These people from Philly move out here to the PV and bring their crime and bad habits with them. When I moved here in the 70's there was NO crime whatsoever. You can thank the overdevelopment of this area for all our problems!

Oh come on! If the police don't even know who did it how can you leap to such a conclusion? There are plenty of homegrown criminals out there.

In the '70's I lived in the College Arms Apts and someone tried to break into our bedroom while we were sleeping. Nowadays, the idiots that leave their wallets and purses in their cars (while they are not driving it) almost deserve to have them stolen.
