Saving Our Children from Crime

Thanks to the lack of jobs in our area, we have seen a huge increase in non-violent crime. Even my own home was broken into just a few short weeks ago after a spree hit the neighborhood right after one of the packaging factories here was shut down. To me, that’s proof enough that the lack of jobs is the cause behind this sudden increase in crime. Thanks to this issue, I decided to look into ohio home security. I never thought I would actually have to get home security but when you are faced with a problem and the only solution is either buying a gun (which I would be loathe to do) or installing a home security system, I much rather do the latter. Don’t get me wrong, I would resort to violence if I absolutely had to but it is not something that I would rather be forced into. My personal belief is that violence only begets more violence.

Even in this small community I was shocked by how much crime seemed to be going around. Despite that there are fewer jobs, I also believe it is because that there are actually even less jobs for teenagers and young adults. Many of our teens don’t have any kind of focus besides their school and without jobs, especially those who are coming from a poor family, there is very little home for them to escape the vicious cycle of poverty that is gripping them and our community. I hope that we are able to bring more jobs back home soon from overseas so that young men and women feel like they will be able to contribute something to their lives without having to resort to the only two options that apparently exist for them right now; crime or the military.
