This is so upsetting and my condolences go out to the victims family. I remember when real men use to fight with their fist and not a weapon.

The crime rate in New London is atrocious. Decided to not raise a family in my hometown leaving 10 years ago and couldn't be happier. Many major crimes occurred over the years within blocks of my house since leaving. My parents are toughing it out. I follow NL Patch to catch the news before my mother calls about another busted classmate, murder, robbery, drugs, etc. :)

Just a typical evening in the Hip Little City on the Rise! The newspaper and Patch ought to publish the names of the landlords where these crimes occur and where the perpetrators live. I suspect folks would notice that the same landlord's names come up over and over. There are certain property owners who will rent to anyone - cash in advance (no taxes), no background check.

Thomas, the new london housing authority do not own or manage the winthrop square apartments. Facts are important. We have a 99% occupancy rate and most families living with us are working poor. Most problems come from people that do not live in the "poverty areas".

I agree with Sue, 99% of the issues in public housing are from the residents, its the people that feel they can hang out there. The residents of The New Londondon Housing Authority are good people. There are of course a few bad apples in every bunch, if you read the police logs every day, there are more arrests in all areas of the city other than housing property. just saying!

to correct my previous comment, issues are NOT from the residents,
