldn't come with anything better than this garbage that only brings out the racists comments that are notorious on these threads. I have family in haycock township in Quakertown and I have never even seen a policeman in all my years visiting our farm. I have never heard a siren. So what there's a one lane street of a town that crime is low. So now what?

That is to make it more safe.
I can only tell you what I would do. First off, I would mandate welfare be given only to U.S. citizen's with 5 years of residency in Pennsylvania. This would eliminate the incentive the scum from New York, New Jersey, and elsewhere have for coming here. I would have every illegal alien found and removed no matter where they came from. I would pull funding from social programs and use it to fully train and staff a professional police force. Only when crime had dropped substantially would I restore these programs. I would replace every liberal judge and instruct those who are seated to not accept every plea bargin that comes their way. I would openly declare English the offical language and remove all other language's from county business. This means no taxpayer funded interpreters for criminals and no county paperwork of any kind printed in anything but English. I would impose a moratorium on section 8 and shutter all government funded housing projects. I would limit the number of rental properties and restore those that have been converted to multiple family dwellings. I would remove any student with a criminal record from public school and insert them in a work program geared toward cleaning the city of graffiti and refuse. Only when they have demonstrated that they can be a productive member of society would they be allowed to return to school. I would eliminate early release from prison and initiate a one strike and your out policy for any existing parolee's. I would remove every member of City Council. I would impose a strict curfew on minors and anyone with a criminal record. I could go on for hours but I will end this here.

C'mon, run fast Eddie right out of PA We could use some no-nonsense, enforcible(sp) laws and programs. How about workfare instead of welfare?

I believe workfare has already been tried and for the most part it was a failure. If most of these people wanted to work they wouldn't be on welfare in the first place. The way to reduce crime is by making sure criminals serve their complete sentence. When you hear that some lowlife got 10 years in prison in reality they only got around 2 1/2 years. The criminals know they will be paroled long before their sentence is up and they consider this the price of doing business. Buy making them serve their whole sentence it will keep more criminals of the street for a much longer time. It's very simple, less parole, less criminals, less crime. This is one thing that we can push for next election season that will make a real difference in the quality of life of law abiding citizens.

Thanxx to Ronnie, we have MS-13. And thanxx to the Jones Act 1917 (see Spanish War 1898) we've got 15,000,000 Puerto Ricans (and a total of 15,000,000 South, Central, and Carribbeans plus 4,000,000 Cubans separately, all moving from the East coast to the West, slowly).

We've got approx 60,000,000 Mexicans heading West to East. When these massive blocks/fifth columns meet up in Alden, Kansas, the U.S. will have become Greater Spain.

Look for this to happen circa 2015.

In Rosetto, they are moving north from Alltn. and south from NY state and N/E.

Thank You for your support. Now all I need to do is raise around a billion dollars to buy the next election. I figure if I win the Lotto ten or so times in the next four years I will be set.

Hell, the scumbags are doing that already and when you ask for more police coverage the "small minded council" who think the budget is their own personal pocketbook and won't pull out a dime for police have the nerve to ask "why are we being hit so hard?" Well, morons, hire more cops and keep our streets safe, police can only work with what they have, not what they don't have!

The reason the crime rate is so low is due to lack of correct reporting by the police department to the State Police UCR's! The Roseto PD is part time and only on duty certain times. This contributes to the lack of higher crime rates being reported. The PD is a waste of money. Most people in Roseto don't call the police due to the fact that they don't believe that the Roseto police are capable of solving crime, or doing anything to be proactive. The police chief is a joke, and the officers are lazy and incompetent. Wake up Roseto, its time to disband your little police department and get on board with a regional police department with your neighboring communities. This will allow people to see true and accurate numbers of criminal activity in Roseto. Not the same lines that there is very little crime in town.
You must be one of the incompetant officers that the new chief fired because all you guys ever did was sleep on duty and got your police training while working at Turkey hill! Get a real police job MORON.

Bravo...the most intelligent post ever on any forum. You have to be a transplant (no offense if you are not)because you see it how it should be seen. Do exactly what you say and problems will be decreased. Actually, you should run for office, a person with brains and foresight is needed and you have said what should have been said years ago...again BRAVO!

walnutport has more crime because the police department rather hang out at the gas station with young girls sitting on the hoods of the cruiser and giving working people going to work minor traffic tickets than looking out personal property and serious crimes.the boro needs state police not the local cops

I've read all the posts and I can tell you from firsthand experience that Roseto is a great little town with a proud Italian heritage. Because of this heritage it was apparent that NOBAMA was not the candidate of choice. Rosetan work hard and know that is the way to a better life. And they do cling to their guns and cherish their religion. This is the PA I knew and want to keep.

As far as the "red baron" It is obvious that you are either a wannabee cop, former cop or currently disgruntled cop. You twisted anger shows that you've either been reject for employment or just jealous of what the new police chief has accomplished. Local policing is a hard job. You're everything to everybody at all times. If you expect a day policing Roseto to be a version of "cops" on TV in East Los Angeles, then you've lost reality. Policing a small town is about gaining the confidence of your community and being there for them for every purpose. Its a service oriented job in small town America and Chief Nicholias has brought professionalism to this little, quaint Italian town that is not only the Jewel of Eastern PA by the envy as well. Keep up the good work Chief, your progress shows through your results!!

Is Barney Fife the chief in Roseto?

I think Otis is the town drunk.

If crime starts to get bad the Roseto town council will vote the money for Barney to get another bullet and they will feel safe again.

Roseto has been deemed the "safest town" for a long time in the media not just this article.

Things are bad everywhere. It is seeping into our homes from our rebelious children and the thugs that that are moving in. We are not safe no.matter we live. Welcome to life.

The only thing one that saves is Christ Himself. So start praying first for yourself, family, town, and country :)
