More violence for Glens Falls. Nice community.


Yea Glens Falls is a nice community, this sort of thing happens everywhere, and when you read a small Local newspaper like The Poststar its going to look like the area isn't as nice as it is because of the focus on local news. Don't like what you read about where you live? Move no one is forcing you to live in the area.

To the poststar, How can you let comments like this get posted, it serves no purpose, and adds nothing to start a decent conversation about the issue at hand.


Knife attacks are not exceptable behavior, and normalizing it does nothing to address the real problem that Glens Falls has; the increasing level of serious violent incidences is a legitimate issue. These kind of crimes were rare until the past few years. My family has lived in warren county for over a century. I am appalled by the increase in domestic violence in warren county. I think that my concern is justified in light of the danger tha they pose to victims, as well as innocent bystanders, and even police officers who must respond to these emergency calls.
