It's not only after school. Again, I've also seen a large group of kids/teens traveling on State street between Robinson street and Kelton avenue area on multiple occasions between 6-8pm. Maybe more so when it's warmer.
As far as the disruptive behavior. Is it more of in numbers thing?
Do they get it from their Parents? Television? Politicians?
How come the near by surrounding towns don't seem to have this fairly common occurrence?

Reminds me of an incident I had approx. 10 years ago. I owned a two family house on Kelton avenue off Albany street. I was talking to my tenants in front of the house. My van was parked in the driveway, 10-15 feet from us. A large group of what seemed to be 40 or 50 kids. Aged 12-16? Walked right up to my van and opened the back door. I immediately yelled "Hey what do you's think your doing?" One or more of the youths replied," What ever we want!" I closed the van door and said, "I'm calling the police! Then again, one or more said to me,"you don't want to do that!" My tenants told me they didn't want any trouble. Anybody that used to walk or drive on upper State street in the late afternoon/early evening hours probably remembers the large group of youths that would be walking as it was a common occurrence. Doesn't sound like much has changed in the city.

What's Going on with the post a comment in the letters to the editor, " Metroplex not using our tax money wisely?"
I can see when the site editor removes comments. But then.. removes the ability for (All) to post a comment?

But the puppeteer feels that the taxpayers should pay.

The Good old days!
One room school houses. Horse and buggy.
Now, everyone carries a cell phone.
Internet this and Internet that.
Social media!
Soon the driverless cars will be everywhere!
Oh ya, bicycles and walking.
A World with No drive thru's.
Walking to work in the towns too? Much safer then walking in the city.
Even the cops don't want to walk to work or live in the city.

If the guy had a weapon? Or if the resident had a weapon, the outcome could of been much worse. I would have enjoyed to tase him..  I'm not sure what his intensions were? I don't think this was his first door he kicked in? He had a saws all on his front seat. Stealing copper not just for the scrap? Maybe to do intentional damage to the property to lower banks bid price? To see what to steal? Still uncertain at this point?
To repeatedly break into properties being foreclosed on just to check out property? Interesting business move/risk?
A poor man would get arrested! No excuse..   A business man/woman was just illegally (kicking in a door) checking out the property to bid on/buy?
