LARRY MENDTE COMMENTARY: Crime in America
In this Commentary by Larry Mendte, we turn our attention to the not-so-successful idea of defunding police, zero bail initiatives, and going soft on fighting crime in general that has plagued many American cities big and small. Those organized “smash and grab” robberies caught on store video cameras have not helped quell what some politicians feel is a mirage of rising crime stats in their own cities, or someone else’s fault, as Larry explains.
There are answers, and Larry offers them after he lays out the facts. We hope you not only watch but then write to Larry at firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know if you agree or disagree with his take. As always, thank you for watching.
