We are sorely lacking in the arrests and successful prosecution of criminals. Once criminals know that they can be caught quickly and stand a high probability of being prosecuted and convicted, we could see a decline in crime.
We often read of so many marijuana trees being burnt, so many guns and ammunition being retrieved, etc. but not much on catching those responsible. This is where we have been falling down badly.
Yes, we want drugs and guns off the streets. But, more so, we want those responsible for them to be behind bars. It makes absolutely no sense in the whole scheme of public security and safety to have these criminals running around freely to continue their illegal activities.
