Are Miami police doing enough to curtail youth violence in Little Haiti?

Kenly Agledor, 19Beach attendant, Little Haiti I dont know because two of my friends just got killed [in Little Haiti]. I think they need to do more to stop the violence. Shereen Miller, 35Hairstylist, Little Haiti No. I think that some of them are contributing to the violence. Willie Howard, 53Unemployed, Little Haiti I dont think so. It should be more police presence. Marcie White, 50Retired, Overtown No. They need to boost up police [patrol] to stop the violence. Edna Scott, 75Retired, Liberty City I realize that it is very hard to keep up with all of the violence in the community. I know that they are working hard, but maybe it could be better. Gertrude Stewart, 70Retired, Miami Lakes The police are given too much responsibility and at the same time are expected to work miracles. Sometimes you just need to talk to your children because some of the responsibility starts at home.
