South Philly Mom Galvanizes Community To Take On Crime

Sarah Glover at NBC 10 Philadelphia wrote a piece on a South Philadelpia mom who is taking on crime.

Carol Lanni has turned to social media to fight crime and protect her South Philadelphia neighborhood.

Lanni started a Facebook page, Taking Back Our South Philadelphia Streets Back, just days after her 11 year-old son was robbed earlier this month.

"I started this page out of total frustration,” said Lanni.

"My child was mugged on Saturday, August 3. Thank God he wasn’t killed, hurt or harmed. I never feared the South Philly streets until it was this close to home.”

The single mother of three said her son was surrounded by a group of teens who stole his iPhone. The boy was on his bike with another friend, just around the corner from his house on Oregon
