Disagree if you like . A fact is a fact. We seen a group of People , about 12 in town around the Theater. These are adult men . Not kids. About five of them have served time. One of them is known for "Breaking and entering. He was extremely hard to catch. Police made a case due to the fact that he got so "strung out" , he just committed a theft on the spur of the moment because he was high. He was put away for six to seven years. He is now grouping with his old gang again. Question? Question ? Why are "grown men" standing around on a side walk with thugs who also were in jail ? Why don't they have a job ? Why are they not working? Yes , they have the freedom to hang out on the side walk . Do you think these 19 year old teens that the Town has hired to "Police " , is going to find your Sheet when its stolen ? Do you think they are going to out smart the Cons ? These cops can't even find your house without a GPS . They are writing tickets because their detective was a ticket writer . when they do write one , they write it up wrong. The crime wave will pick up and break. Ins and stealing is on its way and the police is chasing the working man who is drug free !!!!!!!!!

Tickets tickets tickets. break-in after break-in. I wish we had a police force that had some insight, experience and maturity. This is the worst I have seen in many years. The person with no job (and doesn't want one) who takes from others is teated better than those who work and pay taxes. It is a shame. The ones stealing and breaking in have more rights and freedom than the ones trying to do what is right.

You would not get a ticket if you didn't break the law. Don't speed, run stop signs, or break any other traffic laws and you won't have to worry about tickets. As far as break ins go if you see something suspicious report it. The more who watch out for their self, their neighbor, etc and report it the more of these guys they'll catch. Downing the cops for writing tickets takes away from your complaint. I say catch the criminals and write the tickets b/c both are an officers job. Also I like how they have added the crimes being investigated to the police report. That was a nice idea.

I also like them adding the crimes onto the police list in the paper, but this does not help train the police officers to be more equipt to handle those who commit cirmes, like break-ins. I would rather have the people arrested that do break-in and vandalize, than someone who runs a stop sign. Also, tickets should not be changed for some after they are written. This also breaking the law to write tickets for people and then decide, "Oh, I didn't know that was so and so" and then do away with the ticket.

When my sheet is stolen , it is my problem as well. When my friends and neighbors sheet is stolen it is my problem as well. When the house on the same street I live is broken into , it becomes my problem because it can lower your property value or affect the sale of my house. Keep your "Crack Head" mentality and continue to be hung on crack. You will eventually break in the wrong house and some old person will shoot your dope ass. People are getting sick of this stuff. If the police continue to play Barney fife, eventually some citizen is going to shoot somebody in protection of there things.

Yea, the paper write ups they started doing is really good. It kind of took the wind out of So true, Pennington Gap, VA statement above. I listen to the scanner all the time, haven't heard anything at all in several weeks about a breakin. From the paper sure looks like they are working the street and the drug arrest. Three cheers for the pd. Thanks guys. Without the mayor you should be able to do your job good now.

You know, people can change. I don't know who it is or who the group of guys are, and I do agree that it is trashy to hang out on the street, but I think EVERYBODY deserves a second chance. Until they start doing the same things again, give them a break. EVERYBODY in this life makes mistakes. If they do start breaking in places then by all means kick a**.

well the guy who stole the copper out of my house before we bought it had three chances and three times he ripped the house apart. I felt sorry for the poor guy who had to fix it. Everytime he finnished the work the little crack head did it again. He is in jail again now but when he comes home he might want to pick on somebody else. I do not feel obligated to give him another chance. Maybe a chance to run from the buck shot.
