Henry Street Crime Committee a joke!
A "Henry Street Crime Committee"' has been started to address crime in Mid Town, what a joke! Now listen, I realize there is a presence of crime in Kingston, so does the mayor, Aldermen and the police chief, but it is not as rampant as the way these political opportunists make it seem. This crime commission members consist of model citizens like Gorden Webb, who hasn't had a sober thought in years. Not a surprise this ' committee' is advocating for auxiliary police. Auxiliary police would be an absolute disaster in this community. It works in NYC, make no mistake about we are not NYC, and despite what some public access pundits want you to believe, were not even close!
So as crime in Kingston continues to plummet, so does the credibility of this crime committee and all associated with it. If people think they can win an election based on scare tactics they're sadly mistaken, I firmly believe the citizens of Kingston are smarter then that.
Again, there are crime issues in Kingston, just like every other community this size. How you address the quality of life crimes is by doing neighborhood meetings, keeping your eyes and ears open and letting the police do their job. Not by forming crime committees and playing Cops 'n' Robbers.
