    • Actually I do not think they are at all. In many instances the bad elements comes from the community itself. They are well aware of the problems and they know very well the persons responsible for the crime and delinquent acts. The sad reality is the fact that they only complain when it affects them directly. And then we hear the usual echo “I want justice for my brother, sister, child, and so on” Interestingly, the same people calling out for justice are usually the very same ones accepting money and other gifts from their children and siblings who they know did not obtain them legally. It is true that the various law enforcement groups are responsible for addressing crime as well as safeguarding the communities, but the prevention of crime is also the responsibility of an entire community. We all have a part to play and if we are truly concerned about crime it’s about time we do something about it instead of waiting on the police. An easy start can be stop buying things we know are stolen.
