HOME OWNERSHIP, it is the one factor that will depress crime anywhere, any city, any nation, anywhere...pride of ownership; this is where we have to focus, help people legitimately afford and own
There is no factor that depresses crime like home ownership...along with business ownership, business that thrives...
You need to understand that the vast majority of low wealth persons, poorer persons are not bad people, are not criminals and do not commit crime and never will, most are God fearing and love nation and flag and their families like any other…notice I did not even invoke color…just poverty…I am talking white and black/brown poverty….the problem is that the vast majority of criminals, hardened ones and all sorts do live in poorer communities…this is the issue. The gut wrenching issue is that poor persons are more often victims of crime that the low life-criminal themselves.
This home ownership is a conversation we must have. I am talking about proper jobs, stable, that could support mortgages etc. Nothing for free…pride of ownership. No one giving you anything for free, you working hard like others to buy your own thing, your own piece of the dream.
