$4M to fight crime

$4M to fight crime | Cincinnati Enquirer | Cincinnati.Com

The solution still is to deal with things after the fact.  You don't need the stimulus plan to re-look at sentencing guidelines.  Alternatives need to be looked at for non-violent criminals that don't involve jail time.  The side bar shows a very uneven distribution with Cincinnati getting the most money.  Well of Cincinnati should as it is a large city, right?  Cincinnati Police recently conducted Vortex in which they focused on high-crime areas in an attempt to reduce crime.  It worked, sort of as Vortex simply drove criminal activity to outlaying areas.  The $2.4 million dollars may have a similar effect, instead of reducing crime it may only serve to drive crime to other areas.
