LONG BEACH >> Police Chief Jim McDonnell reported today that Long Beach could post its lowest violent crime numbers in 41 years.
For example, drive down the previously stable 4th Street corridor in the Second District. Take note of the wall to wall "for rent" signs. Residents are fleeing not because they want a better climate, or cheaper rent, but rather because they no longer feel safe. All too often this is learned by sad experience on the mean streets of Long Beach. To the extent that "crime is down", it is so only because law abiding residents have severely restricted their activities. Few of them are foolhardy enough to venture outside after dark, and few venture outside during daylight, except when absolutely necessary.
Long Beach might have eventually gone the way of many eastern cities on its own. Being home to one of the State's most radical of the wastefully expensive taxpayer funded State universities where every loony social scheme and manipulative punitive economic scheme known to man are routinely dreamed up by the occupiers, thenceforth to be imposed by their revolutionary political pals, one may be forgiven for making the observation that the city has gotten onto the fast-track.
