It's sad how fast this town is declining. I know some very nice people in Edgewood that bought their first home there and were so happy and pround and now feel trapped in a dangerous place. No one wants to buy a house there now so the ones trying to get out can't sell. The "gangs" have taken over just about every neighborhood. They walk right in the middle of the road and pretty much dare you to hit them. All you can do is drive through and pray no one shots you. I don't know what steps the town is taking to try and cap this problem but it doesn't seem to be working.
