In light of the Trayvon Martin case—a Virginia Beach community is on edge because of a pistol-packing neighbor who says he is neighborhood watch.

But is he patrolling for creeps—or just plain creepy?

It simply depends on who you talk to at the Holland Farms subdivision.

It came to a head recently when one woman called police on the pistol-packing neighbor.

She said she was scared out of her wits when she saw a man identifying himself as neighborhood watch with a gun and a dog in her driveway at midnight.

Some neighbors are fearful that a pistol-packing unsanctioned patrolman is an accident waiting to happen. There are also supporters who feel he’s helping to curtail crime.

Is this risk worth the reward?

Tonight at 6, hear the pros and cons -  and then you decide.
