Crime is waaaay up here on our normally crime-free island.

In the last couple of weeks the bank was robbed, the pharmacy was robbed, and now the cash machine at the pizzaria was stolen.

Hows the crime in your area?

Someone tried to rob a local liquor store a couple of days ago. The sales clerk told the would-be robber to perform an anatomically impossible act.
I have no idea if the miscreant succeeded with that act, but he failed in the attempted robbery.

That's what you would expect when you turn criminals loose on the street. It's safer to re-elect them.

True, but Bush already served 2 terms. Thats the limit.

I don't know what has happened around here. Bangor is a relatively sleepy little city with rare major crime. But then I haven't been following the news all that closely since my TV died.

I imagine, with the ongoing economic problems, that petty theft is up. People also seem a bit more short tempered of late, which has probably led to more bar fights,domestic disputes, DUIs, etc.

Making off with a ATM must be a piece of work! LOL.

Now we have 20 - 30 cars looted and 20 boats had their electronics stolen.

And they are just about to start cutting the police dept. due to budget cuts.

some things get stolen here, some people leave their keys in the ignition during the day, & a lot of people dont insure their cars for theft
that was weird when i first heard it, but ok , if they never take the car off the island
