Detroiter says her street has been seized by thieves, vandals, and drug dealers

Abandoned Detroit home
What was that about Detroit's comeback?

From Fox Detroit:
Detroit's police chief spoke out Monday after a recent string of violence and unveiled a new plan to fight crime.

One homeowner says he can start on her street where she routinely witnesses people breaking the law and says police are doing nothing to stop them.

"I don't want to get involved either," said Monique Kelly Robinson. "I don't want this at my house."

But Robinson, who owns one of only a couple houses still occupied on Faust Street in Detroit - feels she has no choice. Her neighborhood has been inundated by vandals stealing any metal they can find. Vacant garages have become hiding places for stolen stripped cars.
And at all hours of the day drug deals are taking place.

And that's just one street.
