    I live in that area, and it is the drugs that are infested, in that area.
    The crack heads smoking right in front of my door and the dealers are also there.
    There most be more police in that area , to combat this problem.
    I can sit in my window and see every deal go down, from weed ,to the crack sales.
    The police must show up and be present, or more shooting will take place . or will a kid get shot for just walking down the street, being at the wrong place ,at the wrong time
