    It is sad that no one is really concerned about breaking the cycle of crime in the black community. Until we can help them increase the number of two parent families and develop a yearning for education it will not change. A big start would be to help them eliminate the gangs. The kids want to belong to something. If we don't offer something else something better gangs will continue to proliferate and so will crime.

    Having been a Police Officer I could only lock up those who I caught. I guess there just weren't enough Whites and Others stealing Car Stereos and holding up Quikie Marts.

    I think those statistics show who was dumb enough to get caught.
