Crime-ridden town widens curfew - Crime & courts - MSNBC.com
I'm so very proud.
Not sure if that is a good thing for your city.
I'm interested to see how it's going to go down. It's clearly unconstitutional to put an entire city on lockdown 24/7.
I especially like this quote, "As far as I'm concerned, at 3 o'clock in the morning, nobody has any business being on the street, except the law."
When I still lived there, I was always up at 3 o'clock in the morning. There's even a 24 hour McDonald's there. I'm sure they're not very happy with this.
Our hometown made the news a few years back too ....

my State, Maine, ranks 49 out of all states in crime.... I do feel very safe here.... I don't know what state ranks 50....need to look that up....hmmmm.....
regardless, crime is very low here and it was one of the reasons we moved up here....and just follow the snow tracks if you want to catch the burglar....lol
of course there aren't many good jobs here, and pay is really low compared to other states, but that is what it is....
I'd get out Dodge if i were you jsanders!
Oh trust me, I moved out of there years ago. It's poverty-infested. I haven't even visited my mom in a year.
Where I live, there's very little crime, lots of job opportunities and growth. It's actually on many of the best places to live lists.
Then I think I would get my "MOM" outta there.
whereabouts in maine are you? i enjoy camping up on hermit island by popham beach and bath. and bob's clam hut in kittery = tasty
Trust me, I've tried. She's convinced she can't afford to live anywhere else.
My brother and sister-in-law live there, as well. They won't leave because her father is the head of the church in the area, and she won't move too far away from her parents.
I told them I can't believe they would choose to raise their kids there. It was bad enough when we were growing up there, but it's 100 times worse now.
