Enforce the laws that are on the books and keep the thugs off the streets since the majority seem to be committed by blacks why is the black community not more involved?

"In one of the weekend shootings, the father of a 16-year-old shooting victim told police he did not want his daughter talking with officers, according to a police report." This is a major part of the problem right here. What are the Chief or city leaders supposed to do when they're up against this ghetto culture. Piss on these people.

Murphy01-I agree with you-black community should stop blaming the whites and get off their butts and correct their own prob

Why doesn't "Stop the Violence" focus on the Baby Momma culture & pass out free birth control; if they really want to be effective? And why doesn't our government start penalizing these women that continue to have multiple babies, just to get more $$ from our government? Every time a woman on Welfare has another child, they should get a reduction in their checks, instead of rewarding this bad behavior. If any of you watch "The First 48", the black crimes are not just a Little Rock problem, it's a nation-wide thug problem. It just so happens that I live in Little Rock - but have plans to get the hell out of this Thug-Ridden city soon!

Hey titleist - You are correct up to a point. Problems with crime and poverty within our inner cities, primarily involving blacks, were not solely created by the black community. White liberals that devised a political strategy many years ago that continues to this day that is designed to enslave inner city residents to a government handout (and Democrat votes) is part and parcel to the problem. White liberals ARE very much to blame. It's up to white conservatives to help solve it.

This thug/crime really began, imo, when rap music turned into gangsta rap and glorified the lifestyle on music videos. It's reached epidemic proportions now!
