    The rising crime that we are witnessing on our streets is devastating to our business owners and to the community at large. Again, criminals are becoming much more emboldened, and their actions more vile. We can only combat this problem by strengthening our laws, and making sure that these criminals who are ruining all our lives face absolute justice.
