    Time to call in the National Guard. Start patrolling the neighborhoods and get the decent people in these neighborhoods involved in taking back their streets. The prisons are over-crowded. Many are non-violent offenders and should just be released or sent to low security prisons or offered a trip to the military. A lack of education and resources fuels these problem areas but most people who seem to comment just chalk it up to race.
