So, your choice is an attempt to school me and put me in my place rather than address Nile's last post? That speaks volumes.
Show me where I have ever said that I hate all visitors and how history disrupts my life. Never happened. That constitutes a lie.
I don't know Wendy. Another lie.
I can't "own" a public forum, and you can't either, but thanks for stating the obvious just the same. Do you want a "point" for that?
I annoy you? Wah. Wah. Wah.(fake tears) Looks like the feeling is mutual. Snicker.
Its OK AC I can tell that I annoy you. I realize that after your devastating blow of not getting a casino it has made you a bitter person. I was wondering what other endeavors you're pursuing, if any to bring quality employers to the Gettysburg area.
BTW, no you don't annoy me in any way shape or form, I find you amsuing. I like the circus and Gettysburg has a real act going on. By all means please continue, thank you and have a nice day.

Would you stop bickering? It makes Gettysburg look very bad and makes you sound petty.
What do you people do in life to be able to waste your time here? I mean AC native and nile gronkowski, you seem to be everywhere all the time.
It is pathetic.
Moira, this is a typical response from AC or some of the others' from Gettysburg, they aren't a very friendly group of people. HOwever, don't confuse this minority of individuals as being the norm for the area, most are very pleasant.

They are the main reason that Gettysburg is always passed over by the state and federal governments and private investors when it comes to the allocation of money and resources.

Their moronic stances on every issue and their petty attitudes.

These men are the village idiots.

I'd have thought they'd have come to the realization their postings are read by those wanting to invest and visit Gettysburg. With their poor attitudes towards those not agree with them, would give any investor pause for concern.

Women's groups and child safety experts suggest that in this case where a potential violent sexual predator is using the ruse of having authority as a law-enforcement officer, that those fearful of a local sicko like this NOT pull over for anyone except a uniformed officer in a marked patrol vehicle.

If it really an off-duty or undercover detective who is assigned to just murders, but who thinks you are drunk on the road and takes the time to stop you, he would have a marked unit perform the traffic stop with him.

If it was unmarked police car used for traffic duty, the officer would be in his full uniform and shortly thereafter, other uniformed officers and marked police cars backing-up the first officer would be right behind them.

If, after performing their on-line research about the crime problem that exists in Gettysburg, potential tourists have safety concerns, then they should not go to Gettysburg. It's that simple.

The first part of your advise is very good and true.

Also, should you be on the road and see that you believe may be police lights but you aren’t sure, if you have a hands free phone, call 911 and give your location and direction of travel, and they can confirm if it is a police officer.

But to assume such a thing has only happened in Gettysburg is wrong. Here are a few examples.

Man impersonates Federal Officer in Long Island, New York Sunday July 1st 2012 “arrested” and took him to his home

Mississippi a man impersonating a police officer may have killed two people.

Brooklyn, New York, a make impersonating a police officer has been robbing apartments.

Queens New York, two men posing as police officers break into an apartment. On March 9th

NYPD are searching for a cross dresser who impersonates a police woman.

So what? The issue here is that it is a local yokel who is trying to pull over women and assumedly sexually assault them. This is a reason why people are not going to come to this area, not because it isn't on the list of historic places to go, rather because of the yokel idiots that make it unsafe.
Slice it any way you want. People are going to Philadelphia or D.C. this summer and you idiots even know that.
Congrats BoroVent Trolls!
Your post indicates that you believe this only happens in the Gettysburg area. It doesn't.

And where is your proof this is a local individual? No one has been apprehended yet, so it could be someone from Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, Baltimore or any place.

One buffoon on here trying to deflect attention from the fact that there is a police impersonator out there who feels very comfortable operating in the Gettysburg area.

He feels comfortable operating in the area because he is a yokel. Criminals like this sick sick person only feel bold enough to operate in their comfort zones.

Hopefully he won't pull over a station wagon and murder two parents and three children next time.

Do you think this person is well known to the locals and they're turning a blind eye to his activities?

Similar to Pink Eye's and your modus operandi, attempting to impersonate intelligent human beings.

Glaringly obvious problems like you people from elsewhere sticking your nose in our business,(and making stuff up / exaggerating)for instance? Yeah, I do wish that could be fixed.

Well if what were posting is incorrect why is tourist traffic continually on the decline? IF tourist traffic is on the decline why is this so, and what are the locals willing to do to fix the problem.
I'd say Gettysburg needs all the help they can get, the locals sure aren't doing to much.,

Good lord son, you come off as a rude person, Folks, please do not think that all people from Whitestone act like Parker Knowles and his belligerent friends.

I must ask what is the reason for all of the hostility towards people? Some questions were raised and hopefully the truth came out. I will say that with all the constant talk of crime and whatnot that I am glad I visited Gettysburg before all of that gang stuff took hold if it's true. A very historic place, it is a real shame that element took over. I do agree that it can happen anywhere, there are bad areas up here.

Since you asked a relatively intelligent question in a somewhat civil manner I'll jump in and answer even though you have been told this before.
Tourist traffic is on the decline over recent years since that kind of tourism is on the decline and does not appeal to today's youth. Now, with the anniversary coming we will have a good year this year and for sure next year. After that though..... Having all of our eggs in one basket is not a good idea.
Many locals will work to solve the problem. Others are retired and just want to live a peaceful life in the country and find ways to fight things that they don't agree with.
We do have locals that work pretty hard to prevent businesses. Too bad they have had some luck getting out of towners to be their lackeys.

I don't think that Gettysburg will be able to recover from all the bad press and other problems.

Things aren't like they used to be. The numbers of tourists in general is dropping, and with no reason to go to Gettysburg and many reasons not to go to Gettysburg, people choose other places.

Even tourism here in NYC is dropping compared to previous decades.

Tourism is down all over. With the economy like it is, many aren’t taking the big vacations they used to. And with the price of fuel, even through it is down somewhat now, people are staying closer to home.

Tell me about the bad press. Not the false accusations and claims made here. Or the exaggerated statements that are unfounded and unproven that have been made here. Tell me about the bad press. True facts that are bad for Gettysburg.
