This is almost an everyday occurrence here in Allentown. For us who live here it is becoming so bad that many of my older neighbors are afraid to leave their house at night. Allentown has become a cesspool that is spilling out into every area of the Lehigh Valley. Nothing is being done by the city administration to effectively correct the crime issue here in our city. The schools are hitting bottom and most of the students leave school before they graduate or if they do graduate are unable to do basic spelling and math.
Allentown, a nice place to live and work, if you survive.

It's getting almost as bad as Gettysburg. A man was stalked down and then set on fire and left to die in the street in Gettysburg.

Sick sick people there.

A 17 year old carrying and using a knife, and a daylight attempted murder on the streets. Another typical day in Allentown.
Where's Allentown Observer to tell us how this is no big deal and how Allentown is still a great place to raise a family ?

You don't know the whole story. In a city of 100,000 plus, you have fights over women once in a while. I'm still waiting all the murders that will "tie the record" of homicides here. Lmfao at that and how you actually posted a link that supports such stupidity and CLUELESSNESS!!

Yeah no crime time in the city known as sin bin. Quality of life, whose definition? Yes it is made up as we go along.

BTW about 2/3 of the houses on 11th between Hamilton and Linden need the grass cut. Anyone wanna donate time to the cause?

Who lives on that block?

From a recent web page I read:
"With a crime rate of 51 per one thousand residents, Allentown has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes - from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One's chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 20. Within Pennsylvania, more than 97% of the communities have a lower crime rate than Allentown. Importantly, when you compare Allentown to other communities of similar population, then Allentown crime rate (violent and property crimes combined) is quite a bit higher than average. Regardless of how Allentown does relative to all communities in America of all sizes, when NeighborhoodScout compared it to communities of similar population size, its crime rate per thousand residents stands out as higher than most. The crime data that NeighborhoodScout used for this analysis are the seven offenses from the uniform crime reports, collected by the FBI from 17,000 local law enforcement agencies, and include both violent and property crimes, combined. Now let us turn to take a look at how Allentown does for violent crimes specifically, and then how it does for property crimes. This is important because the overall crime rate can be further illuminated by understanding if violent crime or property crimes (or both) are the major contributors to the general rate of crime in Allentown. For Allentown, we found that the violent crime rate is one of the highest in the nation, across communities of all sizes (both large and small). Violent offenses tracked included forcible rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, armed robbery, and aggravated assault, including assault with a deadly weapon. According to NeighborhoodScout' s analysis of FBI reported crime data, your chance of becoming a victim of one of these crimes in Allentown is one in 160. In addition, NeighborhoodScout found that a lot of the crime that takes place in Allentown is property crime. Property crimes that are tracked for this analysis are burglary, larceny over fifty dollars, motor vehicle theft, and arson. In Allentown, your chance of becoming a victim of a property crime is one in 23, which is a rate of 44 per one thousand population. Importantly, we found that Allentown has one of the highest rates of motor vehicle theft in the nation according to our analysis of FBI crime data. This is compared to communities of all sizes, from the smallest to the largest. In fact, your chance of getting your car stolen if you live in Allentown is one in 270."

These are the facts A town , you may choose to ignore them as you usually do.

LMAO ! With your spelling skills, you shouldn't be throwing around words like stupidity and cluelessness, Ward Rat. LOL !!

"In a city of 100,000 plus, you have fights over women once in a while".

Yeah, and you have school-age kids doing it with knives. That should make you feel really good about sending your kids through the ASD. But you still think it's a great place to raise a family. There's the real stupidity. Well, that and saying you can afford to live in a less dangerous , less run down and less drug filled town, but admittedly choose to let your family live next to "90% scumbags". Your words.

"I'm still waiting all the murders that will "tie the record" "

I think you meant "for" all the murders, but again your ignorance was unable to be kept in check.
Anyway... I'm still waiting for you to respond to any post where that's already been explained to you, instead of continuing to bring it up in other threads like you haven't been schooled enough about it. Again, with your spelling ability and now apparently your reading comprehension level, you shouldn't be calling anyone stupid or clueless.

Speaking of conveniently ignoring posts, I see you chose to ignore We Are Number One's post about your "city of 100,000."
