    Media please do more than publish official data from City Hall. Ride the streets, ask citizens to contribute thoughts on what would solve the problem. Then...hold the system to task. It is ridiculous when the police say there is no citizen involvement in some neighborhoods. Even when we drown d them with evidence they refuse to enforce the laws. Sometimes they witness something and later recant and deny they saw the event.

    Those are the news that need to be discussed. We need the info that is censored to be transparently released so the public can know the truth and therefore help solve the problem permanently.

    Let the media go to hotspots and take shots of high crime areas and write articles about their experience.
