Summer Crime,Summer Crime, Sum,Sum,Summer Crime

While other's were watching American Idol re-runs, trying to figure out the winner -  we(on the show) were wondering where to next.....

We  talked about  bank failures, the current administration surpressing a report about Mexican methamphetamine superlabs and their exportation of meth-a-death to us,U.S....we talked about California's attempt to authorise the use of a known neuro-toxin on crops...and United States taxpayers paying BILLIONS of dollars  for an Afghan protection racket...

Oh, yeah, and a young girl shot in No-Yo, a young lady,Tracy Banks, murdered in We-Yo, and in Campbell, a young man shot - with an AK 47- in the head -  at close range...and this: A man charged with the attempted murder of a 17-year old boy and with being a felon with a gun...and this in So-Yo :homicide victim has been identified as Marlon J. Chatman, police reported...

We're reminded,as if this,somehow,justifies ignorance(ignorance XIII. — (O)F. — L. ignōrantia, f. prp. of ignōrāre not to know, misunderstand, disregard, rel. to ignārus unaware;
So ignorant XIV. ignore †not to know XVII; (of a grand jury) reject (a bill); refuse to take notice of XIX. — (O)F. ignorer or L. ignōrāre.) -that this happens EVERYWHERE in the summer... from the Washington Post: ...the onset of summer means an increase in crime for D.C. Hot temperatures coupled with longer days, summer break from area high schools and a high unemployment rate could increase crime rates this summer.  ...to San Francisco Examiner : San Francisco’s top brass says there will be fewer police officers on the street to combat the annual summer uptick in crime because the department does not have the budget to support patrols.

In addition to the police’s budget being slashed, factors such as criminals being released due to the crime lab scandal and the cut in summer school classes coupled with slashing of a new Police Academy class, leave San Franciscans vulnerable during a peak crime season, says police Chief George Gascón.

“A lot of people are being released from the prison system,”-

Somehow, that seems to give those FEW that say anything about this area's bloodshed, a reason to shoulder-shrug.

 We heard the same 'solution' in pre-summer: crime's a' coming May, as we heard  last week, after the We-Yo tragedy of the young lady murdered and rising football star shot:

From the first week of May -

Feds, city leaders plan united offensive on crime...

Youngstown Police Chief Jimmy Hughes and Williams hope that combining resources will mean getting more guns off the streets and longer prison sentences for those using guns to commit crimes....

Hughes said any collaborative effort will afford local police the opportunity to seek stiffer punishments for gun crimes by prosecuting criminals under federal statutes. He said such an initiative would be great in combatting crime this summer....

Williams said any potential program would build on the successes of the Violence and Gun Reduction Interdiction Program in the city in 2003. He said there must be a clear message that any person using a gun to commit crimes here will go to prison for a long time.

Williams said help from the federal government will assure tougher sentences on some violent gun crimes.

“We are happy to have them here and look forward to a productive relationship,” the mayor added.

 Then , on 21 June 2010-

Youngstown mayor plans multi-front assault on gun violence in city...

In the aftermath of a weekend shooting that left a 17-year-old girl dead and a star football player critically injured, Mayor Jay Williams pledged Sunday night the city will swiftly crack down on gun violence...

The mayor spoke out after the shooting of Jamel Turner, a talented but troubled athlete, and the killing of 17-year-old Tracy Banks early Saturday on the city’s West Side....

The city, in cooperation with federal authorities, will embark on the Violence-Gun Reduction Interdiction Program to clear guns from the city’s streets this summer, Williams said. Last month, Youngstown Police Chief Jimmy Hughes and Williams said that combining resources with the feds will ultimately mean more guns off the streets and longer prison sentences for those using guns to commit crimes.

Hughes said any collaborative effort will afford local police the opportunity to seek stiffer punishments for gun crimes by prosecuting criminals under federal statutes.

 

IS THERE AN ECHO HERE????

 

Guns don't kill people, people do.

Guns may kill more quickly,from a distance, etc, but it's a person that pulls the trigger.

Mayor Williams said "The culture of crime and violence, the mayor said, “just brings tragedy.”

HEY ! Maybe the Feds have a programme to deal with the culture of crime and violence.

HEY ! Maybe the Feds have a programme to deal with the culture of crime and violence.

HEY ! Maybe the Feds have a programme to deal with the culture of crime and violence.

I thought that either  repeating the statements or passing the responsibility was the solution!

postscript - To county 'leaders' - it is  ok for y'all to speak out about the violence, the bloodshed in the city, the city IS within the county.

"Youngstown Police Chief Jimmy Hughes and Williams hope that combining resources will mean getting more guns off the streets and longer prison sentences for those using guns to commit crimes...."

Let's look at the real facts . . . ..

Police were fired because an arrestee for drunken driving complains that his feelings were offended . There was no medical evidence of any injuries from the arrest. The city should by him a Van with hand controls to lessen his chance of wrecking by being forced to use a stick for the pedals . A cooler and a years supply of Malt Liquor should be included.

Gun specifications are dropped and killers are out in a matter of months . Rampant drug dealing and thefts to support drug habits are a way of life in Youngstown .

I've got a plan Jay and clueless Hughes aren't going to do a thing to alleviate the city's crime problem . Perhaps after the next Mayoral election . . ..

THE PLAN IS . . ..

LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT !

Plea bargaining should NEVER be available when a gun is used to commit a crime. Wam, bam, slam...case closed! Why our government servants cannot see that is one indication of why taxpayers feel the system is broken.

When government servants finally begin to act responsibly and uphold the laws they were hired to enforce, we will then see law enforcement in action, and not useless social rehabilitation efforts.

Stan...good comments, but our present society has proven we have no clue on how to hire our next leader. I only wish we could "hit the jackpot" someday with leaders we could all admire. We always "hire" a leader we "hope" will be our next coming of George Washington, but the truth remains our leaders of today are too involved in political systems. We have built our current state of affairs with cast-offs, alcoholics, womanizers, and lifetime politicians who have no clue on how to run a major organization, such as a city, a state or a nation. Our best leaders are too wise to become involved in government service and remain in the private sector of business and industry, where privacy and financial rewards are plentiful.

"HEY ! Maybe the Feds have a programme to deal with the culture of crime and violence."

Maybe if you paid your taxes, we could hire more police Louie.
