    Same description everytime I read about an assault. They dont need to move anything away from the ghetto.

    WE need to move the trash away from us. I dont car what the cops do or dont do. If someone breaks into my home its the last thing they'll do with two legs.

    There is a connection with the library and crime, as the library is located across the street from Westchester apts, home to many young thug-looking residents. Much of the time you can't walk into the libray without having to walk past or through a gang of them. Last time I was there a security guard was running off a group of 7-8 of them who were hanging out in front acting like fools. Westchester is also home to a recent violent home invasion within the past week or so. It's a great library, but they need to move it away from the ghetto.

    archmaker - Maybe someone in your family can be assulted, and then we can talk about the library. I would have no problme with that.

    as long as we are talking about assults in garner, let's talk about the county considering closing the Southeast Regional Library - one of the counties most used. This story is getting no attention outside of garner.

    Description is very vaugue to me. That could be anybody.... Why even release a description without any define points. I hope the person assualted is okay after a traumatizing event. Police should work a little harder on there investigations.

    And the baggy pants, hoodie wearing crowd wonders why people look at them suspiciously. Almost everytime there's a violent crime like this committed the description is the same. Yet all the youth want to look just like these thugs. Maybe so many dress this was so they can get away with stuff and LEO can't tell them apart and surely can't profile.

    People should safely arm themselves so that the next time this thug or those like him commit a violent crime, it'll be their last. The courts won't protect the citizens. How much you wanna bet if this guy is caught, he'll already have a rap sheet?
