This is a good rethink to the problem which is desperately needed. The military hammer has been ineffective in stopping recruitment and a sustained attack on communities interests.
I do think that a news freeze would be a great start. Half the motivation is the dream of ending it all publicly as far as community is concerned. A better solution is to allow only that community to see the perps dragged through the streets and thrown to the dogs
Then report it all once a year as of historical interest.
