    I work in st louis law enforcement, no with the police though. Whats going to happen is the police will spend a week in the area and the criminals will lay low. Then when the police ” hot spot ” another area, crime will return to its high rate up and down Goodfellow

      That wouldn’t work at all. What you would get is a lot of property damage and several high speed chases where the suspects get away like usual…

    I’m a resident in well good fellow neighborhood and I called the police to report a burglary in progress. The police never showed up.

      James, that means you did all you could to stop a crime, a person can only help the police so much, they have to do their part and showing up is part of it.

    That wouldn’t work at all! What you would get is a lot of property damage, and more high speed chases. You think criminals care about a road block??? Furthermore,if they can avoid cops in plain clothes, I’m sure they can avoid a checkpoint.
