Black criminality/black gangs can be a lucrative business for non-profits whose lavish operating budget (many times funded heavily with taxpayer dollars, courtesy of majority black city councils helping to employ friends) makes fantastic headlines in newspapers and local newscasts in an effort to stop the violence.

But officers told WAVE 3 News that this latest arrest proves the program should be axed.
