That neighborhood has to go.

Thank you! "That" neighborhood has been my home since 1979!

A lot of very good and hard-working people have lived there for a long time, and have been working to make things better. It's pretty quiet there most of the time and people look out for one another.

You are so right Tim and thank you :)

Well tim lemke if you live in chapel gate then y'all would know that its always quiet in this neighborhood so for y'all that thanks its a whole lot of gang bangers out here then y'all clearly don't know what a gang banger is so for y'all to say that shows the ignorance that y'all have against African Americans

I've been in Odenton over 40 years, I know Chapelgate very well. I saw Piney Orchard go in where I used to ride my back as a kid, and in with it came troublemakers from the outside. Same recently with all the new sub divisions going in here and there around Odenton. On my street we had enough trouble. We reported suspicious activity, we confronted loiterers and sometimes it got ugly. We made it clear that nonsense wouldn't be tolerated. We took it back and the good people of Chapelgate should do the same.

Javon, You're showing a great deal of ignorance yourself. Your post is the first one to reference African Americans yet you assume that is what everyone is discussing. Presumptuous much?
Shanna December 11, 2013 at 08:16 AM
Just ignore Double D's comment. All he does is sit on his computer and post negative comments and nick picks at what everyone says. He has no life. Javon collins all I can do is SMH over that comment. Where did anyone say anything about African Americans or gang bangers? Come back to earth honey. Procto ofsaryrn, we are working on taking Chapelgate back but everyone just joined forces a couple of months ago. We haven't even gotten all our ducks in a row. We are trying to get organized so we can be sufficient at getting the nonsense out of our neighborhood.

Shanna I don't always post negative comments, I have posted several positive comments (Can't wait for Buffalo Wild Wings). I wish you and your fellow neighbors luck in trying to take back Chapelgate, but the fact that there is a need to take it back means that there are problems. Bottom line is that Chapelgate has been in the news a lot lately and not for parades and picnics. Good luck and for the sake of Odenton residents I hope you succeed.

Is there a "crime war" of some sort going on in Chapel Gate? Every time I read Patch there appears to be a daily escalation of violent crime in that neighborhood. Am I wrong or did not someone just a few weeks ago fired a rifle into the living room window of a home where a couple with their child were sitting watching TV? Now a teenager is murdered in his own home. And all people are worried about is the tarnished image of the neighborhood. Wow. I'd be more worried about who is going to be next.

It's not the people of Chapelgate who create the trouble. It's the people that come to Chapelgate from other parts of Odenton to do their share of "dirty work" to make the people here look bad. Living in Chapelgate for almost 10 years, I must say that it has changed. But AAPD has helped to clean it up around here. This neighborhood is home for many people, so to say that 'it has to go' is very insensitive & unrealistic. Only someone from the outside looking in would say something like that.

Miss Jones, I have to say that your comment doesn't make sense to me. Admittedly I am someone from the outside, but it seems to me that people would not come to that neighborhood to do their "dirty work" unless they knew that at least some of the residents there would accommodate such activities. I do agree though that saying it has to go is not at all helpful.

Javon, I'm really not trying to be mean. "Y'all" is not a word, its "you all."
