Communities across North America, including several in our area, are joining forces Tuesday night to make a stand against crime and drugs. In all, more than 34 million people are expected to take part in America's Night Out Against Crime. The national Night Out aims to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs, strengthen police-community partnerships and let criminals know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. Among tonight's local events, the first ever in Carolina Beach on the boardwalk at 7:00pm. In Leland, the event runs from 5:00 to 9:00pm at the town's pavilion.

Uh...yeah....this will accomplish a lot....

Let's walk around for a few hours once a year to stop crime and drug use. Visit the website and you'll see their true motivation - vist their superstore to purchase "hats, banners, t-shirts and lots more...." I love these feel-good programs that make a few founders rich. I truly do admire their ingenuity, but scoff at the sheep who jump on the bandwagon and think they are actually accomplishing anything. The Million Man March? The Million Mom March? The organizers make millions. The "movements" accomplish nothing. Want to do something about crime and drug use? Keep your eyes and ears open, report what you see to police, be completely aware of your surroundings at all times and be prepared to defend your life and property. You don't need to buy a hat or t-shirt for any of those.
