    C’Mon Archie, tell us again how banning the good guys guns will eliminate Charles Darwins’ laws of human evolution!!!!!

    As someone in the 1980’s who loved Williamsport and Wilkes-Barre, and spent many days in both, I NEVER feel safe in either anymore….. What a shame

    • Eagles fans hoodrats

      Yes, I miss those days of Williamsport. I would visit my WACC friends during the ’80s and go to Faxon lanes and The Factory. Good times no more. I wouldn’t even dare to exit off 220 to enter that chithole now!

    Put a “traffic camera” on the street outside the Ali Baba Lounge and you’d have suspects for all these shootings.

      Precisely. There would only be sclera and teeth visible.

      Cash For Criminals really works well, doesn’t it?

  • Frank Rizzo

    I’m sure the Chief will edit this report and say two people were accidentally wounded while cleaning a pellet gun.

  • Dave Matichwa

    And that goof ball mayor and his sidekick chief will insist the crime rate is down. Sure it is Uncle Tony. I believe you

      • Hippity Bippity Boppity

        All those felons, addicts, from Filthadelphia, came and ruined Williamsport, now the City is renamed PHIL-iamsport, in honor of the City where the trash came from that got dumped here in the CASH for TRASH program that started in the late 1980’s

      • Mister Glock To You

        This has happened to a LOT of cities – Wilkes-Barre, Williamsport, Hazelton, Scranton………all of these places accepted cash in return for accepting undesirables that were transplanted by the State. THAT is what happened, here. And, this used to be a safe, beautiful, and pleasant area of the nation to be. No longer. The baddies keep getting illegal firearms while the stable and law-abiding peeps have to jump on one leg and juggle cleavers to register their weapons. Yeah……….good job……….
