    I guess this is more police brutality!. I’m certain there are some bad cops, just like there are bad apples in every vocation. I’m just amazed at the significant animosity I sense against the police. I am glad they are out there!

    Just a couple of law abiding citizens being harassed by the police. I can guarantee they were up to no good.

    THANK GOD!! There needs to be a BIGGER police presence up there – it’s a flipping drug haven up there. For any of us (working, & law abiding people) who made the mistake of buying up there a few years ago, we are THRILLED to see more police!! They could EASILY stop at least 2 to 5 cars a night on Southern, & Norton for drugs!

      I use to live on Norton inbetween Gray and Sandwich street and I never saw any drug dealing going on. There was a ghetto family that moved in across from us after about a year and a half of living there and they were loud. Our street was so quiet and minded our own business. I look out my window one night and the street was FILLED with black kids because some 12 year old girl was slapped by some 18 year old man…why was she hanging out with an 18 year old!? That was the only incident I ever saw in my 3 years of living in that house.

        Just to clarify the girl had moved in with the ghetto family I mentioned. The street was quiet until they moved in. And this is fact, not being racist.

    I just read at least 5 other crime articles, every assailant was white! Yet you bigots get on here and comment about blacks! How dare you…trash comes in all colors! Especially white!

    1. Yup says:

      Trash does come in all colors. There is a good bit of black and white crime on here and people need to stop seeing skin color and just try to stop crime altogether.

    2. Yup says:

      Oh, and you adding in the “Especially White!” comment makes you a bigot yourself. You could have just left it at “Trash comes in all colors!” and I would have respected you, now I just see you as every other racist.

    Ironically there was only ONE post that mentioned race here……….and yet someone screams racist????? Wow, looking for problems that don’t exist???? Try Norton down by the Park, there’s drug dealing that goes down there ALL the time. Seriously, there is TRASH all around Norton Street that comes in ALL colors of the rainbow – I never mentioned race & would be thrilled if they arrested ANY/ALL of the drug dealers white or black!!!
