After a year of alarming homicide rates, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson is cracking down with a laser-like focus on illegal guns. It's not exactly a new plan, but, experts say this is what reduces crime. Criminologist Lawrence Sherman has studied seen this work in seven different studies around the world, in places as wide-ranging as Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Bogota, Colombia. "We don't know why it works, but the same is true for antibiotics.... What we do know is that it works," Sherman says. Let's hope so. Tuesday morning at 9 a.m., we'll talk with criminologists, council members, community leaders and you about this new crime-fighting plan.
