Clinton, citing CIRV: Cut Murders By Half

In a speech today in Philadelphia, Hillary Clinton said if elected, she'll set a goal to cut homicides in half across the country. To do this, she'll build "partnerships between these cities and the Department of Justice."

In a news release that lists how she'd do this, Clinton mentioned Cincinnati and Chicago as cities who've copied the 1990s Boston program that reduced homicides among young men. She said she'd start something called a Gang Violence Reduction Grant.

Cincinnati's version of that program is called CIRV, the Cincinnati Initiative to Reduce Violence. It calls felony offenders on parole and probation into meetings with law enforcement, social service agencies and relatives of murder victims to ty to impress upon the offenders that their behavior has to stop for them and for the broader community - and if it doesn't, police will be on them and their cohorts like white on rice.

Officials involved in the program, which started last summer, are careful to say it's too soon to say too much about its success. But they're pleased with the results so far, and homicides stand at 12 so far this year, compared to 22 at this time last year.

Click here to see what the University of Cincinnati's public relations office issued about CIRV this week.

Any problem??? Hillary'll throw a couple billion at it. You go HillBilly!
It is very amusing to watch her trying to separate herself from her husband.

Whatever Hillary!?

Janet Reno helped escalate the homicide rate greatly in 1 day in Waco.Maybe Hillary can appoint another AG as brilliant as Janet.

Did the writers of the first 4 comments bother to read the linked UC report? Murders are down 61% among the targeted population. Overall, homicides are down significantly. Not only does reducing the number of homicides save lives, but it saves tax dollars in judicial and prison costs.

THE REAL MURDER MACHINE IN THIS COUNTRY IS THE REPUGNICANT PARTY.

HOW MANY LIVES HAVE BEEN LOST IN THEIR ILLEGAL WAR?

HOW MANY AMERICANS HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES DUE TO REPUG'S REFUSAL TO ALLOW UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE?

HOW MANY DIED DUE TO REPUG INCOMPTENCE IN LOUISIANA?

HOW MANY LIVES HAVE BEEN LOST IN BUSH WAR ON DRUGS? HOW MANY LIVES DID THE BUSH CRIME FAMILY DESTROY FROM IMPORTING THE VERY DRUGS THEY ALLEGEDLY TRIED TO STOP?

HOW MANY AMERICANS DRANK THEMSELVES TO DEATH AFTER BUSH AND REAGAN GAVE THEIR COMPANIES SPECIAL TAX BREAKS TO SEND THEIR JOBS OVERSEAS?

HOW MANY AMERICANS HAVE BEEN POISONED OR OTHERWISE KILLED BY UNSAFE PRODUCTS BECAUSE REPUGS REFUSE TO REGULATE THEIR INDUSTRIAL AND CORPORATE CAMPAIGN SPONSORS?

add it all up and it is in the millions.

If you want to die, vote for the Repugs.

If you want to die vote for
Barack Hussein Obama or the Anti-Christ, Hillary Clinton.

This week the HillBilly also said she would set a goal of eliminating breast-cancer in 10 years (Degeneres show Monday).

What's her timetable on eliminating volcanoes (that evil CO2 generator)?

Obama and HIS wife are not who they proclaim to be. Weather you vote for THEM or not, the truth will come out in the end. And if THEY are elected, the world will be a much different place for blacks, whites and all alike. I am glad and PROUD that I am a small town, hard working, god loving, gun packing, law abiding, respectful American. I get up every morning, shower, put my pants or skirt on, and head out to work just like every other American does because I can! That is the privilege of being an American. Be proud and stand up for yourself, your family, the American way ( which has made us the most desirable country in the world) and stay with what you know, Hillary Clinton! Don't take a blinded chance on someone who has a limited record, and a background that has a thousand question marks behind them????????????????. Who is Obama and who is his wife, what do they REALLY stand for and will they look at the COMMON people as equal. I have much more to add but I will save it for a later date.

Well, well, well !

It would seem: Hon. Hillary Clinton is under fire everyday as the foot-tapping, wRong wingnut whackos continue to take pot-shots !

At least she hasn't agreed to collaborate with the 'commie enemy' a.k.a. Nixon - China style !

"The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them." - Lenin

PATHETIC 'HypocRites' !

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE DEMOCRAT 2008 !

( we wonder who now controls our manufacturing sector, what country do our electronics come from, and who now controls 25% of our debt ? The same electronics that guide missiles to shoot down satellites. How many communication satellites does the US have ? The next twin-tower will be in outer-space. Thank your free-trading, child-exploiting wRong wingnut whackos ).

YOu forgot the number of Americans murdered due to Repug gun policies, allowing mentally unstable children to take guns to school.

Karen, please seek the mental help that you so desperately need. Don't break the Prozac in half sweetheart-take the whole thing.

Karen, please advise exactly what your Hillary "REALLY stands for".
Depends on the day of the week & who she's talking to at that precise moment.

The only sane comments to this post have come from the Cheviot Sports Authority. All the rest...liberal wackos!

Seems we have the foot-tapping, HTML stalker with his panties all up in a twist over Hillary !

Oh it is hard to be humble !

PATHETIC 'family values'

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE OBAMA in 2008!

That Prozac thing wasn't funny the first fifty times. It's not funny now. Get some new material.

I can not understand how health care in America can still be a problem. First thing Hillary did last time the Clintons were in the White House was promise to fix health care. She had 8 years to do it then. STILL NOTHING!
