Governor, YSU and city officials work to reduce crimes



Published: Mon, February 7, 2011 @ 6:03 p.m.

Gov. John Kasich agreed to a number of requests from city and Youngstown State University officials that all hope will reduce crimes such as the mass shooting at a house near the school that left one man dead and 11 wounded.

But Kasich said, “I can’t tell you that any one of those things could have stopped this from happening, but I think all these things comprehensively can provide a greater sense of safety and security for people that live in this Valley.”

Kasich came to YSU today, the day after the shooting that left Jamail Johnson, 25, of Indiana Avenue in Youngstown, dead. There were 11 other people, ranging in age from 17 to 31, injured.

The shooting occurred about 3:40 a.m. Sunday at Johnson’s house, which he shared with other YSU students. Of the 11 other shot, five are YSU students.

Kasich and members of his staff and cabinet met privately for about 90 minutes today with Mayor Jay Williams, Police Chief Jimmy Hughes, YSU President Dr. Cynthia E. Anderson, and YSU trustees and officials.

The United States would save taxpayers a bundle by offering a free college education online to every student.

Are you even serious with what you are saying candystriper?? Crime is going to happen regardless of if you are in college from home or attend a campus. A free online college education won't help our society. No student will really learn or get experience in their field of study. Please think about what you are going to say before you post please.

Another example of animals. They have no concern for themselves or others. Jail or prison is an improvement in their living. They feel the system owes them everything. Maybe they need to listen to the speech of the man who they claim to admire and follow. Until this problem is eliminated from Youngstown - Youngstown will be eliminated. What a great way to start Black History month. Oh, but the man said we should not be judged by our color. So why Black History Month.

If Indiana can partner with Western Governors University a nonprofit online University with backing from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation so can Ohio. We need more capacity for higher education and there is no way for states to afford it today. All children deserve to attend college free. Is education not the way out of poverty? Are you happy with the status quo?

"Kasich and members of his staff and cabinet met privately for about 90 minutes today with Mayor Jay Williams, Police Chief Jimmy Hughes, YSU President Dr. Cynthia E. Anderson, and YSU trustees and officials."

Hopefully he bashed the useless mayor and his sidekick Hughes.
There both worthless.

I agree with you Heather. Candystriper apparently doesn't live in the real world where online degrees aren't worth the paper they're printed on. It cracks me up when someone tells me they go to school online.

Harvard offers it.

yes Harvard does offer some classes online so people like us that live in the boondocks can learn from some of the best minds in the world. I don't think you can get a degree online from Harvard though. Online courses can not replace classroom discussion etc.

Harvard offers online "classes" as does pretty much every college but you can't get an online degree at Harvard. Harvard is too respectable for that.

John Kasich needs to declare a state of emergency in Youngstown and send in the State Hwy Patrol with National guard backup to cleanout the nests of hoodrats all over the city just like they did for the schools. It's quite obvious that Mayor Jay and Jimmy Hughes have failed Youngstown in crime prevention.

Shut down the Love Lounge where there is a gun or knife fight every weekend and enforce no one under the age of 21 allowed to drink at ALL the bars downtown and this wouldn't have happened. Of course all the bars would then close.

"I know that the people who comment on these are losers who think their opinions are actually worth something....."

So I guess your a loser . Huh?

"Lifes2Short its their not there spell correctly before you call people in higher positions then yourself useless."

Thanks for the spelling correction, Spelling was never my strong subject, anyway, you think the useless mayor and his sidekick actually have control over Youngstown? You think the animals are scared of them running the city?
See maybe the useless mayor and his sidekick should take lessons from Newark Mayor Cory Booker.

<<As of July 26, 2009, murders are down 42% overall, rapes are down 41% overall and robberies are down 12% since 2008.

The month of March in 2010 marked Newark’s first murder-free month in over 44 years. As of April 1, 2010, the murder rate in Newark was the second best since 1941 and crime rates for aggravated assaults, robberies, carjacking, and shootings were also down for the first quarter compared to 2009.

In addition to lowering crime, Booker has slashed the city budget deficit from $180 million to $73 million. >>>

See 330, this is what a Mayor is suppose to do, not just smile in front of the cameras.
