Pugh aims to fight crime with services

21 posts in this topic

OOOOhhhhh boy. More free stuff. And now it will be brought right to their doors.

 

All these services are already available....oh ohh...can't have them putting down the remote or taking a break from selling on the corner.

 

Another feel good waste of money.

 

Ridiculous.

Mayor Catherine, like all other pols, wants to be seen to "do something" to cure a serious problem.

 

My best guess is that the yos will take advantage of the services offered and then go out to shoot people. More government giveaways will not change the mindset of those involved in the violence.

 

It's generally agreed that the drug trade is the basis for the protracted violence along with the gang culture.  The drug trade is the most profitable business in B'more and the young men involved in it make more money than they ever could in the menial jobs for which they are qualified.

 

Catherine can offer more services and Kevin can offer more cops but until they find a way to take the profit out of drugs I don't see much in the way of change on the horizon.

In theory, she is right. You need to keep people off the street to lower crime. But what she should be doing is dropping condoms from helicopters to lower the birth rate of the city's poor.

 

Kids in the city want money. Free basketball camps don't offer them that.

As I have said many times. Their 'lifestyle' is has been ingrained over generations. The services have been their for generations. Do-gooders have been trying to help them for generations.

 

Hopefully .... someday....the libs will get it...that you can't help everyone...especially those that don't want to be helped. Well, no that isn't entirely true. You can leave your check and free stuff....but don't expect them to change.

 

The only way to straighten this out is clearing the slate. Hmmmm maybe instead of dropping condoms maybe they should start dropping ammo ....let them do it themselves.

 

Sorry ... no pity for the truly useless parasites.

Lower subsidies for single parents, increase spending on birth prevention.

 

The problem is the poor, and the not-so-poor, are having too many children they have no intention on raising to become contributors to society.

 

They don't realize, or don't care, that raising a child is a 20 year commitment. Not just a "look at me" 9 month scheme.

Post 20 describes the problem.  No politician will go near mentioning the real problem.

Just come up with ways to spend other people's money.

 Post 20?

Signed confused. But the rest is correct.

I'm guessing he got his "bash Baltimore City" threads mixed up. Common mistake since that's what most threads on locals are.

What is there to bash about Baltimore? Surely not its efficient government and spending controls or crime.

You know, you are so right about this one. Yet, not one city leader, not one civic leader and not even a religious leader in this city has the courage, or the morality or the decency to say it. They are all pretending that the problem ls somewhere else.

Except for the Mayor and the Commis. who have armed body guards anyone pushing against the pusher will likely be pushing up daisy's. Yes even the matchbook cover reverends of something would not be bullet proof. Doesn't seem that these trigger pullers are exactly God fearing.

 

Thanks LBJ for your utopia. NOT.

As I have said all the social services in the world will not un-do the mess that LBJ and lib/dems created and made worse year after year.

THEY ALREADY HAVE ALL THESE SERVICES.

Now we are driving to the front door and saying 'Hello, we know you are too lazy or to stupid to take advantage of this on your own. So here we will hand-hold you all the way to the promised 'free stuff' land.

Most recently ObamaCare is a prime example of that. It wasn't really about affordable care for the working but rather it was a way to MAKE IT EVEN EASIER for the lame to get Medicaid. What a farce...millions spent on computer systems that most of potential Medicaid people don't have access to. Where as I have said. A free food and sign up at the firehouse would have worked as well or better at a much lower cost.

 

BTW.. I am not against ObamaCare....I am against the wasteful implementation of it.

Hey, I'm sure this approach has never been thought of or tried before anywhere by anybody.

Pugh and the Commish are between a rock and a hard place so they have to say something even if they know it's just lip service to address crime. Shootings and homicides are breaking new records there and are already well above last year's numbers and warm weather is just beginning.

Hey to lazy to go to the library yourself, go to a multitude of free job placements offices....hey we'll bring it to your doorstep.

 Pretty cool BG&E coughs up 500,000 alone FOR ONE BUS to help around 19000 (just 6% of the population) unemployed people find jobs. And that is only BG&E. And there is another one in the pipeline.

 

My electricity goes up, my gas goes up never down. Yet, BG&E indirectly taxes me and you again. It would be nice if a small part of the 1/2 mill soon to be 1 mill or more gave me a buck or two off my bills.

 

Can't wait for a year or two from now when this boondoggle falls flat on its face.  I hope it doesn't... believe it or not....but if history is any indicator............

 

The ultimate would be when the van/bus gets its computers and such stolen by roving gangs of chil'n.  you watch it will happen.
