I believe crime will be drastically reduced if we simply had more blue collar jobs for the 18 - 25 year olds, and I don't mean fast food outlets or grocery stores. I'm talking about jobs in manufacturing, semi skilled employment that we now get done overseas.
We have a greater number of young adults that don't have the aptitude for education and need options that once existed that now don't ... we used to have huge manufacturing plants employing thousands to make most of our white goods (fridges / tv's / dishwashers / phones etc) and now we do nothing like that.
I'd like the governor and mayor to focus on luring manufacturing industries back into this State with tax abatements and the like (and not to developers) and I'll bet the crime rates will reduce, to a much more manageable number.
