I've been following the crime situation in Ann Arbor, because I wanted to come back for awhile this summer. I'm re-thinking my plan. I use to live in Ann Arbor and now live in a city of approximately 1.5 million. I think there has been more burglary activity in Ann Arbor so far this year than in my far larger new hometown. I see a lot of complaints about the Mayor and City Council, but I'd bet that Ann Arborites will re-electing these people ... and expect different results. Until the townies start seeing their property values decline change will not occur. But don't wait too long to make changes; I've been observing via the FREEP the slow motion train wreck across town with the City of Detroit the last couple of years. It's not a pretty sight. Just think, it all started with unchecked criminal activity in the residential areas of the City. Don't wait too long!

"When the enterprising burglar's not a-burgling When the cutthroat isn't occupied in crime He loves to hear the little brook a-gurgling And listen to the merry village chime." Apparently Mr. Burglar has recovered from his flu.

If only college were more affordable, we wouldn't have these thugs on the street. They'd be stealing in broad sight on Wall St.

Lee; Please try to report on AA crime no more than one time per month. When you post an article like this, it wrecks all the "biased reporting" opinions out there. Your cooperation in this regard is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

At least is using the term "burglary" instead of the more sensational "home invasion" this time around....
