It seems that Newtown has an over abundance of Paranoid people. I pity the police, to have to constantly address these rediculous calls. Newtown needs charge for every house call, maybe then those " Gladys Kravitz" neighbors will stop reporting every car or person they don't know.

Agree. Society Place is ground zero. It's in the police blotter almost every week.

Had my tires slashed last month and woke up this morning to a decomposed squirrel strategically placed on my walk. I live in Society Place Sandy. There are prejudice as well as paranoid people in this world and the police are paid to serve and protect. Know the facts before making your clever TV analogies!
