(KPLR) – Can focusing on something small stop something big.  Here's JB with, “The Way It Oughta Be”.

I recently reported on a number of violent incidents, and there was something I noticed.  Trash was on the ground all around those areas.

I know it might sound silly, but I can't help believe that the two go hand in hand.

Over the years police have told me that the small, nuisance type crimes can lead to bigger ones.

So if you ever feel helpless when it comes to fighting crime, you shouldn't.

Pick up some trash.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be.”
