Um, riiiight. In the middle of a recession/depression, in the summertime, crime is low? I say "LIAR"!

People don't have jobs, they don't have food, they are angry and hungry. And you are telling me they are peaceful? BULLSHIT!

I think a lot of people have given up on reporting things like theft, etc. It doesn't mean it isn't happening ~~ it's just that not as many people go to the trouble of calling the police & reporting it.

Exactly, especially when police don't even respond to small crime anymore.
