The police do what they can, but there are so many more signs of decline. Burglaries and petty crime is more common today than it was several years ago. There have been several homicides within 1 mike of my home I am concerned for my safety today.

It has been a great experience living in this area, however you can see and feel the change for the worse as crime rises and schools decline.
Nite Life is quiet around here.
