Houston, Texas, faces a monumental backlog in criminal cases, with over 260,000 instances being suspended over the last eight years due to personnel shortages. This situation includes more than 4,000 alleged sexual assaults and a significant number of property-related crimes. Houston’s police chief, Troy Finner, has acknowledged the problem and pledged to prioritize and address these suspended cases, particularly those involving sexual assault. This issue emphasizes the broader crisis of safety and law enforcement in America’s cities, exacerbated by movements and policies challenging police funding and effectiveness.

What do you believe is the most effective solution to address the backlog of criminal cases in cities like Houston?
