Marty Online   happy

Police department releases major crime statistics for January to April 2015.

The good news is that there were less reports of Burglary, Robbery, Theft & Carnal Knowledge but in the first quarter of 2015, there are the highest numbers of Murders & Rapes since 2012.






Major Crime in January to April Trending Down, Murders Up

Today, police released crime statistics showing the three year trend in major crimes from 2012 to 2015. While many average citizens would say they feel less safe with every passing year - the statistics show that since 2012, major crime, meaning murder, rape, robbery, burglary, theft and carnal knowledge has been trending down. But murder is now trending down. Comparative statistics between January and April for the past three years show that the murder total of 46 at the end of this year April is the highest in three years. Rape is also up. But robberies are down sharply from the high water mark in 2012. Burglaries are also consistently trending down, and so is theft.

All the figures are for January to April, exclusively.

proving once again, you can make statistics state your case. Carve out those directly involving human harm and take another look

Yes... " Liars can figure, and figures can lie".... A breakdown of the same crimes on AC ,involving tourist's, would probably shed a different light. This doesn't whitewash the sky-high murder rate in areas that we shouldn't be in in the first place.
