We are spending billions of dollars on what doesn't work including:
  1. Increasing the number of police on the streets, with high-powered weapons and highly-militarized, crime-fighting equipment
  2. Bringing in the AFT, DEA, FBI, DHS, CIA, National Guard, U.S. Army, et cetera
  3. Arresting, incarcerating and criminalizing youth
  4. Focusing mostly on drug and gang activity
  5. Using university research to create strategies for the streets
  6. Intervening at the point of violence
  7. Having the wrong people at the discussion table who don't know what causes youth violence and that have few new ideas for solving the problem of youth violence
  8. Systematically reducing youth engagement activities and opportunities
  9. Providing sub-par educational facilities and opportunities for students
  10. Blaming heavily the availability of guns for the violence
  11. Planning to reduce violence a week before you expect the violence
  12. Funding violence prevention programs in a disjointed, haphazard manner
