    More cameras are needed in these hot zone, monitoring of the camera are need round the clock in these area, police patrol round the clock.
    As tax payer we should do everything to protect our quality of life if not it will be eroded.
    Finally when these people drive themselves to the hospital the prosecutor should show up right there.
    I Have alway said this if you are a innocent victim why are you driving yourself to the hospital call 911.
    The hospital have to notify the police once a shooting victim arrive.
    Same if you drive yourself to hospital out of town
    This is my opinion.
