14 Year Old Boy Victim of Latest Pottstown Shooting
POTTSTOWN, PA – Only two days after Pottstown Police Chief Mark Flanders attended the Neighborhood Watch Meeting and only four days after he and Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman reassured residents that we are “doing OK”, the sound of gunfire was heard once again in the downtown. This time in broad daylight on a beautiful sunny November afternoon and a young boy was the victim.
The Mercury has already posted a brief mention of this afternoon’s latest chapter of violence:
We’re doing OK? This is OK??
Chief Flanders’ contract is up next month (on December 31). Contact the Mayor. Contact your Council representative. Tell them you’re fed up and demand change.
Pottstown needs new leadership…and we need it NOW. Regardless of the sunshine and puppy talk from last Wednesday’s community meeting, the Pottstown Police Department DOES NOT have a handle on this dangerous escalating situation. Now gunfire is occurring in broad daylight and casualties are becoming monthly statistics.
