But at night, it’s a different story.“From sex and drugs, to the only thing we haven't had yet is a shooting,” said Marty, who lives across the street from the park.
Marty, who doesn’t want to reveal his last name, said when the sun goes down, the park becomes a hotbed of illegal activity.“People are doing things in front of my house they won't do in front of their own,” he said. Marty put up a high-tech security camera on his property that overlook the park.“This is just a regular old county telephone pole I purchased,” he said.

The cameras have been up for about 10 of the 18 years Marty has lived by the park.
The high-tech system cost him several thousand dollars.
Four years ago, Marty started posting the videos on You Tube for his neighborhood watch group.“We're not going to sit back and let the neighborhood go to pot again,” he said.
“If we see something, we contact authorities."Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies have responded to several calls made by Marty.
They said as long as the cameras are on his property, Marty is not doing anything wrong.
But, Marty’s decision to share those videos online has drawn mixed reviews.“Even though it's in a public place, it's kind of an invasion of privacy in a way,” said Julie Mendez who lives nearby.“I think he's doing the neighborhood a service,” said Julie Smith, who lives around the block.
Marty said it's his duty to help keep his neighborhood safe and believes keeping a watchful eye is the only way to shed light on what happens in the dark.“They come over here to do it because they think it's safe,” Marty said.
CARMICHAEL -- It looks like something you might see on the kind of pay-per-view channel your hotel room remote might connect you to, but one Carmichael man says this isn't some naughty kind of show.
It's real life raunchiness too many people are bringing to the neighborhood he's called home for 18 years.
So what does this video camera crusader think the draw is to Hamilton Street Park?
"It's pretty much any park you go to," Marty complained.
