LETTERS FROM THE ISLAND: Chronicling crime on the 'Island'


Niagara Gazette — Seriously, this one really got our goat. The street involved is a quiet dead-end in a $275,000 neighborhood. Nobody there should drive faster than walking speed. What on EARTH is the matter with some kids throwing up a net and playing, then scattering at the arrival of occasional traffic?

There may be something more going on, maybe bad blood among neighbors, or maybe a kid was rude, what do we know? But it just seems terrible. We’ve got a bunch of active teens on a fairly busy street around the corner and they’ve ALWAYS got some sort of pavement game going on, one always assigned to sound the alert when autos approach, not to mention two tan mutts yapping through the picture window. We’d rather watch them than the Sabres. Speaking of cruel and unusual punishment …

Anyway, come visit. Bring a warrant.
