Finally, a job that liberal bleeding hearts can go while supporting their dreams of nanny-statism and villages raising children:
- On Friday, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry F. McCarthy called for increased access to voluntary home visiting programs for new, at-risk parents to address the root causes of violent crime
Pointing to a new report by the anti-crime organization Fight Crime: Invest in Kids Illinois, Superintendent McCarthy said research shows home visiting programs, which provide coaching for at-risk new parents, can cut abuse and neglect by as much as half and significantly reduce future violent crime. Home visiting programs provide trained workers, such as nurses or mental health professionals, to support new, at-risk parents starting before birth through the child’s toddler years. The services work on an ongoing, voluntary basis to help parents cope with the stresses of raising an infant or toddler, support the child’s social and emotional development and ensure infant and maternal health.
Reduce the police staffing numbers to dangerous levels, watch the homicide rates rise, blame everything but the number of police officers, and finally, introduce some new "feel-good" crap that we can see is just going to raise our taxes again and produce zero results for us since we already know how to raise functional human beings.
And does anyone else see the irony of McRevamp911 telling everyone how we're going to alter the way police answer calls, disregarding non-emergency and nonsense calls, while simultaneously pushing this non-police initiative?
We've completely lost our direction thanks to McColumbus.
