For Starters

1. have the City Council adopt legislation which would allow the police to auction off the impounded vehicles. The loss of rides may keep some dealers from the area; the revenue from vehicle sales may cover a part of the cost for placing the police officers on the grounds. We're not talking a significant number of officers; certainly no where near the number placed at schools throughout the city and county. 2. focus NAACP marching efforts as mentioned. Focus on today's issues not something which occured in 1898. 3. Involve the media. Could be seeing their offspring on the tellie would cause some parents to question why their young gentlemen are on the streets at 3 in the morning. Add the impact of the parents' car being impounded, the message may get through. 4. have the National Gaurd units hold summer training sessions in the projects. They train for 2 weeks each year. Stagger the sessions so one group moves in as another group exits. Really should be no cost increase as they budget for training anyway. 5. Have Screen Gems film an action adventure movie set in a southern city. Chuck Norris as the star. Fees paid to city and National Gaurd might actually turn a profit in the fight to take back the neighborhoods. In all seriousness, what would happen if the NAACP, City Council, WHA leadership, media reps, and parents start taking to the project streets after 10 or 11 each evening? Have them approach, with police backup, these groups of young gentlemen who seem to congregate with nothing to do.
