  1. [i]He has been wooing members of the Congressional Black Caucus, such as Rep. Albert R. Wynn (D-Md.), whose district includes Prince George’s communities that have struggled with violent crime.

    “[b]The traditional approach of arrest and prosecution has not worked[/b],” Wynn said. “We need to come up with a much more sophisticated way of addressing this problem.”

    Wynn is sponsoring the bill, which would provide at least [b]$400 million in federal funding over three years to boost law enforcement[/b], continue research and create community-based centers that would connect residents and survivors with social services, counselors and nonprofit organizations involved with mental health, housing and job placement. The funding would be distributed through mayor’s offices and federal agencies with a goal of a 20 percent decrease in gun crime.

    “You cannot have a successful approach to violence when community organizations don’t talk to each other,” Barnes said. “You’ve got to force it so everyone works together.”[/i]

    Arrest and prosecution aren’t working according to the man sponsoring the bill to spend more money on law enforcement. Does that make sense to anyone at all? What we are spending our money on isn’t working so let’s spend more money on it?

    How do these people get elected?
