Stop Local Victimization

Do you want to stop local victimization and violent crime in your neighborhood? I assume you do.

I suggest writing a letter to the police chief in your neighborhood and also his superiors, including the mayor and others. Tell them that you want law enforcement funds and resources put towards stopping violent crime and victimization. Demand that the police stop wasting any resources on victimless crimes, at least until they put an end to violent crime and victimization.

If you have the time and motivation, you can turn your letter into a petition by getting other members of the community to sign it.

Beyond that, we have to take it into our own hands. We need to set up private organizations that protect us, such as neighborhood watches, security firms, and private police.

What do you think?

If you decide to send a letter to your police chief, feel free to email it to me, and I’ll publish it on this blog.
