These are the three pillars that comprise my strategy for successful anti-crime activism.
Notice that none of these three suggestions require blessings from on high (or low) from the bureaucrats who often are either indifferent or hostile toward citizens who are seeking safer streets, especially if those concerned citizens happen to be residents of the inner city.
In my opinion, "hood crime" is too often deceptively used as a cash cow by what I call "white power liberals." They don't talk very much to the black activists who live in dangerous neighborhoods, but they nonetheless do seek to use our problems, such as high murder rates, to boost their political careers and land crony capitalist contracts.
So, in the end, the act of really saving the hood is almost always going to end up the duty of its own concerned residents. This is the case even if our tax dollars are being withheld by those same liberals, because they know that keeping the hood underfunded is what keeps their cash cow of hood crime fattened.
Self-defense is self-love, sisters and brothers! Being aware and being prepared for your own benefit as well as the benefit of others shows that you have reverence for and value all concerned.
Walking high-crime areas as a citizen on patrol also means that you also consider these zip codes to be as important as some people consider five-star hotels and gated communities elsewhere to be.
