Conventional wisdom says it's better to prevent crime then to respond to crime. That sounds good, but if criminals feel there will be no response, they proceed with impunity. So this is the basis for closing down prevention departments and moving the officers to response units.

During the recent attempted ATM theft, neighbors called the police for an hour as they watched the robbers beat and drag the ATM machine from the building. Normally, the crooks would be long gone with this slow response. Unfortunately, too often there is NO response to a crime in progress.

Until you make criminals fear you, they will continue to do what they do. What the city needs is Judge Dredd, judge and executioner. It is not a citizen's right to live in a peaceful neighborhood, that right has to be earned by standing up and fighting back. I guaranteed you, when that happens, you will see very little crime if any.

True enough and Evans was tending that way and was rebuked as too tough. We have a couple on this group that defend the crime culture as the same as the lesser crime cultures. These people ARE the problem no matter how they wring their hands here and proclaim they are against crime. When shown the numbers, they argue that there is a reason, that we are all with sin. They absolutely never support anything with facts.
