What idiots!! Did they think their company would not notice THOUSANDS of dollars in inventory disappearing? And not trace the inventory to the trucks that they were driving? Glad they got caught! IDIOTS!!!!!!! View Comment
Maybe technically they cant get arrested unless they're "caught in the act"? Not sure..sadly I dont think arresting the prostitutes is going to do much..they will go right back again and again. Not condoning it by any means but I think we have bigger problems.. View Comment
I agree and Timmy must live in a very nice neighborhood that he can sit in front of his computer for what appears to be hours on end and whine about how no crimes get solved. Maybe he should come to my house and see that there is heavy police surveillance in my neighborhood 24/7. The police are out there all hours day and night and finally at long last my street feels safe again, I can walk my dog or go talk to a neighbor or finally FINALLY get a full nights sleep without having to wake up two or three times to call the police because there are fights or drug sales in front of my house. They have always reacted quickly, they know what theyre doing and have found guns on my street, questioned people who hang around there and ID them and make sure theyre not up to any questionable activities. They dont sit around eating donuts and anyone who feels that they can say the police "do nothing", well, lucky for you you don't have teen thug gangs as neighbors and you can live peacefully in your safe little blissful world of ignorance.

Well, this is certainly an interesting thread. I grew up in Stamford and have zero desire to return there. Ive lived in Norwalk for 8 years and am at the stage of my life where I am looking to buy a home in which we will eventually raise a family. I have been considering Norwalk as my top choice because 1- I like it here and 2- I can sort of afford it. Ive been told to RUN, not walk, away from buying here because of the schools. The schools, the schools, oh theyre horrible, you're crazy, dont do it. What I've observed is that the people who tell me this either do not and/or never have lived in Norwalk, or grew up in a more affluent, less diverse town ie Westport, Fairfield, Monroe. The small handful of people I know who are FROM here or DO live here and have kids in the schools, ALL are be very happy with the schools, and the teachers, and so are their kids. And I am far from done with my due diligence in asking around.
Sure, I can move to Fairfield and have my kid be the poor kid in the class. My parents sent me to an overpriced, overrated private high school in Stamford where I was that kid and let me tell you, it sucked. Being judged as a kid whether you're a have or a have-not sucks. Those kids are VERY aware of material items, and not for nothing, I wouldn't want my 14 year old coming home crying that some girls made fun of her cheap Coach handbag because it wasnt Gucci, this happened to someone I know in Westport. So hey, if you can afford to live comfortably in Westport or Fairfield, by all means go for it. But bear in mind that the possible financial burden you are considering taking on for what you think is a better education can come back and bite you in other ways and be extremely hard on your kids. It doesn't matter how many times you explain to them that you had to give up XYZ so that they could have a better education when they are so preoccupied with fitting in via luxury items that it batters their developing sense of self and skews their reality.
Just my 2.5 cents ;) View Comment
