Fighting Urban Decay

lapolicebadge.jpgGovernment sponsored programs are not the primary solution to urban decay such as drug trafficking and crime.  To restore a city and its neighborhoods, fight crime successfully and everything else will start to fall into place.  Just ask Los Angeles Police Commissioner Bill Bratton because he understands this concept.  It appears Mayor Villaraigosa is also taking this notion to heart while making an increase in the police force a top priority.  L.A.’s troubled neighborhoods will welcome more officers.
