I Am Fed Up!

While such an initiative is welcome, it is still ironic that Russell Simmons is part of a music industry that glorifies violence and gang wars. That said, such initiatives also point to an unfortunate occurence, the breaking down of people’s faith in government. With such relationship breakdown, the vigilante culture rears its head and gangs are just some of the external manifestations of the same. It only takes a few people giving up on what’s right to create anarchy in a society and I feel more should be done. Such a community initiative should be backed up by other resources, mostly the Police (on behalf of government). The Peacekeepers should at most be the bridge between their community and government agencies, not the law unto themselves. There’s no excuse for a government hands off policy. Otherwise, let the taxpayer then get a choice between remitting taxes or abstaining and investing in the Peacekeepers and other initiatives. I would laud this move by Simmons but it’s only one component in a much bigger need to address a ticking time bomb.
