    There are strategies being used? Pray tell, what are they? So what happened to making it 'illegal' to be in or part of a gang?? What was actually accomplished with that, or was it just more talk to quiet the public?

    If they had all the police carrying guns then they would be able to stop anybody in the area of a shooting. That commissioner is not serious about crime. Maybe it is time for a hardcore policeman that cares about the community to take the helm. I don't know how they can have shootings within seconds from their police stations and they cannot have somebody caught with a gun.
