    I wish the media would STOP doing stories on people being shot – it’s an every day occurrence. These crimes usually occurr in downtrowden areas, and frankly, I’m tired of the gang bangers getting their 15 minutes of fame.

  2. JustSaying says:

    Anytime someone points a weapon at you and shoots, isn’t that a ‘confrontation’ by default? There’s little chance of this being solved, unless someone comes forward with the information. After all, this is New Castle and EVERYBODY knows the rep of the police there!

    This is why you carry concealed.

    Th e police in New Castle do a fine job…they have alot to deal with n dont have enough officer’s to patrol the streets due to financial issues. The west side of New Castle alone is alot to deal with along with the rest of the city
