    it is not just in ch-if you were to look at the newspapers from places like fuquay, you would see probably more than this. especially auto break ins.

    This happens every year when students begin arriving back. I've lived on the Hill almost my entire life, and "ghetto" isn't a word that's synonymous with Chapel Hill. Love to see your stats, 2. Wanna bet, the people are from outside of CH?

    CH is going to the ghetto - far from it
    Its been like this the past 2 years. Each summer houses/condos/apts. are being broke into in record numbers. I can't wait till one of these thiefs break into my condo. I already have something for them.

    CH is going to the ghetto, and I'm not saying that b/c of my NCSU icon... I'm saying it because there are stats to prove it.

    Did the houses have alarms? Were they active?
