    What should be done about it? Or are you just giving us some info to help us sleep better at night? Any other neighborhoods we should stay clear of? Or is this the only “bad” part of town? I ask this stuff because I live within the radius you have mentioned and hardly even hear police sirens. And I didn’t know we could call the cops for a suspicious person either. Boy can I keep them busy. Is there a certain criteria we should focus on though for suspicious? How do we know if the are suspicious enough to warrant a call? Maybe just do some profiling? Or how about a suspicious car? That’s even tougher. Can I call the cops when I see a cop car sitting in a parking lot with another cop car next to it and they re chatting. That always looks suspicious to me. Seems like they should be working instead.
