Townieblood, your post is hard to follow so I am not sure what your message is. I do see the word yuppie which makes me sad. Like so many who you may put into that category, I moved here when I was a twenty something so that I could be close to my job in the city. Not a super high paying job, but a job I needed to work hard at. I rented a small space in Eden. My beaten down car was broken into repeatedly and the kids from Mishawum harassed me from time to time. Still though, there was something about this place that made me want to stay. Made me convince my boyfriend to come rent with me. Made us as a newly married couple, continue renting until we could scrape up enough money to buy a place. Made me proud to carry my newborn son over the threshold and whisper in his ear that he was home. I come from a small town. I understand your frustration with change. But we can see what has become of a country so divided, what future can this town have if this division among us remains? Rather than assuming that the "good guy"s are locked up, look around. See me. See us. Not “yuppies”, “toonies” “brownies” but US. People that are working hard to carve out a place in life. People who although do not have the history you have here, have a love for it. There is an enemy out there, but it is not the Townies or the Toonies. It is addiction, it is poverty and it is fear. There is one mile we all call home; can you imagine if we could join TOGETHER to protect it?

Very well said! Happy to have you as my neighbor CAW.

CAW I wish I could 'like' your comment, well said. Thank you. Maybe we can do something together. Maybe a petition or if anybody has a better idea we can do it.

Thank you both Jay and Shirin! I love Charlestown patch and have always been an avid reader but never really much of commentator. Just recently though I started going through all of the comments trying to decipher why there seems to be such increase in brazen attacks on our neighbors. Rather than answers though, I just found many angry people. I agree Shirin that something needs to be done for sure. Just last night, I was walking with my husband and my little boy. I turned around to see a man walking very slowly and close to my husband. My heart skipped for a beat in a flash of panic until I realized it was just a man walking a small dog. In all my years here, I have not felt that panic. Is the general consensus that there is not enough police presence? Do we know if that has changed? What is the environment for addicts and offenders? Is there help or just hopelessness? I am all for gathering a group of people to create a voice, I would just like to be more educated so that the voice is one of strength rather than one of anger. Does that make sense?
