I am concerned about charges such as public drunkenness as I see it frequently used as a violation which to me speaks to an overactive and punitive form of policing. I would say lets give each other breaks,attempt to create a place where our children can grow and change and be unique individuals. My conversations with the youth of Abington does not uncover this perspective. Many of our kids are seem bored,lack a creative hope and a great deal are self medicating. This town will not be great based on the input of money magazine. It will only be great once it realizes the potential in feeling the creative possibilities associated with a liberated perspective. So How can we become more connected? Thanks, Dennis O'Brien
