If cities were seen as safe places to live, work and do business the governments of the cities would need do nothing more. Private enterprise would take over and the the cities would be thriving in a just a small number of years.

But solving the crime problem is not easy. And cosmetic fixes won’t do it. People see right through them. Unfortunately, cities must hit rock bottom before citizens start demanding real solutions to the crime problem and VOTING for the politicians who will do something and not just raid the city till.
