Crime Was Down

 

I have mixed emotions about something like this gaining headlines in the daily news. It shows some   type of growth in the city. But what kind are we talking about?  This wasn't just some guy everybody liked back in school. He is confirmation that we have a serious gang problem in Memphis. Where was Uncle Joe and Stevie Moore when they're needed?  This is the real thing. From correction officers to judges. The gangs have a strong presence in the city government.

I think the funeral director was behind this whole thing. Former County Commissioner Joe Ford knows exactly what this service cost the city. Being that the cost of  police protection should have been incurred by his funeral home. Just because they paid the required rental fee for the Cannon Center. Doesn't make it good business.  All money isn't good money. I don't particularly approve of city police being used to provide security for gang members funerals.

The city has given the wrong people a fallen hero. Instead of the message of an untimely death due to an abhorrent lifestyle. People have lost pay and privileges all in an attempt to show their respect to a convicted felon. He just got out of jail. This service drew 2000 people in the daytime during the week. Other than his family and close friends. Probably 1500 of them didn't have jobs. How do you think they earn a living? These are the people who steal your cars and break in your houses. All of them that don't sell dope. How many murderes, rapists and drive-by shooters do you think were in the room? For at least two hours crime was down.
