Officer Making It Safer for Senior Citizens

Kudos to Cop, 1st Dist, in white suv 3:20 am Mon. 6/18, 1800 Mifflin St, 19145, stopped senior citizen as she was entering her home w/a bucket of gravel from street paving to fill around her tree. "Excuse me, Miss, what are you going to do with that bucket of gravel, asks he", "Why, I'm going to place it around my tree" says she. The truck tore up the pavement digging up the street, there's grass growing, neighbors don't like it, dogs are pissing in it', so I"m going to put gravel to discourage it'... "As long as you're using it on City Property" says he. This is a scene from a Keystone Kop episode, Certainly, taking property from...egad!...the city..that doesn't belong to you should be punishable accordingly. Is there cause for real concern here? At the same moment as the cop stopped to give her the business, across the street, a guy in long dreadlocks and looking very unkempt was shining a light into cars looking for something.
Gee, Officer K, I hope you drilled him on why he was shining a light into cars that early in the morning.
While you're on intense patrol, be on the lookout please for the culprit that broke into the 2 homes in the 1800 block of S.19th Street and stole real items of importance to city dwellers. Those crimes have never been solved although it's been said that it's a very local culprit. Not as important as thievery from the city, I agree, nevertheless...

About Pennsport

Hi Pennsport, My wife and I are looking to buy a home in the 400 block of Moore St. area. In our research, though, we've noticed that in the past month there have been 2 shootings near that area and at least 2 more within a 15 min walk. Up to May though it seems Pennsport was relatively quiet. Trulia lists the crime as low relative to Philadelphia and other sites also claim crime in the area isn't bad.

We'd like some insider thoughts; homes in Philadelphia are getting up there in price and if possible I'd like to avoid a costly mistake. I look forward to getting some inside perspective.

  • Steven Buller Beer Jesus

    You don’t have to worry, a vast majority of the shootings have to deal with street beefs, they also are HIGHLY LIKELY to be targeted crimes. The average joe doesn’t get involved in shootings.

  • I'm looking to sell my house on moyamensing closer to McKean. We haven't posted the house yet but if you are interested in let me know.

Just a brief note about a dog park in Marconi Plaza....a dog park is costly to enclose in fencing and it must be maintained by an administrative group with rules and regulations. Our friends group does not have the personnel to initiate or maintain such an undertaking. Interested parties can approach this with the city and check out feasibility.

We have been receiving many complaints about dog owners allowing their dogs to run free off of leashes. This practice is against the law and can be dangerous to children and other dogs. Please have your dog leashed in Marconi Plaza, both east and west sides and please, pick up your dog's waste. Again, it is the law and it is common courtesy.
