Large Cities All Over America Are Degenerating Into Gang-Infested War Zones

 Cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Camden, East St. Louis, New Orleans and Oakland were once bustling with economic activity, but as industry has fled those communities poverty has exploded and so has criminal activity. Meanwhile, financial problems have caused all of those cities to significantly reduce their police forces. Sadly, this same pattern is being repeated in hundreds of communities all over the nation. The mainstream media loves to focus on mass shooters such as Adam Lanza, but the reality is that gang violence is a far greater problem in the United States than mass shooters ever will be. There are approximately 1.4 million gang members living in America today according to the FBI. That number has shot up by a whopping 40 percent just since 2009.

So, what do you do about the gangs if you are a cop in a big city (or maybe anywhere)? You learn to spell on your billboards. Then billboards like the one at get spelled "GANGS OF COPS." Of course, that might wake too many of the people up, right?
