420: Neighborhood Watch

Nov 19, 2010
It’s amazing just how much drama can take place in the mini-universe of a neighborhood. This week we bring you stories of neighbors watching out for each other, for better and worse, including a story from CBC's WireTap.
In one story, a mother goes to her neighbors with an incredible request—to help care for her son after she dies—and is shocked by their response. Also: One woman’s valiant effort to fight the ultimate neighborhood plague—dog poop.
  • Host Ira Glass Host talks to Paul Gereffi, a letter carrier in Ft. Lauderdale who helped save the life of a stabbing victim who saw Gereffi's mail truck and flagged him down. The strange thing, says Gereffi, is how many people saw the victim grappling with his assailant in a parking lot but did nothing to help him. (6 1/2 minutes)CrimeJobs/EmploymentPolice
