Gangs & Crime: Why we need Neighborhood Watch

Tim Smith writes in pointing to the WAVY article about the testimony of the Norfolk gang leader.  Excerpts from the article:

Reed testified there are now at least 400 members of the Bounty Hunter Bloods in seven chapters around Norfolk.

On the stand, Reed said the Bloods are actively recruiting new members right now. Their goal, rule all of Norfolk with fear and an iron fist.

Tim Smith says:

“This is disturbing and should act as a wakeup call for all those people out there that do not want to get involved in a Neighborhood Watch program.

This confirms my comments at the last neighborhood watch meeting “The criminals are organized and we need to get organized to fight them.”

Children under 10 years old have no concept of “consequences for your actions” and turning 30 is like another life to them. The news shows these gang members/gang wannabes becoming increasingly more violent (I guess you have to top the last guy).

If we do not clean up our neighborhoods now, revitalization will only be a pipe dream.”

The next Greater Wards Corner Area Neighborhood Watch meeting is on August 26 at 6:30p.m. at the Workforce Development Center.
