Hmmmm.... Illegal immigration on the rise and violent crimes rising ??? I guess without viewing the breakdown of ethnicity of who's actually committing these crimes I should not assume... I'm sure there is no correlation between the two , is there ??? The reason for the lower burglary rate is easy to figure out. Either people are afraid to rob a house when one of it's 20 occupants are home or the disgruntled laid off taxpayer guy is sitting around playing with his guns. Dammmm and it's that same poor laid off guy, who while looking at his tax w2 forms this year, observed how much he contributed to that same house of 20 people. So you see in a way, the taxpayer is helping to cut down on crime. Non-Violent crimes at least. The government in which we put so much trust ( lol ) and support in, should really look into an eye for an eye mentality. I bet we would see a reduction in violent crime as well. Just a few thoughts.
