Sneaky Sneakers


Talk about hidden messages...



Here are two items from Speakout, the Press-Republican's forum for comments from readers via email, that appeared together on March 25, 2012:


Sneakers
Why are there sneakers over power lines in Plattsburgh? Two answers possible: First, it's a prank. Or more often than not, it's a gang marking their spot where they do their illegal business. Yes, even Plattsburgh has a gang problem, although most people don't recognize it.


Gangs

Sneakers on wires are to recognize gang activity in the area, supposedly. I once heard it was to signal to one gang that there was already a gang in this area.


So two pairs of sneakers on the same powerline: Turf war!
