Problems in the city and taking a stand.

Here's a very good opinion piece written by Don Samuels, a Minneapolis city councilman, on his confrontation with a man urinating in public.  He story highlights the problems one encounters in an area where family breakdown and loss of character are more pronounced than in other places.  Lack of manners not the least of them.  However, he also highlights what happens when we get involved.  How he was able to redeem the situation and hopefully turn around the lives of a couple of young men.  (Warning:  Don't necessary try doing this yourself.)

It's worth reading.  It's titled, "Not in my city - Urinating in public? Menacing your fellow citizens? Taking what isn't yours?"
