Gang violence. A self-solving problem.
It IS a self solving problem. The more gang bangers that kill each other off, the fewer the rest of us have to deal with.
While I suppose there are a lot of people that will disagree with me, the truth is the truth. The more they off each other the fewer there are. I guess that do-gooders can't count or they'd see it.
Then again the do-gooders would be appalled to see how many policemen show up to a gang related homicide and say something to the body like, "Well, Bob, this is the first time I have been glad to see you." Cops know how to count. About all the cop that shows up to a gang related killing is annoyed about is the amount of paperwork he's going to have to do.
Although it isn't in the headlines as much, the mob has always left a few bodies laying around in places like New York, Jersey, Providence, RI and Vegas. Truth is it is mob infighting and seldom if ever is an honest citizen victimized. The mob simply doesn't want the heat. They're really quite surgical.
About the only way to get whacked in a mob hit is to be doing business with them. They leave ordinary citizens pretty much alone.
You also have to remember that being in a gang or getting into bed with the mob is a choice. Getting whacked by them generally means that someone is paying the consequences of making a poor choice. Or, As Monty Python said, He chose poorly.
Anyway, the way I see a few things here and there, some problems tend to take care of themselves.
