Another example of how Ithaca is sliding down the long chute into being a crime-ridden cesspool that typifies Democratic-party run cities like LA, San Francisco, NYC, Detroit, Chicago, etc. When you're soft on criminals and want to be outright hostile to the police, this is what happens. Ithaca used to be a great place to live. Then Democrats descended on it like locusts.
