Cleveland Foreclosure Woes Adding To Crime Problem

Is this a gun problem too? I think not.

Working in the commercial real estate business, I really feel for people living in these communities. But when the police don't even show up when called, or ignore drug dealers and other criminals using a vacant lot to "store" items they are systematically stripping from vacated homes, Cleveland Mayor Jackson cannot continue to hide behind emotional "we have a gun violence problem" sloganeering. His city has drug problems. And with police apparently arbitrarily choosing which runs to make, Major Jackson appears to have a labor problem he sorely needs to address. For the children.
