Crime-Heroin-Prostitution-Criminals? In Your Hood?

Crime. Americans are afraid of crime. As a matter of fact Americans are afraid of the mere possibility of crime. And why not?

For years they have been told about the dangers of everything from Jay-walking to Marijuana; from Mugging to Heroin. They have been inundated with reports and videos and rumors of crime. Pictures make it all the more real and immediate.

But the truth is that many millions of Americans go out every day. In cars; on foot; on buses and in cabs. They go to school, work, and just for a walk. Most; the vast majority of those people do this every day and are never the victims of crime especially violent crime.

There is a higher likelyhood that you will be the victim of crime if you: a) Live in a high crime area; mostly urban areas but not all urban areas. b) Travel in such areas regularly. c) Are involved in crime yourself. Or d) Run naked into a known criminal hangout wearing only precious stones and a Visa card and singing “Rape Me”. Other than that; your odds are pretty good.

But I am here to tell you that “Crime”, is indeed, everywhere.  And we are responsible. So if crime is everywhere; how can I say that it’s pretty safe to walk the streets in most places?

Because the crime taking place in most neigborhoods isn’t violent; it isn’t infringing on anyones rights and it doesn’t hurt anyone but the participants if it even harms them. It may be gambling, Marijuana or other drugs, prostitution, or  it could be the guy down the block who found a way to download copyrighted music or video.

So what is the truth? What should we do about all of this crime and all these criminals?…………………….
