  Murder Epidemic - Blame the weak mayor and council
  Highest homicide rate by far of any large US city. Why? Well, the mayor and the city council blame it on loose gun laws. Bullshit, and let me tell you why. There has been no change of any relevant gun law in decades. Yet during this city administration the murder rate has skyrocketed. The inept mayor and council are just using this excuse as a smokescreen to hide their failures. The real reason there is a murder epidemic is because the city is a shit hole. No jobs and trashy neighborhoods filled with crime and drugs . . . and that is what is breeding the violence - not gun laws (gun laws have not softened). Why has the city fallen apart? Because of high taxes and the inability of government to incentivise decent housing and motivate businesses to locate and fill jobs. The mayor and council don't have a friggin clue about what motivates the private sector. The fundamental truth is that jobs lead to everything else improving. It is really all about jobs, and the city needs many many many more jobs available. That should be the focus of city government. We must recognize that life will never get better without a strong profitable private sector. But the city government continues to tax and spend and regulate and capitulate to unions and special interests, when in fact they need to do the exact opposite.
