A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "Were you concerned by the recent reports of violence in Princeton?"
"I am concerned. My daughter walks home from school some afternoons, so it has influenced the way that we have rethought that issue. We have always thought that Princeton was a safe town to live in. It does give me concern about where we allow her to go by herself."
Harriet Black, Mercer Street
"I am concerned about the violence not so much about what is happening now, but where this may be heading."
Matthew Freeman, Wiggins Street (Junior Firefighter, Mercer Engine 63)
"I am concerned about violence, but I do not know whether the reporting is blown out of proportion whether it's just the case of mild mischief or if it's really indicative of true violent behavior."
Laura Boyd, Cherry Hill Road
"I am not concerned at all. I think that it is only a sporadic thing that people are blowing this out of proportion by connecting it with gangs that I don't think it is an issue at all in Princeton."
Bob James, Evelyn Place
