Rising crime in America has nothing to do with too much freedom, but is a result of not enough opportunity.

Or probaly both...
Disagreement is a sign of diversity.
Umberto Eco

I am wondering why when I think somethink someone always has to tell me it is wrong. I respect different opinion; what I do not respect  is the absolute rejection of mine.
The source of the quote is very edifying, but I will not go into details...

I'm sorry.  I should not have been so dismissive of your comment.  

What I should have said is: working in an area of high crime, I've observed that there is a major correspondence between lack of jobs, racism, poverty and crime.  And the opinion that it is too much freedom which results in crime is something I find dangerous, as it gives those in power reason to deny people their rights and doesn't pose a solution to the real problems plaguing our neighborhoods.
