College Hill is a mixed-use neighborhood, comprised of residences, commercial properties, city parks, and Lafayette College. We all expect to know if there is crime in our neighborhood so that we may protect our properties and ourselves.
In the past few weeks there have been at least four car thefts in College Hill. Two vehicles were damaged by hit and run. Another vehicle was vandalized and contents were stolen. This is just the news that we have been told by the victims that we know; there must be more crime than this. Isn’t this worthy of a story? I’m just asking.
The residents of College Hill should know that they are not safe. This is not the invulnerable neighborhood it once was. We must lock our doors, buy a big dog, and put our cars in our garages…if we have one.
Is it possible that our current City administration has reduced Police staffing to its very limits? Such limits, allowing criminals to work quite freely here on the Hill?
Why doesn’t the Express-Times report crimes in College Hill? Does the City withhold this information from the Express-Times or does the Express-Times just withhold it from us?
I’m Just Asking.
