Crime In Annapolis

On my blog I have been following the crime situation/debate in Annapolis. Basically, the situation is this:

-Annapolis has always had crime.
-Recent violent crimes have started to “penetrate” the richer, more tourist-y areas, so more people started to care.
-Annapolis has more per capita public housing than anywhere in the country.
-Public housing accounts for a disproportionately high share of violent and drug crimes, so more police are needed.
-The mayor refuses to fill 23 vacancies in the police department.
-Police are ordered to be reactionary, rather than proactive. (The factual accuracy of this item has been challenged by an anonomyous source, but at this time I stand by the statement.)
