    Correction: When we have gotten to a point where even our youth are increasingly being targeted by a growing number of criminals on our streets, we must adjust our reasoning regarding policing. We desperately need more attentive law enforcement, not less. Too many criminals are clearly becoming more emboldened which is damaging to our society.
