We live in the suburbs. Our house is on the corner of two very nice leafy green streets lined with families.
The view outside my kitchen window is a street that runs along the side of the house. About twice a week a kid from up the street comes and stands opposite my kitchen window and waits. He is probably 15 or 16. After a few minutes a car drives up, same car every time, and a covert exchange is made through the car window.
We have hedges that line the side of the house that provide privacy, as do the people across the street from us, which is probably why the kids chose this spot to make their transaction: the "purchaser" is hidden from his family. Occasionally the kids see me watching them through the window. I stare them down.
Anyway, what do you recommend we do? Do we call the police and ask them to step up patrols? Do we call when we see the kid standing there waiting? We don't want to ruin any one's life or give them a permanent police record, but I don't really want my kids to see drug deals (which I think it is pretty obvious this is) .
