What's the best way to reclaim a neighborhood from crime? Midnight basketball? Better schools? More dads at home? or does the answer lie in hate letters to accused criminals?
Cleveland councilman Mike Polensek's recent missive to an alleged drug dealer tapped into a flood of public frustration. According to the vocal majority, the anger is justified, and patience for civility is waning. Tuesday morning at nine, we'll talk with Polensek and others about what works when confronting the forces of crime and disrespect. You're invited to join us.

Mike Polensek, Cleveland City Councilman, Ward 11
Kasey Greer, Heights Community Congress
Dr. Ronnie Dunn, Asst. Professor of Urban Affairs, Cleveland State University
