It is bad for Riverside. Like I said, there are other neighborhoods to look into. The police are always alert in my neighborhood. Helicopters are a normal thing. just about every other corner house has graffitti. My home has been invaded by delinquents on several occasions. They have stolen my brothers bike, tried to break into the garage, and stolen bags of recycled water bottles. I live right in front of a baptist church and there are always homeless people sleeping on the doorsteps.

Right now I'm actually an parking lot security guard at couple different areas in Riverside. Since I been a security I've noticed how much people care about situation, and will make sure someone knows what's going on or get help.
If it were up to me, this would be the last area I would move into. Riverside is a large city with plenty of other neighborhoods to choose from. I do notice that the city has been making improvements to the roads and education. The crime rate does tend to fluctuate.
