Community defense as police resources dwindle

Here's a link to a shtfplan.com post which discusses how neighbors are banding together in East Oakland, CA to patrol their own neighborhood to deter crime.  Police resources in their city have been dwindling and police response to the citizens's problems has been underwhelming.  The neighbors have been watching as crime gets worse and worse.  The residents believe they have to choose between doing nothing (and watching crime get worse and worse) or going out together to walk their neighborhood's streets to deter crime.
