Poverty increases crime. Why many don't seem to be able to grasp this concept, I don't know. People always want to make things racial. It's a cultural issue. People with no money, no future, who have been tossed to the curb by greater society, are going to have a chip on their shoulders and are going to commit crimes, without giving any iota of a damn. It's that simple.
With 7 billion people on the planet, there is always going to be an "unwanted element". You can't change it. Whether you are white, black, red, green or rainbow colored. The trick is to use controlled violence against those who think they are owed something and take to the streets, robbing, ****** and killing others. Of course today such people are only given a slap on the wrist. Little do people realize that their pathetic charity is percieved as weakness by those who would kill someone for a $5 bill. Trash should be treated like trash. Otherwise the streets get dirty.
