DUMBO Posse Blog-Battles Car Window-Smasher

DumboNYC is pleased: they had announced that car window smashing, sometimes involving burglary, had grown epidemic in their neighborhood, and now the old-style media are noticing it too.

The Brooklyn Paper has already run the story, and DumboNY says CBS2, NBC4, and cw11 are working on it.

DumboNYC says they're also getting some action from the 84th Precinct, a spokesman for which "says that they will increase the number of plain clothed officers to patrol the streets." Commenter Sign Poster has posted a Google Map of the smashes to date for reference.

We'll keep watch and see if citizen journalism can actually roll back a crime wave.
