SALT LAKE CITY When two people were stabbed one fatally in Salt Lake City's Pioneer Park in mid-October, area residents and business owners pleaded with police to clamp down on violence and drug activity at the park.

Though Salt Lake City police seemed to answer that call arresting 658 people in a 49-block sting between Nov. 5 and 10 police and Salt Lake County sheriff's officials said all the work probably won't put a big dent in the park's longtime problem with crime.
