As long as these animals are given free housing and food stamps, the drugs and violence will continue.

Some people do not want to better themselves like we do. They just want as much "free" stuff as they can get as easily as possible. Period.

Charity is a great thing, but it must be balanced with prudence. If you raise a snake, expect to get bitten.

The author is right. The police are not miracle workers, there is only so much they can do without witnesses coming forward. While I agree with RPG and have a CC weapon myself, I realize that option is not best for everyone. We really need to crack down on crime judicially. If the evidence is there start sentencing criminals to the max allowed by law and mandate a required drug rehabilitation program. If the drug addiction is not confronted head on the offender will end up right back in the judicial system. When it comes to the lawn I prefer to mow it once a week and plant flowers every spring in addition to my returning plants however not everyone likes yard work and gardening. I've went through this with a previous neighbor, they didn't want to do anything with their yard, it drove me crazy. They did make an excellent point I never thought of, they bought and paid for their house so who was I or anyone else to tell them what they have to do with their yard.

I cannot say that I disagree with a lot of what you said. However, what a property looks like has little to do with whether or not a crime is going to be committed. I do agree that people that take care of their property typically "care more." The real problem is the gangsters, thugs, and other undesirables living there. If the police were encouraged to be excessively brutal to these types of people, the problem would be solved. You cannot have police afraid to lose their jobs over "profiling," or other methods of crime prevention. Also, the residents of the hilltop should be encouraged to arm themselves to protect against violence. After a few robberies prove fatal for the criminals, they will find another occupation.
