Cristoforo Colombo was America's first gangster. He came to America looking to make a lot of money and robbed and killed the local residents. Colombo was the first foreign terrorist to attack America.

My car was locked and still got robbed, it will help to tell people to lock thier car but its doesnt solve the crime issues. I mean why are thier like 3 cop cars always at the wawa, talk about a waste of resources. In my opinion, priorites have to change for the PD. Seems like they care about everything else but the stuff that is affecting us everyday.

I understand there was another "break in" through an unlocked garage door yesterday. I don't see the story on The Patch, but why are people still leaving doors to their homes and cars open?

Well the point i's whether my eleven hundred dollars 2 pr of glasses that I can't drive without or coupon books that cost me eighty five or my 40dollar car phone charger, my stuff should be safe in my property. My son left his bike out a while back for the first time unbeknownst to me and it was taken that one time he forgot.all I'm saying is it sucks,i just wana live and let live. You say nothing has affected me but My friend was robbed of over two hundred dollars and some personal electronics and thats a half block away and we have neighbors with countless arrests for alleged theft of expensive and cheaper items right within my street. Looked like a perfectly decent middle class neighborhood, paid top dollar the yr before thr real estate mkt crashed and yeah I have a right to be unhappy here, trust me.
