I am not knocking the PD or its officers. What I will ridicule is the do nothing, feel good, politically correct programs like the gun buy backs (proven to be totally not effective in reducing crime). I seriously wish the local clergy with their efforts in the "cease fire". However, the folks doing the shooting would not be shooting if they were in church listening to these pastors. I think the phrase we are looking for is "preaching to the choir". The best we can hope for is for the citizens of the neighborhoods that have become strongholds for the drug dealers and thugs to get a belly full of the violence and fear and step up to the plate. They hold the keys to putting an end to their misery but live in fear of acting to rid the vermin from their midst.
