Here I thought I was over reacting in noticing what I felt to be
increase in crime!
I was told the reason the police do the random stops on the
neighborhood (mostly on First Street) is because they're afraid of
getting shot, so that was the easiest way to have some sort of police
presence in the neighborhood. I mean I understand to a point, no one
wants to be shot.
I don't want to believe what this person said.....but from the gunshots
in broad daylight the other day....to the fireworks that were being
set off around 9pm the other night in the alley....to the armed
robberies.....The only time I've ever seen police presence was driving
through the neighborhood. Unfortunately, I hate to think it, but I
don't even think another death is going to warrant more presence.
I agree with you....I am becoming afraid as well. It makes the sting
of the railroading we're getting on the stadium all that more painful.

I live in the 1200 block of Florida Ave NE and it has
come to the attention of several of my neighbors that
there are have been several armed robberies in the
alley behind this block and in the nearby vicinity
lately. These incidents have taken place in broad
daylight by 2 men.
It's getting so I'm afraid to leave my house here day
I'd like to know what sort of ongoing response we can
expect and what is being done about this currently.
The crime in this block has escalated in the past 4-6
mos. What does it take to get a bigger police presence
and/or cameras placed in our alley?
Thanks for your help.
