Why not teach them knife fighting, firearms skills, to go with the kickboxing and other training to help them become better criminals.

There is not much to do in town after hours. Why not try to get them interested in something else other than hanging out on the streets. If you can get at least one off the streets and into something then we are a +1 to the good. Unfortunately we can't change the minds of all of them and then it will cost us more tax dollars to house them in the jails.
