Rather than waiting for an end to poverty, I would like to see us look into and adopt best practices that exist in other comparable cities that don't seem to have this problem. The fight that I witnessed today was a sad reminder of the panhandler who was murdered on the strip next to Bennys.

>>> The only solution is to end poverty. There are people on every street corner. As long as the American economy leaves folks behind, we shall see this. Have you noticed that the politicians keep giving money to the rich and undercutting the rest of us. The real question is are you doing enough for justice in the economy or just complaining because the poor have nothing left to do but ask for money from those who have not yet been left behind? Maybe we need a revolution. Greg Gerritt ProsperityForRI.com
