Playing Dirty Political Games

Republicans play dirty political games, often at the cost of citizens. Maryland Republican governor, Larry Hogan is playing dirty political games against Baltimore mayor Brandon Scott by criticizing Scott’s plan to reduce crime. Reducing crime is a very difficult, almost impossible undertaking. Multiple crime plans have been tried all over America and every single one has failed. If even one had succeeded, everyone would have adopted it and there would be no need for other plans. For such a difficult  task to succeed, it requires co-operation and collaboration from all sides for which Hogan’s criticism is anything but..

In my book, “Leave the Rat Race to the Rats”, I detail how to transform the ghetto into a model community. This cannot be done without solving the crime problem. I propose a very comprehensive plan which emphasizes building mutual trust and teamwork between police and the community. It is no overnight solution for so complex a problem, but I have every confidence in its success.

Crime in Baltimore kills mainly black people. Hogan is a Republican so why should he or any other Republican care?
