"This community has gone through a lot when it comes to a rise in crime and we right across the street from the police station. Right there, I can see the sign from here. And I've called them before about the crime and they basically told me 'Well we don't have enough patrol officers for this area,'" the man said after checking on his mother who still lives in the neighborhood.
