One half of the General Fund goes to police. Maybe if we upped it to 100%, then we can really take a bite out of crime and be free to pursue happiness.

“Nobody knows the neighborhood better than those who live there,” McDonnell said."

That's completely false. Section 8 housing ensures that neighbors do NOT know each other. Why would a homeowner want to know the old black grandma who lives in the krakkerbox apartment next door living on section 8, and harboring her recently sprung from prison grandson? Why would someone want to point these people out to the police? Once the police cruiser leaves, it's just the ex-con vs the homeowner. Who do you think will win that battle? The homeowner, or the exxon and the section 8 grandma with relatively nothing to lose?

This is why crime persists. If people like McDonnell and the Press Telegram continue to try to misleadthe public, and ignore the politically incorrect source of the problem, the problem continues. Lying breeds contempt.
