Within the past month there have been three armed robberies take place within two miles of my home that I am aware of. Just two weeks ago, a man attempted to break into my neighbor's home. A large heroin epidemic has swept over my town. Police are typically visible and drive around our streets often. However, when they are called they take a little while to arrive at the scene. I'm worried about the youth that are growing up in this town that is nothing like the one I grew up in. I'm worried about local store employees, and the safety of them and their patrons. I worry for the officers that have to deal with these criminals every day, and risk their lives to protect us. I am worried about my family, and the uneasiness that we all feel.
