You report this same crap throughout the week and then highlight it every Saturday. You make it sound like Trenton is this God awful place to live. Patch needs to get a little more creative in the writing. I'm sure everyone's tired hearing about crimes and foreclosed properties. Get real....

Ron, Do you plan on complaining after every news rollup? Have you tried contacting Nate directly? I admit once we started disagreeing on a few concepts he did become unresponsive but at least try and be civil. If you don't like it, try one of the other dozen news sites, detnews, mlive, the freep, heritage news. The only thing more annoying than the ritual news rollups is your habitual whining.

I am sure Nate has seen my repeated comments. But apparently they think this type of negative reporting about our community is news worthy. I like many other people subscribe to Patch to stay in touch with events involving our town. Their elementary style reporting of everyday events that involve the police department is not something most people care to hear about, let alone read every Saturday. Especially after reporting it earlier in the week within hours after the event occurred. Then keeping with their lack of creative reporting skills they march down to the closest real estate office and ask for a list of new foreclosed properties in the city. Both tend to reflect negatively on our community. I have suggested reporting about the good things in our town. But it seems that all reporting agencies including the Detroit News, Free Press, News Herald and the local news stations would rather report on the ugly side of news. That being said, I will continue posting my displeasure with this negative, unprofessional style of reporting intended to simply fill space. Try to get a little more creative Patch.... If that's not asking to much...... Or approach the high school and get some new talent and ideas there.

are you kidding me, i love hearing about the crime in the city it keeps me informed on so i can take precautions. Ron if you wanna be "in the dark" try to not click on the crime part of the patch, there are other stories. keep up the good work Nate, I would rather know about the losers and what there up to. If we all know whats going on then its easier to bust them, Also I Love Love Crimemapping, GENIOUS

This reminds me of Big Bob Bashara of Grosse Pointe. Early on in the Free Press, a resident of there argued not to jump conclusions on whether he killed his wife or not. Said he knew him. That things like that (murder) just doesn't happen in the Pointes. I asked him to come back and comment after Bob was arrested and tried and convicted. .Crime happens everywhere these days. No one is immune to it. I for one am glad to at least be aware that the guy driving behind me appears to be following me.....or not.

Most of the so called "crimes" that they tend to report are minor in nature. Yes, none of are immune from crime and I would be silly for us to think so. Obviously, if their were a major crime that was committed in the community that would be something we would all want to know and hear about. But to keep reporting on previously reported crime related events again and again is ridiculous. Just today Patch reported the week in review. Not anything regarding good news stories but their crime related stories yet once again. Are they that desperate to fill the pages that they have to keep reporting the same old news over and over again? Why can't they get a little more creative? I'm sure there is plenty to report about between the two communities covered here by Patch. Why does their "week in review" rehash the old crime related reports from the previous week? High school kids could do a better job of reporting.....

I appreciate your feedback and understand your concerns. However, we have a duty to report on both the good and bad in the community. We will try to do more to shine the light on all of these stories.

Thanks for posting all that you do Nate. Being informed is powerful. It seems that some people would bury their head in the sand and act like crimes are not commited in our city. By you reporting these issues, the community can become more vigilant and help the TPD!

I won't pick on Ron because I also prefer to see more of the good than bad. However, someone did make the suggestion that if you don't want to read about the crimes then skip to something else. No one forces you to look at it. I feel pretty darn safe in Trenton (despite recent issues trying to get new home and car insurance within Wayne county). Anyway, Ron hang in there. I know pretty much all news seems negative these days but as Nate showed, there are plenty of positives that maybe you somehow missed. I would like to see more community involvement projects and things we can do to bring the city closer together. I was hoping to get some people together to clean up the parks this spring. So many people were complaining about it but they need to step up and take action.
