One of the biggest problems in Flint today is violent crime. The recent increase in violent crimes such as rape, homicide and arson can be attributed to poverty, unemployment and several other factors. However, the lack of adequate police enforcement is what allows the violence to continue. Government officials laid off many law enforcement officers in Flint, resulting in the city having one of the highest civilian-to-cop ratios in the country. Check out this video to see what the people of Flint are saying about the decrease in police officers.
