I read with great amusement as usual that murder profiteer Joe Albero claimed all crime in Salisbury was due to Chief Webster, Barrie Tilghman and " bloggers" me of course, who wouldn't put the truth out about crime.
I know more about the crime issues in our town from having been part of many Crime Task Force Meetings and walks through all the troubled Neighborhoods in Salisbury. The difference is I have never used crime as a political tool to go after people aka Debbie Campbell ,Joe Albero and Terry Cohen.
Salisbury's crime issues like the rest of the nation have increased over the years, so the problems were just as bad when Coulbourne Dykes was Chief. The economy and unemployment have gotten worse in the past 15 years which studies show goes hand in hand with crime spikes. The Salisbury City Council did not get any of what Allan Webster asked for to help fight this rise.
The group mentioned are very good At sitting back and bitching and moaning about everything but never offer any solutions except throw renters out. It is time to stop the bs political games and actually create solutions that will help bring our City back to life.
