Baton Rouge residents gather for 'Stop the Violence' rally

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Residents of Baton Rouge came together for a "Stop the Violence" rally Sunday.

Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie and District Attorney Hillary Moore joined residents in the hopes of helping them take back their streets.

The group marched down part of the 70802 zip code to get out the message to stop the violence.

Neighbors say they have seen everything from homicides to break-ins.

Dabadie told the crowd that he's tired of seeing crimes plague our streets.

"It's senseless. It's useless. There's no reason for it," said Dabadie. "No gun, no bag of dope, no nothing has ever solved a problem. We have got to get back to being able to communicate with each other and work out our differences."

Dabadie added that the police can't stop violence on their own and he's calling for residents to work with him to help stop it.
