Editor, the Gazette:

I am losing faith in our police system.

I live on Allen Avenue and myself along with others  have called the
police several times on our neighbors.  It does not take a genius to
know it is a drug house.  Different cars are in and out all day long.
We have  even seen kids on bikes going in. The thing is, though,  it's
always the same thing. One person gets out of the  car while it is
running while the others stay in the  car. The main person goes in for
a few minutes and then  walks out. What do you think is going on?

We have several pictures of all of the cars, license  plates, and
people going in and out. We also have a  picture of a cop driving by
after we had called, but  doing nothing - even though as soon as the
boys saw the  cop, they jumped out of the car real quick and started
acting like they were looking at their car, like  something was wrong
with it.

I want something done! I have an 11-year-old child who  does not need
to see this, and there is also a school  right across the street.

What needs to happen for something to be done about  this? I know drug
activity can go on no matter where  you live, but come on! We do not
live in a nice  neighborhood to sit around and watch drug dealers get
away with whatever they want while the cops do nothing!
