    If it's becoming a serious, serious burden, I'd suggest the Near West Side residents do what we do on the Far West Side. Many of us have invested in cameras for our properties including garages, alley's and rear decks. We also exchange phone numbers, talk to each other almost daily and anytime we see a strange face or suspicious person loitering in the alley or on our block we keep watch until they've left. And we make sure they see us watching them. In the morning before work we have coffee in the alley talk to each other as we pick up trash etc. The most important thing is to have an outdoor presence as often as possible.

    We rarely have break-ins or attempted break-ins on our block. Unfortunately, we have the corner drug dealers ruining our lives instead.

    Maybe get a gun and leave your door open... wink, wink.
