Re: [gpk] San Miguel crime spree?

Small world -- was an editor at the Courier Times and was involved in journalism and local government for many years.

In Delaware County -- where I grew up and now live there is an influx of Meso Americans. The Philadelphia Inquirer ran a story about "Latin gangs." I talked with one of my cop pals who mentioned some of the initiation rituals. Very brutal and violent.

Not sure where the gang culture started.
Is there a big gang presence in Mexico City?

Home invasion robberies (not burglaries) are prevalent in Philadelphia. Recently, a new thing -- and often co notates drugs and drug money.
Finally, crime stats are stats in any land. It's density and the number of cops per 1,000 citizens and the type of crimes factored in. Air pollution is the same number in NYC and DF.

This story in real life (and not the web) has no legs. There are no facts rumors and really does a community a disservice.

A few burglaries is hardly a "spree" but a few here in sleepy Wallingford caused one of the town fathers to give a short speech at the recent meeting. I video the meetings for local community channel.

I am not sure how many made the daily newspaper either or if the cops reported them. They were, however, listed in the monthly police report that is read
Bill and Jackie Wilson
