Leaders claim that crime is low however, we started the New Year with countless shootings. According to the NYPD, Murder has increased 26%, Grand Larceny Auto increased 68% and Burglaries increased 32%.
Violent crime should not be taken lightly, especially when it happens in our borough!
We must come up with a plan that will prevent crime. We must make our communities and how to do that? By tackling the issue at its root, poverty.
Our communities need more opportunities and a physical manifestation of hope!
