1 of 38 in April

Deborah Hirsch just moved to Elizabeth when a stranger stuck a gun in her face outside her apartment. Read her account in the Observer.

According to police there were 38 "incidents" in Elizabeth in April, including two armed robberies, two auto thefts, three commercial burlgaries, one residential burglary and one rape. I've lived in Elizabeth for 20 years. My home has been broken into three times. My car has been stolen twice.

What does it say about us that this is normal?

Apparently this is not an isolated incident. News14 was reporting 3 similar holdups in Mint Hill...the men were also driving a van. My wife's manager was held up at gun point in Piper Glen. Nobody is immune.
