Don't Shoot, by David M. Kennedy

This was really interesting to read; every time I sat down with it, I was drawn in to the subject and the writing itself. The subject is how to deal with crime in ways that are not 'common sense.' Having an effect on crime means getting to know the area, the community/ies, the people, not "cracking down."

However, reading it at the busiest time of the year meant that I never got to spent more than about 5 pages with it before some new thing had to be handled. So, after 5 weeks and only 50 or 60 pages, I gave up. I hope to get back to it sometime though.
