What major changes occurred in the USA to result in Police, Judges, and Legislators to surrender their obligations for public safety of residents.

The Chicago Tribune article titled: The City and Cook County Government have surrendered their obligation to keep Chicago safe, report the dismal arrest statistics for shootings in Chicago, because everyone is afraid to be a witness or cooperate with police.

“Compound that with the fact that almost three-quarters of offenders charged with violent crime or gun-related offenses are free on electronic monitoring, and it’s little wonder the community lives in terror and is reluctant to cooperate with police.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb, word definitions to this issue in need of reform..

King Solomon

May your father and mother be glad, and may she who gave you birth rejoice!  My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes delight  (Proverbs 25-16)

Definition of Surrender Merriam Webster

1a: to yield to the power, control, or possession of another upon compulsion or demand surrendered the fort

Definition of Marriage

1asee usage paragraph below : the state of being united as spouses in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law

What’s My Point?

The breakdown of family, marriage, and religious beliefs that began in 1950 has led to the surrender.

In My Opinion

If we discern the article, the writer opinion and use of the word surrender implies that the lawlessness taking place is a circle of violence’s is a breakdown of responsibility of government officials.

However, if we discern that the majority of criminals are members of single parent household and have never been taught religious beliefs or laws in their youth.

To end the circle of violence leaves only two options. Arrest and jail criminals en masse, and to return to teaching youth religious beliefs and laws of morality to promote wisdom and love of family marriages as a path to avoid crime and to prosper in their communities as families in their marriages.

If Interested

Read the Source Links below. The Wikipedia article charts indicate when trend of single-family marriages began and incomes of families increase with marriages.

You Decide

Would a government study to compare convicted criminals to single family households and whether they attended a private religious school or a public secular school reveal the truth about crime in the USA?

Who surrendered to reform what laws to bring about the high crime rates in the USA?

Regards and goodwill blogging.
