(KMOV) – After a violent Sunday night in St. Louis in which 12 people were shot and one died, police are trying to figure out how to prevent future crimes.
Investigations have revealed that taxpayer money intended for crime prevention is being used to waive fees at city rec centers.
According to police, the waived fees are supposed to help prevent crime in theory. Authorities also report that assaults with guns are down 20 percent this year and that most shootings are not random.
Some taxpayers feel more police are needed to reduce crime.
