NC district attorneys present plan for safer state

CHARLOTTE, NC (WWAY) -- District Attorneys across North Carolina came to Charlotte Thursday to push for a safer state.

They unveiled a "Blueprint for a Safer North Carolina." It calls for legislators, local government and community leaders to come together to promote crime prevention.

It also asks state leaders to to increase funding for prosecutors. They say they receive fewer than three percent of the state budget each year.

The blueprint will also provide services to protect residents and victims.

"It's about the three 'P's' of community base prosecution; being proactive, focusing on prevention and making sure we have the partnerships that are necessary to do our jobs effectively," said District Attorney Ben David.

The blueprint will also provide services to protect residents and victims.

Fire jason smith if you want your city to be safe!!!! He doesnt do his job to protect defend and prosecute violent crimes. He cost me justice along with the rest of your incompetent staff i was humiliated and beaten again by a man who beat me up so bad i should be dead. Jason Smith doesnt deserve to have a job as a ada and now he tries superior crimes???? He was rude and didnt give me even a one minute consultation before i was slaughtered. Im glad karen jackson no longer has a job. She lied to me about how to subpoena the witness. Your mission statements and claims of what u r doing for justice are all lies and rhetoric. This office is corrupt.

Have cameras aimed on all license plates on all vehicles on every highway leading into the state (dirt roads too) and they can see if the perpetrators are criminals...or law abiding tax payers or not.
Hey...it works for Wrightsville Beach doesn't it?

I believe there is a raise mentioned in the fine print for all prosecutors and staff...

What does that blueprint say about district attorneys giving their buddies preferential treatment? How long did it take the DA to call in the state officials to investigate Jayne? Why did he ignore charges brought against an investigator in his office? That's just the tip of the iceberg with our illustrious DA.

I have a novel idea for them, why not enforce the laws you have on the books, cut out the revolving doors, and clear up the court docket!!! run that courtroom 24/7 till the docket is cleared up, cut out the grandstanding and charades and deal making and get it done. Quit turning these thugs loose on us, there has been 3 break ins in 1 week alone in our development, not good! These sheriff's could work 70 to 80% of their force from 10 pm till 6 am and let the observant citizens watch out for their neighbors during the day light hours, break ins are on the rise! It's not that difficult a thing to get a handle on!

It would be nice if the "Blueprint for a Safer North Carolina" included the removal of the "revolving doors" of the Justice System which career criminals (murders, thieves, habitual drunk drivers, drug dealers, rapist, et al.) are so accustomed to utilizing after each assault they commit against our communities. Crime prevention initiatives are admirable. But, without the promise of serious and consistent consequences for criminal activity, those of us who rely on the justice system to keep our neighborhoods safe, will continue to suffer at the hands of those who "thumb their noses" at society and the laws designed to protect us. I am sick and tired of hearing the excuse of a "lack of prison space" while our governments spend our (tax) money on social programs which I've worked hard to provide for myself (housing, food, health care, job training, day care, CELLPHONES, etc). It is time to start diverting some of MY (tax) money from providing for others, to the building and staffing of prisons whose "Blueprint" does NOT include revolving doors.

I hope this has nothing to do with....dare I say it? ....taking guns from law abiding citizens.

Working with faith based organizations?
A thought.
Keeping repeat offenders off the streets would go a long way to helping reduce crime and keep our streets safer.....

Work with the Catholic Church and get their molesters off the streets.

But since you mention it, don't forget to include the Baptist, Methodist, Episcopalian, Church of God, Hindu, and Muslim (only to mention a few...) sexual molesters too, okay? Then we can work on the sports coaches...then we can work on the school teachers...then we can work on the Boy Scout leaders, then...and on and on and on...

One of the main points is to prevent career, violent felons from continually migrating back into society to repeat the violent acts they've already performed over and over again, right?

Guest Bullisht, when you get back from "church", join us.

Lutherans... Just saying
