Homecide Number 27; Wilmington, Delaware.

A stupid robbery sounding like something out of Brazzaville, Congo, left a young mother dead in her backyard. Although national statistics report that violent crime — including murder — has been on the decline, the number of homicides and shootings in Wilmington remains steady.

These things happen, I know. but the headline that got me, was the one exclaiming:

Delaware crime: Homicide record brings fear, search for solutions

Why after 18 years, are we still searching for a solution? Here is the solution: it’s the same one that fixed New York City under Mayor Rudolf Guiliani.

Arrest everyone loitering or jaywalking, and bring them in for processing. Everyone, even whites if you can find them in Wilmington.

You process them, fine them, and arrest them again if they didn’t learn their first time.

Here’s what happens when you do that.

1) Fewer crimes occur because all those committing them are being held for loitering. They are no longer available to commit a crime.

2) People get tired of being arrested, so their behavior stops.

3) Without people loitering for passing cars, no drugs can get sold. That forces the big movers to set up shop elsewhere. Interestingly Wilmington’s crime problem began … just as Guiliani began cleaning up New York.

4) With no gangs hanging out on street corners, the streets instantly appear safer because…. they are.

5) After the third arrest, and threat of serious consequences, most people decide selling out the criminals is safer than protecting them.

It’s not rocket science. Right now warlords control Wilmington. If you live on 35th Street, you have more to fear from your local drug lords, than you do the cops. So you don’t snitch, even when your preacher tells you to. That’s stupid.. your dead in the morning.

But.. if they are already incarcerated, telling on them is easy; the cops have the upper hand.

Who’s the drug dealer and who is just killing time? You can’t tell. That is why you need to arrest everyone… Drive around in school buses, pull up to a corner, jump out, shoot two of them (just kidding, lol) and order the rest to get in the van…

Negatives:

Your jails will be packed. Solution: keep stuffing them in. Most will not want to come back for a second visit.

Your courts will have to run 24/7. Keep their dockets full. If they can’t process, hold the suspects until their hearing comes up.

A lot of innocents get picked up that never committed a crime. Well, they were loitering, weren’t they? Process and fine them.

Liberals will wail and moan that mostly black people are being thrown in jail. Respond it is mostly black people who are loitering. Liberals will decry that innocent people are caught in the net. Respond that innocent people get hurt all the time. The dead mother leading this story, was innocent. Better to have innocents in jail, than a neighborhood that’s a FAIL…

But even with these negatives… fewer drugs will trade hands. Fewer killings will stain the sidewalks. It will be safe to bring home a loaf of bread again.

I guess what I was mad at the most, is how chicken the public safety department of this city is… Oh, I don’t mean they’re scared of criminals. I mean they are scared of politics. They are scared they’ll get fired if the wrong person complains they arrested their cousin. They are scared they’ll lose their job, if they try to do something to fix the situation. They are worried they will alienate some powerful people if they arrest scores of people hourly and throw them into our judicial system.

They need a leader who says… “Do it. I got your back” and then… has their back.. That is what is missing in Wilmington Delaware.

Brave people in positions of power. That is why we hear more and more about how horrible life in Wilmington is…

To fix it is simple. There is an answer which trims crime down. And that answer is to: ….

“Book, em, Danno…. “
