    Let's all try to do just a little bit better regarding violent crime in our City.

    One basic thing to do is to support the Police in doing routine policing. When the police get in to a violent conflict with open gang members, drug dealers - don't automatically go with the media, BlackLiesMatter side that the police are the bad guys.

    We have lots of bad guys in our city - they are called

    gang members.

  • Today's gang members are just parentless punks raised in the streets with a sixth grade reading level who feel that their lives have no value because of no FAMILY VALUES!!!!!
