Crime Prevention Task Force?

40 Members
105 Murders
Thousands of Early releases

How long do we have to wait for the Mayor to do something substantial to help curb violence. He has given us a lot of lip service, but no real action.

In the Star editorial today (linked above) it reads in part:

As Peterson acknowledged in a meeting with The Star's Editorial Board on Wednesday, the city's crime problems festered for years in part because he and other leaders tolerated early releases from the jail. In time, a sense of lawlessness took hold on the city's streets.

The Crime panel is a joke. How are 40 people, many who have no crime prevention background, ever going to decrease crime? All of the individuals are smart professionals who are great in their fields. This is a different story. They are not even supposed to come out with recommendations until December. What good is a piece of paper going to do us 3 months from today. People are being killed at a crazy rate and we are supposed to wait 3 months for an opinion from 40 people.

Just more Smoke and Mirrors from the Peterson admin. Any first year criminal justice student could easily point to the root cause of crime in this city...but this mayor would rather ignore the folks who are knowledgeable and put on some third rate show...BTW..how much is this "Task Force" costing us? Are they all volunteering their time?
