In an isolated corner of East L.A., weapons fit for a militia are stockpiled behind closed doors and police refuse to conduct foot patrols because they says it's too dangerous. This is the Drew Street neighborhood, and residents take their lives in their own hands when they leave their homes each day.

Rob Schmitz reports for KQED.
