I started some complaints about crime in charlotte, I agree and think still it is the same way. But over the few days.. sat down to see what we are really doing.

By saying it is not perfect are we solving the problem no. If you want to be responsible and if you love the city you are in, just do something back to the city. Either by giving more money to the civil servants or donating you time and volunteering so that the people who need to perform there duties can do them more and better.

I am going to write to the tax department for the counties to increase the taxes if needed. Because if we each can donate 100 more and if that help in building more jails and putting the bad guys in.. i am willing to do my part. If you want to face them and beat them up, regardless of age go join some kind of martial arts class and protect yourself and teach 10 people around you how to protect as well. This will help a great deal.

Rather than running away from the problem, try to deal with it. New year is all about promises and wanting to do something different, why not this be one of them you wish to do ?

Cheers!!!

Oh gee, thanks so much for asking them to raise my taxes.

There are expenditures that could be cut in some areas to greatly increase funding in other areas. This is what you need to ask our leaders for, not new taxes.

BTW, the tax department does not set taxes, so you'll be wasting a stamp. And lack of jail space does not solve the problem. Stopping crime before it happens does.

Please people, understand your government before you go writing letters.

While I certainly appreciate your good attitude and willingness to be proactive there are some things you need to understand, one of which is that jail space is not a problem - we have a beautiful new jail which doesn't ever reach 100% occupancy. The problem there is that we don't have enough sheriff's deputies to staff it - there is a lack of funding from the state. I would suggest if you want to write anyone you write the governor.
