It's nice to see residents getting invovled. But, it's a shame some people try to take credit for something they didn't do. The reason I know this is I was one of the 2 people that detained this criminal until police arrived. Mr. Saemmer was definitly not one people that that helped hold this person. As far as the grandson I couldn't be positive but I thought it was more of a middle aged person in a black T-shirt that chased this guy up the street and helped me hold him until 2 police officers arrived and wrestled him to the ground and cuffed him. So, Mr. Saemmer you should come foward and tell the truth about your non-involvment.
You sound like you have sour grapes w/Saemmer. You are being very petty.
I am just happy people in the community helped the police for a change.

Maybe bringing back the old chain gangs and prison farms would help.

And if you really wanted to see the crime rate go down, start sending all of the convicted violent criminals in the downtown jail to New Orleans on a work detail to help rebuild the city in chain gangs with ankle irons.

Were you even there? It is sad that people are so quick to judge others.

After reading comment #18 and not knowing by the article a woman was also caught, and if Mr. Saemmer and his grandson were involved in her capture then I must apologize for my earlier comments and say GREAT JOB GUYS. I guess the reporter was in error about how she stated the facts.

Lissy,

I have seen what you have written in numerous other forums (and I wouldn't be too proud if I wrote the way you do), and it seems to me that every time you do write something, you then claim to not be racist. Well, I DO NOT see it that way. Think about this one...it is you who just threw out the race card in this forum!!!!!! You are what I consider one of the biggest racists I've ever known. You wanna sit there and talk about white trash and trailer park trash this and that, but NO, that's not racist. You see, my dear, I am not a racist person, but I do have a strong hatred for certain kinds of people. I do not care if you are white, black, hispanic, or pink with green polka dots, if you are an ignorant person, I don't like you. Consider that before you make anymore racial comments about us simple white people:)

There would be no danger if the criminal justice system was changed.
Criminals caught in the act like this should be tried and executed by hanging as an example for anyone else wanting to steal a car.
There is no need for jail time to allow the criminal the ability to socialize with other "higher-level" thugs and learn how to re-fine their criminal ways which will not change.
After few executions every month, the crime rate will really go down in Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton.
Now watch all of the bleeding heart liberals complain of this post and offer nothing more than, "He was a good kid."
And if you really wanted to see the crime rate go down, start sending all of the convicted violent criminals in the downtown jail to New Orleans on a work detail to help rebuild the city in chain gangs with ankle irons.
I like that quick justice. Use a gun, though, I need practice for hunting season.

Every other comment you make is about race. You ARE a racist pig! Get over yourself... Sheesh.

BTW... I didn't read ANYWHERE in the story that the guy was white. If you did, would you kindly please point it out so we know for a fact? Or is it just your racism showing again?

Nice to See,

Please forgive me for that little indescretion, as the Morning Call doesn't seem to disclose details such as those. Lissy apparently can't seem to understand though that the "white people" as she calls them were the ones to help. She wants to know why when a "white person" is involved, people don't talk trash on them. As I said before, I don't care what race someone is, trash is trash. By the way, Kudos to you for stepping up in a community that needs all the help they can get right now. I noticed in one of your posts that you said you don't plan on taking credit for the events that occurred. May I remind you that credit is to be given where it is deserved, not to someone who just stood by and watched those events unfold. Again thank you for your help, and keep doing good for Allentown.

Exactly. In the comment section. Anyone can come in here and say that they were there and it was a PR, black or white doing the crime when in fact, they were not there and don't even know sh1t from shineola.

1.no one said the person was white. 2.if u think white people have it any different that is not nessarily true. people who are puerto rican may not say racist words in english but the sure say them in spanish. don;t get me wrong every body has their own faults regardless of race of what color they are. but if u ask my opinion is seems that the black and puerto rican latino people around my area are the first to react to anything. they seem to want to fight first then talk later. and i have nothin against any other race. seech my kids are half white half puerto rican!

I am looking back at this post from years and years ago-and am happy I survived that. My car was demolished from this accident. I still, to this day, am actually getting restitution, which will take years and years and years for him to pay off for my car that he smashed. I am just blessed that I am alive. My only car accident I was in-just wish the police were not in pursuit of Jeffrey Simeon-which LEAD to my crash in centre city-maybe things could have been handled differently-but-my LIFE was at risk, and the one neighbor who helped me after the crash I am blessed. I do not know her name but she WAS THE ONLY ONE who helped me. Bless her.
