ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A resident frustrated by all of the crime is now calling on community leaders to take action.

Thomas Miles has lived in Albany for 19 years and says he has never seen the crime in and around the city get this bad. He is now calling on everyone in the community to step-up and take back the streets.

"We got to get out in the streets like we did in the 60's when we fought for Civil Rights. We got to get out and march. And I am challenging the ministers, business owners and city leaders or whoever wants to be a part of this to take back the city of Albany," said Miles.

Miles said the only way to curb crime in the community is by everyone stepping up to mentor the youth. And we need to remind them that crime will only lead to two places: in jail or dead.
