Thank's unitedfortruth. I feel stupid and violated. I know hindsight is 20/20. I feel very unsafe now. Thing is nowadays, we don't know our neighbors or what kids belong in our neighborhood. I know a few of mine and many are not home during the day. People on Northwest Blvd saw this guy running with my purse and thought nothing of it. If you even suspect suspicious activity, call the police! Get as much info as you can. Think like a criminal..how would you get in your house? I just never thought someone could get over a balcony that is 10-15 feet off the ground!

Billdog, Sorry I did not write a long explanation. No, I do not think that cops should shoot simply because someone LOOKS like they are doing something. But if they know some jerk is a drug dealer, or is known to have a gun on them, illegally, then yes, shoot the buggers. Why? simple because the thugs and punks have learend how to work the justice system to perfection. Commit a crime, cop to a lesser charge, get out off with probation, and go do it again. How many of these thugs and punks do we read about that have 2, 3, 4, or more PRIOR convictions. But yet they walk the streets, out on early parole, or some bull cookie thing like that. So yes, if the cops KNOW some jerk is a know convicted crook, or known drug dealer,,,yes,,,,shoot, ask later. But not the person who happens to LOOK guilty.

motherof2...im very sorry for what happened to you. sometimes when i post i sound real macho, but im worried about the same thing happening to me...or worse yet my girl when im not here. our part of town isnt the greatest either.

pull together with the neighbors you get along with and help each other out. good people are strong....real strong! its time we remember that.

We need to do something. I was actually robbed today in broad daylight in my house on the NW Blvd area. Me, and 2 of my neighbors have been broken to and/or robbed twice within less than a year. We hear gunfire too frequently. People are moving, abandoned houses everywhere. It's as if the thieves and drug dealers are taking over. I watched a drug deal go down around here in broad daylight. He held up traffic to do it. A gun would not have helped me today unless I was carrying it loaded and ready in my pajamas.

know the fact I did not say I left Warren because of Warren! I didnt abandon the city or its problem! people leave for other reason. your problems in Warren happened after I left. guess I should have stayed to prevent it!if you think we are negative then you need to read your statement again! oh make sure you tell people to go to God! now does that make you holier than thou! love how people choose to stand behind God after putting down others and making assumption in which they know nothing about! you have a good day, you dont have a fact!

I grew up on the North End of Warren and rode my go-kart down Idylwild when I wasn't delivering the Tribune or doing yard-work for a few extra bucks. Warren was a great place to live at one time. I remember riding the bus on North Park Ave. You could ride from Idylwild to downtown at the courthouse area every thirty minutes.The sidewalks were so crowded it was hard to walk through. But the economy dried up and blew away years ago, and the middle class values went away with it. Once known as Little Chicago, for its ethnic diversity, it's now Little Detroit. Drugs, shootings, boarded up houses, and worse are now the norm. There's no easy fix. The only hope is if the economy turns around somehow, and people start taking pride in their neighborhoods again. Maybe the shale oil boom will turn it around -- it could happen.

I love my hometown but I hate to see its decline. most of all I dont like to see people bashing people with stupiditly . I know I cant stop it! just wanted to bring it to light. you can have different opinions but you dont have to bash everyone just because you disagree! I learned a long time ago I cant right every wrong. I come back to Warren to see friends every year. I miss my friends & my history!

For anyone who is glad they left: we are too. You don't help anything by celebrating your absence and there is nothing positive about your comments. You are as much a part of the negativity as the gloom and doomers are and I refuse to share your vision of how abandoning this town is the best of all worlds. Go in peace or go with God, but go and stay gone.

Tell you what ...... chill out. Go sell some of your food stamps for a few bucks and head to your local bar. Order a beer, put your feet up. Play a game of pool or shuffle board. Meet some new friends and be careful on the walk home not to go down that bad street.

Your stupid comments make me think you're drug addicts yourself ....

BLA BLA BLA ........

let me give ya alittle hint on why we write more laws to combat crime rather than to make punishment more severe....

go to your phonebook, turn to ATTORNEY in the yellow pages, and tell me you dont see between 40-50 pages of ads and numbers.

Sign of the times. Lower morals, poor job market and declining income and jobs could be a factor.
