How to respond to crime
Paint the town pink. Reuters reports:
Authorities in eastern India are painting a crime-infested town pink in the hope that an image makeover will lift the sagging morale of residents who are fed up with the decline in law and order, officials said on Monday.Do note that this pinkaciousness will be implemented using taxpayers' money, but that is not something I am going to complain about. After all, crime has be fought, no?
With the city's two million residents complaining about poor quality of life and depression due to crime, officials said they had decided to paint the city pink ahead of the Hindu festival of light, Diwali, on October 21.
