Would a liberal admit Public Housing means a surge in crime in the area?

  1. 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. :p

    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.

  2. How much longer will we average down the failed race that multiculturalists, liberals, educators, media personalities, and their financiers have collectively crammed down our throat?

    The LORD scattered the peoples at Babylon for a very good reason!
  3. 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.

  4. Of course it does.

    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.

    There's a few nice cities outside Toronto. Low crime rate, moderately affluent, few rentals, mostly homeowners. Guess what? They don't let public transportation in. That's the secret...

    I think instead of celebrating diversity we need to celebrate the american melting pot once again.

    Immigrants should adapt to america not vice versa...after all why the heck come here if our culture did not offer superior opportunity.

    and note..

    Speaking to a meeting of young members of her Christian Democrats (CDU), Merkel said allowing people of different cultural backgrounds to live side by side without integrating had not worked in a country that is home to some four million Muslims.

    "This (multicultural) approach has failed, utterly failed," Merkel told the meeting in Potsdam, south of Berlin.

    Merkel faces pressure from within her CDU to take a tougher line on immigrants who don't show a willingness to adapt to German society and her comments appeared intended to pacify her critics.

    She said too little had been required of immigrants in the past and repeated her usual line that they should learn German in order to get by in school and have opportunities on the labor market.

    Multiculturalism does not work. It will destroy a country.

    No one should be naturalized to this country unless they are fluent in English or over 65 or under 5.
  10. Thanks, I needed that.
