I like the fact this neighborhood sticks together no matter all the tragedies they see, that does not stop the togetherness.

Kids breaking into homes, not cool at all. These parents need to learn how to keep a better eye on their kids. Other than that my street is generally quiet.
crime in Louisville, KY goes up and down all the time but within the last three years it has been horrible. no matter what neighborhood you go to there is crimes taken place; some more often than others. my neighborhood in particular has been increasing quickly and i don't believe we have enough protection. the police patrol areas where the crime rate is low when i feel like they need to focus on the areas where its worse than others. i don't feel safe and i feel like anything could happen at any given time because police in the area are not doing their jobs. I've also noticed the the victims are getting younger, finding suspects are vary rare and the community trying to help others solve crimes in our neighborhood had also decreased because they are in fear of their lives.
