“I don’t think that the government should do it, because it is a slap in the Commissioner of Police’s face, as if to say that he can’t do his job.”

“Yes we need help, our police ain’t doing a good job and if we were to bring people in from foreign countries, this country would experience smooth sailing.”

“No, we can fight our own crime. All we need is for the police to do their job and stop being corrupt.”

Every organization fighting the same course,will need help from each other.do you remember the bare feet bandit.The same way the us helps us in the war against drugs,they can help us in the war against crime kidnapping murders etc.but if we are serious about crime,we have to raise the sentences,and it will be for my child and your child.those who have money and those who don"t will suffer the same fate.if you are caught with the following cocaine...20 years gun..25 because of all these murders,you will pay the price kidnapping...20years go and find a job robbery 20 years if someone is shot in the process,you do the mat rape..20 20 years if you are caugh no bail,go before the judge get your sentence and go straight to jail.if you do the crime you will spend the time.
