Heck I'd like one too, but do they really need this:

How BIG of a crime problem is there?

Yeah, I guess they got that to control all the riots they have. What? They don't have any riots? Must be just a big "Boy-Toy" then? They must have nice taxpayers up there to pay for it.

Our local police department just got a robot thing that can climb stairs and go in and talk to the bad guys or presumably shoot at them too. Courtesy of Department of Homeland Security. Instead of spending money where it's needed to keep ports, refineries, and chemical plants safe, those idiots in Washington have made DHS a big slush fund to distribute cash for stupid toys like that, which probably won't work anyway.

The Poconos where that was purchased is where all the NYC and other transplants have moved too. I saw reports on the news where new developments in the middle of no where were being hit with graffitti.... :shock:

Same thing here as we have distinct situation. The elderly population in this area is very large. A lot of them live in these small very old homes. A lot of them might have been coal company homes many years ago. The kids have moved out long ago and when the parent dies no one wants the house. They can't get much money for them so someone from out of town or a "slumlord" will pick it up. Now I don't blame these people for wanting to get away from crime and violence but it follows them here. There's been many neighborhoods that have been turned into what I would term a slum over the last two decades. These were all decent places to live at one point. They aren't mansions but people had pride and the kept them up. The new people have no sense of neighborhood or if it's section 8 the landlord don't care as long as his checks keep coming in...

When I was kid A murder was big news in the Valley, you don;t have more than month go by now without something happening. Ineviatably someone that just moved here or in some cases not even from here..

Where I live specifically crime is still very low but the housing here doesn't fall into that category.

The cost was "Only around $1,000, and that was just to pay for the graphics. "?? Where was I when that job went out to bid? I'd love to do $250 worth of grapics and get a grand for it!!

Heck I saw ome of those (or at least very simular) in Andover, Ohio. I couldn`t believe it, the town for the most part is hardly big enough for one patrol car yet they apprently have several. Its nice to know that your protected but the tax dollar has to pay for it all, if its not needed they shouldn`t buy it. The population of Andover isn`t very high & drops during the winter months when the camp grounds are mostly empty, there must have been some kind of grant for them.

The change here in the poconos is pathetic. 1/2 mile away is the parking for the dozens of buses that transport the "work in NYC" crowd from 4am and midnite they finish. the amount of stuff that takes the ride is crazy.

they ought to have a drug sniffing dog check everything out and then one of those robots just shoot the culprit dead right there and things would change. oh yeah theres that change word..

its starting to really stink....

The local newspaper put this together:

Some of this is pretty serious stuff,
other incidents are about as serious as smashing a pumpkin...
