Vandalism Strikes The Caboose
Regardless how hard the citizens try to present a decent image of Delmar there is always one or two people who will destroy any improvement other people make. Last night someone kicked in the door of the caboose uptown. Chris Walters stopped by and patched it back up so it is presentable again. It is bad enough we have the LeCates building, which seems to be a Mayor and Council approved sight for the town. You have to wonder where were the police when it happened?
I've got to agree with 5:09. That's like saying "You have to wonder where Howard was with his camera when it happened?" Sounds kind of ridiculous now doesn't it, Howard?
I guess they should have just let them go and set up surveillance on the caboose.
Sorry but I guess you can see that I don't agree with you that this is the fault of the police. Heck, if an officer drove past once an hour that still would not be enough to stop someone from kicking in the door. One would have to drive past probably every 10 minutes which would be riculious.
I blame it on the schools for not teaching them how to act...The government took away the parents' right to discipline a child, and they do control the public school environment, do they not?
Well,,, that makes them the disciplinarians of all these kids!
Once again an "F"...Maybe we should give out ice cream to all youngin's who come home at dusk!
...With a Steelers Hoodie on, of course!
Hard to believe that we dress up an entire street that is showcased by a dilapidated building on the corner of the main drag...
FOR MORE THAN TWENTY YEARS!!!!
The saying goes,,,, "You can put lipstick on a pig, but you STILL gotta pig"
One morning we came to open the shop to find the ENTIRE three month old parking lot covered with donughts, burnout tracks and skidmarks...I mean the ENTIRE 100FT x 300FT surface, which happened to be under brand new, hi-tech street lighting....
It was so nice to found out later a motorcycle "club" shot a video under the lights in the parking lot.
How long did that take???
Lawless people do lawless acts because they have no fear of authority nor respect for it.
WE ALL PAY THE PRICE for the few "bad apples".
The Mission of the Delmar Police Department is to work with all Citizens to preserve, and to maintain Human Rights, protect property and to promote individual
Responsibility and Commitment to the community
It is remarkable you know what the Delmar Police do or did, as they post about zero information on their activities. One reason why the town is critical of them is because they never let the town know that they do anything.
A scanner helps and knowing the right people to talk to also helps.
You wrote: "Howard- Cops are not paid to prevent crime, they are paid to investigate crime".
What ever happened to "To serve and protect?"
THAT is the question that has been asked in Delmar for a LONG time!
The citizens do NOT feel they or their property is being protected, get it???
11:16 am Beauty parlors, barber shops and the fire department....anywhere else I should check for insider information? I shouldn't have to belong to the good ol' boys network to know what's happening in Delmar.
I agree but unfortunately I have found that is what it takes in this area.
