TOTALLY AGREE... Small towns offer their History, welcome tourists to visit and contain the quaintness of their town...

I feel the same way. I visit Gettysburg frequently and it's always safe, clean and very pleasant

Tell that to the hiker who was SET ON FIRE in Gettysburg. Or to the family of the woman who was SHOT IN THE FACE AND KILLED in Gettysburg. Or to the elderly woman who was BRUTALLY ROBBED AND BEATEN in Gettysburg. Or to any of the other STABBING, SHOOTING OR RAPE victims in Gettysburg. Or to the children who are molested and raped here.
Gettysburg is a cesspool, you know it, I know it, everyone knows it. The problem is that you stupid worthless locals try to point fingers at everyone else instead of dealing with how awful this town is.
can you prove that any of those things happened? I don't believe you

Do the reasearch for yourself, then you'll know if these things happened.

Don't have to. All anyone has to do is read one old thread to see people have been blowing holes in your stories as long as you've been telling them, which apparently is a loooong time

You must have alot of time on your hands. Are you one of the unemployed of Gettysburg? Heard rumor there aren't many jobs in the area. Now had they gotten that casino they drempt about things might be different for them.

You can't back up any of those claims can you? You just come back with lame insults that don't mean anything to anyone but you. How long does it take you to read one of these threads? It ain't Shakespeare. You post here 10 times a day, pages and pages of threads have your name on them, from what I can see you've been at it for years, and I'm the one with too much time on my hands? That's a good one.

Skippy, you are well aware of the situation within Gettysburg. But, you've decided not to base any of your information with facts. Its always the same thing with those posting from in and around Gettysburg.
The truth is out there and within your grasp, but you choose not to read it, why is that? Are you afraid that your little town isn't as "pure" and wholesome as once thought?
NOw please refrain from insulting those who try to get the truth out there. it only makes you look silly and childish.

I could show you the same truth you've been confronted with here many times and never had an answer for. That's the truth, that's reality. You can't cite a single source for any of your chicanery. Show me one thing he's said that's accurate. Just one, I don't want you to hurt yourself.

The thing is there is a little bit of truth in some of his post, very little.

Yes ONE police chief made a remark about increased gang activity in his area. One police chief out of all the law enforcement agencies in the county said “an increase”. He never said it was a problem, and he never said it was out of control. Except of course, in his private conversations with Davenport.

Yes there was a woman who was knocked down and her purse stolen. She was not brutally assaulted as he claims. And that was one incident in how many years?

Yes there was a lovely young woman shot a while back. But she was not shot in the head at point blank range as he claims. She was shot in the side and drove herself to the hospital before her death. This was not gang related as Davenport claims as stated by local police and the District Attorney’s office.

Yes there was a man who caught himself on fire, or was set on fire. He was not hunted down, and it is kind of strange that the police haven’t been able to contact him lately.

There have been no gang riots, no looting, and I haven’t seen any of the gang graffiti anyplace in the area.

It is interesting that all of these things that Davenport and Pink Eye know about Gettysburg never appears in any of the local newspapers. And I am sure if things were even half as bad as he claims there would have been many items in the National news about it.

I also doubt Smithsonian Magazine would have selected Gettysburg as Americas Best Small Town to Visit, if any of what he claims were true.

Skippy I will not do your homework for you. Its obvious you've been carried thru life, you'll need to venture away from your Mother's apron strings and do the reasearch for yourself.

Nice try. I've seen you comment on the police and fire logs. You should try reading them. There's no violent gang crime epidemic. That's why Davenport has to make up crimes or harp on ones that happened a year ago, two years ago, a decade ago, or 30 years ago.

Skippy I realize that you've been carried thru life by someone else, that's apparent. However, if you need information you need to do your own research. Its not my place to help, I'm sorry that you thought I was.
