I am fully aware that criminals move on to areas that give them the least trouble, but tell me this. If everyone employed the grass roots "not in my back yard" philosophy where would these terrorists go? I am also fully aware that many areas people will not force the gangs and the drugs out of their neighborhoods. If these people do not want to stand up and fight for their liberties, rights, and way of life, they simply get what they deserve and all the problems that go with it. To say that if the other part of town has gangs and drugs so we may as well do the same is nothing but garbage.
Dead dealers or gang members do not occupy the next block. Even if I let them live to go somewhere else it is not up to me to clean up every neighborhood in the country. I have done my job by cleaning up my neighborhood as it is everyone else's job to clean up theirs. Is this really a difficult concept for you? To be responsible for your own neighborhood? Lastly, even if we all get stupid and legalize all drugs, the gangs and people who are dealing will still be on the street causing problems. They are not going anywhere by legalizing drugs. To think so is pure fantasy.
