Blocking off a street and crime in Atwater

A Sunday afternoon mugging at gun point. Car break-ins and vandalism. Why has there been so much crime on Valleybrink Road in Atwater Village? Blogger Atwater Village Newbie thinks he knows why and offers a solution to the crime spree on the narrow street:

“How about we blockade Valleybrink and turn it into 2 dead-end streets? Landscape the new back-to-back cul-de-sacs. Call them pocket parks. Have 400 community meetings about it. But do something. Cut off the flow.”
