    What is going on with Huntsville. Everyday or two someone is killed. How many is that this year? Something needs to be done and fast.

  • Angie says:

    I have to agree with Tammy on her comment. I would not live in Huntsville no way with all the killing going on and robbery’s nightly. It’s sad what this world has come too.

      I guess that includes the trailer parks where trailer trash like yourself reside !! Like I said Crime is everywhere… silly @@@ folks and I would rather say something else, but I won’t entertain your drum @@@!!! Now Ghetto that !!

  • Doesn't care says:

    Honestly I wouldn’t rather live anywhere else but huntsville . Yes , we have ignorint and belligerent youth running around . There is bad in huntsville and there is good also . You can’t live in fear , there’s crime everywhere you go . And perticullery I love my crime filled HOME .

  • Karinttt says:

    Having lived in other states and places, Huntsville is still one of the safest cities I’ve ever known. This recent rash of crime isn’t consistently going on all the time. We sometimes have weeks where nothing happens. And, not all this is happening in Huntsville. The local news area coverage here includes the whole county and beyond and isn’t just what’s happening in Huntsville. I think that when the statistical data is out for analysis and includes the whole year those crimes that actually happen in Huntsville, won’t prove out to be as high as someone might think by viewing the headlines and not looking at the location of the actual crime.

    Try living in Miami where you see news like this so often, you don’t bother to waste time commenting on it. Huntsville is nice…

  • Sunshine 99 says:

    I have also lived in other cities & states, but for a city this size (Small) it is an awful lot of violent crime . Not sure what the solution is – better or more police protection , more drug unit cops, or n ‘hood watch ????

    If all law abiding citizens were strapping, that would put a huge dent in the thug problem.

  • JDF says:

    I tend to ignore the comment section of internet posts because you expose yourself to such random foolishness. However, as a Huntsville transplant, I too have noticed in the last year especially, a surge in crimes whether it be shootings and/or robberies/ burglaries. However, let’s be very clear, it does NOT just occur in the “ghetto” or “trailer park” and has involved individuals of all races. The only seperation should be that of law abiding citizens and criminals. I work for everything I have ever had, as does my peers and am just as concerned regardless of what area I live in. I could care less where it is happening, with the bigger issue being that it is happening and needs to be addressed.

    I hate typos…. *separation

  • a knife to a gun fight..classic

    Its not neccesary a ghetto. Mexicans took over down that way

  • renee71 says:

    I am from Flint Michigan. Crime doesn’t get any worse than it is there. I have to say that it does vary quite a bit we go weeks with nothing of major violence than weeks where there is a lot happening all at once seemingly. I hope something is done so Huntsville doesn’t become what FLINT is.

  • slm says:

    I’m not suprised..huntsville is the new birmingham

  • Joyseee says:

    Just like you make crazy comments. Can also help. Start a community watch or put all your talk into saying something postive. NO ONE is perfect! Someone died! it can happen anytime, anywhere! Stay prayed up and keep the faith! Because it could have been you, your brother, your cousin or your father…. Everyone have their own opinion.

  • Decatur Lady says:

    Jordan was stabbed first!!! Innocent until proven guilty! Mr. Mark Mcdaniel on duty!!!

  • jhughes says:

    Either way it go, Huntsville is getting crazy by the minute. Too many deaths this year. Things have got to get better.

  • Wait wasn’t the suspect shot last week in the Benchwarmer shooting? Jordan Durrell Baker
