It's a sad day in Williamsport! It is hard to believe that our nice city is on its way to destruction. I believe that the citizens of Billtown close their eyes to what is really happening. For the last 25 years, we have watched crime increase in our city and citizens have not believed that crime was here, so nothing was done about it. If people recall, crack cocaine was a problem and gangs were on the rise. Unfortunately, a young man was shot down in Williamsport and the citizens were outraged. Committees were formed; however, they did not last. A few men have been shot and killed since then. People seemed unconcerned with the crime and drugs that are not a major problem in our city. We must move forward.
