SAN ANTONIO -- Tens of thousands of neighbors are coming together to fight back against crime on National Night Out. Members of the Westend Hope Action Organization were going door to door and talking to neighbors face to face in the Lincoln Heights Courts.
People passed out "Hot Spot Crime Sheets" for neighbors to report illegal activity, although police said people should call 911 in case of emergency.
"It has been like re-living the dream of Martin Luther King," Erma Tate Harris said. "We want our children and grandchildren to see that promised land. We don't want to see them killed by drugs. It's not for black, white, Spanish. It's for everyone!"
Tate Harris spoke to several neighbors, including Guadalupe Huerta, who said she's tired of the crime outside her front door.
"You can't invite friends over because they're too afraid to come over. 'Where do you live?' Lincoln Courts. 'Oh no, I'm afraid to go over there,'" she said.
Members of the Westend Hope Action Organization plan to walk through neighborhood hot spots with San Antonio Police Chief William McManus next month.
