The usual hot spot in Betlum, the area in and around Livingston St., Fritz Drive, and all of the other "Marveenish" behavior areas around the best that gubmint has to offer, gubmint housing... ...Where the dregs of society congregate and fester. And the Betlum police have to dedicate a whole squad (your tax dollars) to handle. Which way do you think these folks vote, if they vote at all? All for the pretend concern by the left who couldn't continue on if they actually solved the poor and poverty issues that face our nation. As the cretin veep said, "keep y'all in chains!". Yep... But the politcally blind on the left, simply do not see it, much less comprehend it.

Oh here we go....bringing in all the political stabs. You sound like an angry conservative, and blame the democratic party for everything. Is this area a hot spot for crime in Bethlehem (or Betlum as you call it), I agree it is, as a lot of public/subsidized housing (or gubmint housing as you ignorantly say) sadly is. I never comment on these things but your post is so typically uneducated. Maybe thats how you wanted it to sound, but it really shows the lengths you will go to blanket what you really want to say (and I am pretty sure I know what that is), so get some guts and just say it! There is trash that lives in your so called "Marveenish behavior areas", but guess what, there are bad people everywhere. There are also good people everywhere, including those areas you feel are infested by the dregs of society..... You obviously never lived in different areas of this great nation, because guess what, the Lehigh Valley as a whole, is very safe. Also, per your interpritation of the area I am proud to be one of the dregs of society. Lived in the village myself in my childhood, and guess what? I am not a criminal, I have fought for this country and serve my community, I have never been to prison or on welfare (neither where my parents), I graduated high school, I raise my kids right, and I pay my taxes just like you....yeah and I am a democrat too. LOL
