Crime down at Sesame Place, despite attack on costumed character

Posted Monday, August 11, 2003 5:33 AM | Contributed by Jeff

While police interventions at Sesame Place hit 51 for the 2000 season, the park has had only 14 total this year. The park attributes the decrease to parking lot patrols and an increased security and police presence.

Usually, when someone starts going on about the "sad state of America", I leave the conversation due to lack of interest. However, this time I'd have to concur. I'm glad the state of the park is improving, but it's ultimately depressing that a children's park requires full-time police surveillance. :(

Im not "depressed" about it but it is sad. It is good that the park is taking care of the problem, and maybe some of the "bad apples" will leave.

Wow, when I read the headline on the home page, I thought this was something from our friends at Absolutely Reliable News and Rumors. :)

However, as some have said, this really is a reflection of the sad state of America. :(
