I know that this response is far too late to help Dan, as that was posted back in April of last year, but in case it helps anyone else who might be finding this later...
My husband and I have lived in Millsmont for right around a year, and though we love our little house (we are renting), and our landlords are fantastic people who really care about the property and the neighborhood, and I know there are a lot of fantastic people in this neighborhood really trying to make/keep it nice, it is unfortunately not enough to keep us here.
Our house was broken into a few days ago, through a front window. About a month ago, a back window was broken with a rock, though no one came inside that time. One of the two incidents would be bad enough, but the two back-to-back have left us feeling extremely vulnerable and unsafe and paranoid, to the point that we hesitate to both be away from the house at the same time unless we're together and leave a car in the driveway. That is a bad feeling to have. We have been told, and statistics appear to back up, that once you have been burglarized, there is a high probability that you will be burglarized again, because the thieves now know that your house is easy to get into and that there is stuff worth taking, and if it's a pretty nice place, they also know that you'll have insurance that will replace what they steal, so if they just wait a few weeks, you will have replenished your home.
It is a very uneasy feeling to feel that your house has been cased and is probably still being cased. I feel very bad for my landlords, and for the rest of the neighborhood, because there really are good people here, and if good people get scared away, the neighborhood goes to seed. There are nice houses here, and it should be such a nice little community, that it's really sad to see it going bad. My landlords have lived next door for 25 years and say that it has gotten much, much worse even just within the last year.
