This is disturbing to me, I can't say I'm feeling great about this much drug and gun activity is going on in my neighborhood. I joke about participating in vigilante activities in Danbury but maybe it's time to march up and down the streets with other concerned citizens and pull some Guardian Angels like rotations, patrolling the neighborhood. You gotta let them know you're there.
