My #1 suggestion as a country Bumpkin... Move
not a bad idea though lol

In all reality is get involved with the community
and do something nobody does anymore... get to know your neighbors... its not a bad thing
and that way when things do happen you have people who know you and more then likely will help you

I live in roxbury, and it seems like these people will just kill one another for whatever reason. I have had a few friends get jumped and beat up a little and some have been robed but none shot or stabbed. Just keep to yourself and don't carry cash.

We will just call the police if absolutely anyone looks suspicious, the town is dangerous you just need to be very cautious of your surroundings.

I would contact the city, write the mayor. I would try starting a blog with the neighborhood, set everything up online, then put notes in mailboxes. Keep everyone up to date.

nice pun. too bad nobody would buy it... the landlords who own the places sure aren't going to shell out the cash, and neither are the tenants. Siding is expensive enough as it is, sadly.

I guess you could move. Arm yourself.
