Make guns easy to get like they are SUPPOSE to be (this would help to reduce robberies & out-side-the-projects confrontations, which can turn fatal)
TARGETED police patrols... Why do I rarely see police in Williams Delight at night? that's when I hear the gun shots....
How about Grove, when I drop off kids @ Grove I never see police out side "patrolling" Hell they are so clueless that the kids stole heavy equipment, made a paintball field and played paintball with stolen paintball guns a stones throw away from the police structure in grove....
Community out reach programs, the kids in there need to see a clear escape path, right now it's job core I hear most about, that's good but we need more things like that, more opportunities for positive mentor-ship.
Parents being parents is a start. Not just being baby makers.
All government subsidies tied to children should require a "parental test" (psychological, stress response, intellect). If you want more food stamps and more tax breaks for being a parent, you'd have to show your a good parent 😉
That's my solution for that.
