"You can do that by being respectful, helpful, charitiable, community minded, law abiding, and caring citizens." - Chuck

While true, this does not constitute a plan. Maybe we could wave a magic wand and everyone who entered the city would instantly become a perfect citizen. Since that probably won't work, there needs to be a way to create these citizens that Chuck wants. We can't legislate good parenting, so as a society, all we can do is to stop teaching kids in school that the world revolves around them, to reward good behavior and to punish bad behavior. Music and lofty speeches will not accomplish it, but maybe they will inspire some action. We didn't get into this mess overnight and it won't be fixed overnight, but we need to get started.

Chuck, I agree, but sadly there are many that aren't and it's up to the citizens of this community to work with police in identifying the ones that are bringing our city down.

Mr. Manson, excellent letter and I couldn't agree more. This is OUR city, and it's up to us to help make it safe again.
