An Oregon community fed up with rising petty neighborhood crime and dissatisfied with police response has taken matters into their own hands. They’ve organized a citizens’ watchdog group – armed with Glock handguns and ready to protect their property.
Their pamphlets, posted in noticeable spots around town, states: “This is a Glock Block. We don’t call 911,” KOIN.com firstreported.
The community is Jennings Lodge, located in Clackamas County. And the fliers aren’t just idle warnings.
Community members have actually pursued conceal carry permits in order to fend off the crime wave, which includes everything from stolen lawn ornaments to vandalism, the Daily Mail reported.
“We’re starting a new group,” said Clackamas County resident, Coy Toloman, in a KOIN report. “We don’t feel neighborhood watch is sufficient, and we don’t feel the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is sufficient.”
