Ways to reducing crime in our communities:
“Create more economic opportunities. More jobs, less crime, less jobs, more crime. Crime is fueled by poverty and limited opportunities in our neighborhoods. If you ask most people who are incarcerated, a majority are there because they can’t meet their financial needs. It can be traced back to a weak financial foundation. Programs are a Band Aid of sorts and only go so deep. When the grant money stops flowing, the issues that were being addressed return once again. Who always gets hurt? The recipients😡
We need investments in our neighborhoods, education in competitive fields with skilled job training, and obtaining products to protect our families and transfer wealth to our loved ones.
The worst thing that you can do to someone is remove his ability to provide and protect his family.”
