Residents of an Oregon town feel their local sheriff is not doing enough to prevent crime, so they are taking matters into their own hands.
Coy Toloman is helping to push the new initiative. She got her concealed carry permit after a statue was stolen off her front porch right in front of her.
“We’re starting a new group,” Toloman said. “We don’t feel neighborhood watch is sufficient, and we don’t feel the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is sufficient.”
Even though most of the crime in the neighborhood is not particularly violent and includes instances like stolen lawn ornaments or vandalism, residents have simply had enough.
