I'm not, there's been a growing problem in Huntsville and Madison, but the cities have been sweeping it under the rug because of it's image it wants or needs to sell. The more you have to face situations, the more arrest is made, and the higher the crime stats go up, so they rather not deal with crap untill it's time to call the meat wagon. I could have told you guys this several years ago. I lived in Madison, and Madison is supposed to be a desired area, but I saw drug dealing, theft, and had a guy get stabbed to death in a driveway just across the road from me. When you call the cops, they get aggravated like you are bothering them.
