I would bet a kagillion dollars you would never hear that from a liberal politician.
So then... how do you explain this? Why would assitance with rent by the govt amount to more crime? So for every dollar spent on rent the govt has top spend a few more on a cop.
Philadelphia Housing Authority will nearly triple its police force
Responding to chronic complaints about crime in public housing, the Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) will almost triple its police force in the year ahead, adding up to 50 new officers. (This is not city police its housing having their own police dept!)
The move reverses an approach to policing that had been implemented by former executive director Carl R. Greene. During his tenure from 1998 to 2010, Greene reduced the number of officers from 300 to 30, while increasing the ranks of security guards employed by private firms.
The downside of diversity -- What happens when a liberal scholar unearths an inconvenient truth?
IT HAS BECOME increasingly popular to speak of racial and ethnic diversity as a civic strength. From multicultural festivals to pronouncements from political leaders, the message is the same: our differences make us stronger.
But a massive new study, based on detailed interviews of nearly 30,000 people across America, has concluded just the opposite. Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam -- famous for "Bowling Alone," his 2000 book on declining civic engagement -- has found that the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as they do in the most homogenous settings. The study, the largest ever on civic engagement in America, found that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings.
But concentrating low income, poorly educated people with cultural values emphasizing disorder, dereliction, sloth, self gratification over hard work anywhere probably results in a surge in crime. White trash, Black refuse, color doesn't matter. Bums and miscreants are exactly that.
