How many young innocent bystanders have to die or be injured by gang violence? Law enforcement is overwhelmed and too short on manpower to deal with the runaway chaos Modesto streets are seeing. They say the jails and prisons are filled to capacity and many are desperate for more room and remodeling. If money is an issue for law enforcement, then lets give the tools and resources to the police to properly deal with the issue.
I would give $40 out of my paycheck every week if it kept an innocent 22-month-old kid safe to play in his front yard. How much blood needs to flow down the streets of America before this nation wakes up to the fact that gangs represent a clear and present danger to society and the future development of the next generation?
People, be active in your neighborhoods. Report graffiti and drug activity to law enforcement ASAP.
