And it is getting worse every year. This is whatpolice departments around the country said in their reports last week. There were morerobberies and murders this year than last year. The subways are more dangerous. The streets aremore dangerous. You may not even be safe in your own home. Why is the problem so serious now? This is not an easy question to answer. There may not be asingle answer. Many problems together seem to make cities so dangerous. One of the problems is money. To fight crime a city needs police officers, cars and guns. Thesecost a lot of money. But right now cities do not have much extra money. So there are not enoughpolice officers, cars and guns for the cities. Another problem is drugs. Crime studies show that many criminals use and sell drugs. Afterthey start taking drugs, they want to have more. But drugs are very expensive. So these peoplemay sell drugs to other people to make money. Or they may steal money to get more drugs. there is an even more important cause of crime. Cities have rich and poor neighborhoods. Inthe poor neighborhoods, the schools are often very bad. Jobs are hard to find. Manx youngpeople dont have much hope for a better life. They only know one way to make a better livingfor themselves. That way is to sell drugs or steal. So. some of these young people becomecriminals. It is not going to be easy to change these crime problems. We must first change many of thelaws about drugs and guns. We much change the way cities spend their money. We must alsobegin to make changes in the neighborhoods.
