Good heavens! I can't believe this happened in Greece. I guess it shows that we're really not safe in this town any more. Daytime or night, watch out!

This is in an area bounded by Ridge and Mt Read and Stone and Dewey very close to Holyoke Apts and that Taco Bell that was robbed at gunpoint recently. We are not safe anywhere in Greece or the city unless we are armed ourselves. Even then you have to be trained on how to use the weapon without getting killed yourself or accidentally hurting an innocent.
The city that is just south of that area especially on Dewey is very ghetto and scary.
Why can't the police protect us and make us safe in our neighborhoods? Vigilantism is next.

Interesting the October 8th story that recommends walking to school in the morning to help keep healthy. How will that work if we are pistol whipped on the way to school?
There is a study that suggests that work and activity (not necessarily exercise) over at least 4 hours during the day helps to keep obesity away. People that have more active work days and do work around their house tend to stay more fit than people who exercise an hour a day and have an otherwise sedentary lifestyle. (healthy diet is assumed) So maybe the kids could do some work and chores at home as well as playing sports for fun and just playing. Always supervised for safety. Let's not recommend walking to school for any of the students until the police can keep our area safe from criminals and evil-twin pit bulls and distracted drivers.

I heard Auberger put the hit on the guy for having a Maloney sign on his lawn, and calling Time Warner wondering where his public access went?
