Slight of Hand

This little bit of news hardly made a ripple:

State College & Johnstown Among The Safest Places To Live

You will notice that State College is #1 on this list. If you look at the crimes that were considered:
murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft, it's no wonder. No public urination, no drunk and disorderly, no DUI, no disturbing the peace and throwing items off of balconies, or jumping/falling from said balconies. Without those there would be nothing for the police to do here. So there you have it. As long as you stay away from drunk men in need of facilities, you're golden (no pun intended).

This while the town council is trying to figure out how to pass an ordinance that will make the hosts of parties responsible for damage their "guests" might do. The ACLU seems to think this is unconstitutional because it would inhibit .... are you ready for this ..... religious or political meetings. Those wild and crazy Baptists, I'm sure they're staggering down local streets after prayer meetings.....who knew?

Hee hee, yes. That's like comparing Newark (car theft, rape, burglar) to East Lansing (public urination, noise violations... I know exactly what you mean.

I heard a rumor that if the cops caught you peeing openly (at tailgating) they could put you on the sex offender list. Probably a bunch of malarky, but not a bad rumor to spread to cut down on public pissing! Ha ha!

Well, I guess better pissed off than pissed on….
