Robbed in Eldersburg - Carroll Community Bank

I can't wait to read the whiny comments to the people that think we should resign ourselves to the spike in crime that is occurring throughout South Carroll.  I can already hear, "Crime happens everywhere."  "This is still a wonderful area."  "It's George Bush's fault that people have to resort to crime to support their families and move forward."  Yadda-yadda-yadda.

Eldersburg suffered yet another robbery.  This time the Carroll Community Bank was robbed by three men in the middle of the afternoon.  If you're not familiar with CCB, it's between Exxon on the corner and the Verizon store and Qdoba.  You know, with the annoying blue LED sign intended to distract drivers.

I'm not going to argue that Eldersburg is not a nice place to live, but you cannot deny the fact that crime is on the rise here.  And if the crime continues, people that can afford to move will move farther out Liberty Road will do so.  Those who cannot afford to move will stay and learn to live with a lower standard of living, just like the nice folks in Randallstown had to do in the 1970's and 1980's.  This certainly isn't going to happen over night.  Or next year.  But that is the trend.  Ten years perhaps?  Sooner?

So can we buy guns and arm ourselves for the invasion?

You sound like a grouchy old fart complaining about everything you have no control over...even the electric sign the bank uses. With Baltimore to the East and D.C. to the south why are you so surprised?
