"2nd and Jackson"

If you are thinking about living at or around 2nd and Jackson...DON'T!!!!!! I have lived here for 7 months now and I'm breaking my lease and getting the hell out of here. This neighborhood is very unwelcoming to new comers. The neighborhood kids sit on my step and when I ask them to move they throw stuff at me, cursed me out and even went as far as to tell me they will break in and rape me. Almost every night they throw stuff at the house (basketballs, rocks, traffic cones, snowballs, soda, bottles, etc). They start fights with anyone who walks down the street and throw stuff at cars. I have not had a good nights sleep since I moved here. I've talked to the neighbors and they said this is normal and to ignore it. I have called the cops numerous times, have 5 police reports, 3 roll-call complaints and nothing has stopped this. My front door have black marks at the bottom from the kids kicking it, the lock has been knocked out of alignment from being hit so much, and they have split the wood of the door by throwing huge chunks of ice. My landlord even put a fence around the front of the house and that still did not stop them. There is a park across the street that they hang in and when it closes at 10pm they come to my house and torture me. I can not leave or enter my house after 10pm. I have heard similar stories from surrounding streets, its not just my place. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT MOVE HERE!!!!!! I can not believe I stayed this long.
