Folks we couldn’t make this stuff up if we tried, but we don’t have to.
We will continue to monitor the situation until something is done to stop this vigilantism type of rhetoric, as these comments are completely out of the norm. What is surprising about this issue is that your councilman, Todd Crandell, seems to be oblivious to the situation, which produces an oxymoron for the community group leader and some of his supporters.

“My neighbors and I in the Middlesex community are extremely pleased with the results and we appreciate the focused attention and follow-up maintenance we’ve received from the County,” said Clifford O’Connell, President of the Middlesex Community Association and leader of the Core Group, an umbrella group of some 15 to 20 community groups in the Essex, Middle River and Dundalk areas.

TheCoreGroup tries to stay focused on issues that affect our Communities. Rats, trash, vacant homes, unregistered rental properties, holding businesses accountable, etc.
We understand that you may have frustrations regarding elected officials’ decisions. No one can make everyone happy. TheCoreGroup has been successful because we like and respect the job they have to do under trying circumstances and we have made alot of friends on both sides of the aisle. We try to keep this page bi-partisan and a-political as we work with, and respect all elected officials. While we love to see your pictures and we read your posts and encourage everyone to participate, please refrain from posting comments disparaging any of our elected officials. We ask that you save those posts for your own personal pages. Thank you all for your understanding and participation and let’s work together to make our Communities the best they can be.
When will they admit crime is out of control in our communities? When will they admit we need more police officers? When will they admit the very small number of drug detectives in eastern Baltimore County is not enough. When will they admit what they call ” LOW PRIORITY CRIMES” are destroying our communities. When will they admit my idea of a motorcycle club or some type of a vigilante force patrolling our communities is the only choice they leave us.

In the end, as the saying goes, “If you see something, say something.”
We just did. Let’s just hope someone in authority is listening.
