    Yes, less than 10 miles from the crime-infested hell of Lawrence!

    I don’t mean to blame the victims, of course, but why did they think it was good idea to leave their cars unlocked (and even leave keys inside!? huh!?)? Unfortunately, the seeming safety, tranquility and peacefulness of Princeton are but false notions. Being a sanctuary city and only 10 miles away from Trenton and Lawrence should be a warning signs to residents lulled into complacent comfort by their municipal leaders.
