I suggest a few cameras and a good rifle or handgun and training if you know nothing about the two.

"The people responsible for this are a growing mutant segment of our society that consider such things as stealing and trashing just fine. They are growing like cancer, and difficult to stop." - Francine

Fortunately, "they're" an easily-identifiable color (as usual), right??

Once again Shaman you see racism in everything. You are part of the problem with race relations in this country.

You just gotta bring out that race card, don't ya? So how many of your neighbors are that "identifiable color"? Does your property suffer the same damages as the writer's? Would you welcome that kind of damage to your property from anyone of any color?

I tried using the store locator on the Wawa website. I believe the closest Wawa locations are Philadelphia and Allentown/Bethlehem. Huge surprise.

If that's what YOU think. I guess that's your opinion.

You are correct, Tgram, one only needs to take a ride in the country to see areas with trash strewn in yards filled with junk cars and other crap. One only needs to drive through some of the run down trailer courts outside of town. But Shammy and his ilk won't admit to that, it goes against their racial story. I live in the country and see this, but let's not let facts get in the way of a good fling of "racism", right Shamster?

Francine did not mention color. I have to agree with her there is a growing disrepect for other people's property. But I do disagree that it is limited to the city. I live outside the city but close by we have open spaces and wooded areas around us. You would not believe the trash people throw out their car windows or dump along the roadway into the gullies. We also find their abandon pets.

The closest WAWA, that I know of, is at the I80 exit off the turnpike's Northeast extension. Great subs.

When we lived on 87 I found the only thing that worked for us was security cameras, you would be surprised what they record.

In my area it is not unusually to have your mailboxes damaged. People driving through your property or driving by at a higher rate of speed than is allowed. We also find the cigarrette butts, empty beverage bottles, I have even found used ******s out in the road when walking which would exlain why they drove though the property and damaged the mailboxes and keep on driving.

Do what my friend in MD did, post a sign; "This property is under video surveillance. Littering is against city statutes and you will be fined 100.00. All video will be turned over to police that depicts you trashing my yard." He said it worked like a champ.

Bet we have all seen this behavior at the workplace. I work in industrial factory setting. I am always picking up after someone else. They don't sweep even though a broom is right there. They do not throw away the wrappers, empty drinking bottles, uneaten food in the trash can which is also close by. They can't replace the empty water bottle in the drinking fountain and then place back in the rack. They can't throw the used paper towels fom drying their hands into the trash can. They also can not flush a toilet. They will empty their ashtray from their cars onto the parking lot at work. This disrespect is everywhere.

We caught one guy taking a whiz by his machine and then walk over to the bottle water fountain to wash his hands. Needless to say he no longer works there.

Sham the racist,"Fortunately, "they're" an easily-identifiable color (as usual), right??"

This guys a bigger racist than all the members of the KKK, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson put together. We can't get through one discussion without him dragging race into it. The worst part is that he doesn't see his blind rage and hatred for what it is. He thinks he's the tolerant one.

Mr. Reeder you are correct, when I had my cleaning business I had several contracts for industrial cleaning and the office people were just as bad as the people in the shop and the bathrooms were always a nightmere, one factory I had in Montgomery was the worst place I had ever cleaned.

I don't understand why anyone wastes their time and energy reading and then responding to "MrShaman"! When was the last time he posted something that contributes to the discussion?

How about zoning off a section of the city for slums & drugs?
