Looking at the crime statistics from the 1990's you can see we were in an epidemic of all kinds of crime. This is when Hillary used the very apt term "super predator" which, IMO, doesn't mean just black people as some would like others to believe. With this rise in crime we had the 3 strikes rule which has GREATLY reduced crime and crime rates (they aren't the same, there can be crime that doesn't show up in the crime rates, that is often how governments manipulate their numbers).

An analogy would be like having lots of livestock and people killed by packs of wild wolves and people decided they needed to actively hunt them and they eventually either eradicate them or close to it, then there are less numbers of livestock and people killed. After this happens and some time goes by, some idiots who might have caught a baby wolf decades ago and bred it with their dogs, think that wolves aren't so bad and they DESERVE to roam their native land, so they make safe spaces for them and allow wolves to be brought to these areas. Then, next thing you know, livestock starts being killed (they've forgotten to be on the lookout for wolves by now), and even people are being attacked and killed. So because a few complete idiots (stronger words are really needed here) felt bad for the super predators, they have now put the entire community at risk.

So, what you see here is basically analogous to the criminal situation and is foreshadowing what is going to happen in the US with the criminal justice reforms that are being done by Trump (what a F'in dumb move, people should be FURIOUS especially cops and people in the criminal justice / dept of corrections).

So, enjoy the lowish crime rates while you can, b/c I think we will be seeing a change. Keep stocked with an "arsenal" (all 100 rounds!!, lol - but really sad that it is considered an arsenal...) and be super vigilant about any talk about limiting the 2nd A. Maybe join a local gun club, hunting club, shooting club or even the NRA. These groups get it, they understand what keeps a person from being a victim, and it ain't more midnight basketball, safe spaces or more gun free zones.

We all live in a manipulated world. When you can't even walk down a country road these days without a weapon, you know the country is going to worsen at its best.
Crime is mostly due to people thinking they can get scoot free by doing a crime these days and mostly that is due to the fact they lost confidence in the political structure of its nations leadership.

Crime is on the rise, there is just too much of it to follow up on for the over worked police department. And for the most part, jails are at capacity and prisons are like a vacation for many.

Crime rates are down but population is up so a small town 20-30 years ago felt small and safe now has double the people and more incidents of crime but the crime percentage per capita is actually lower. This feeds the need for people to flee to less populated areas. I see it happening before my very eyes in my hometown.

As the countries population continues to explode the small town feel where you could feel safe letting your kids roam and live life are becoming few and far between.

No offense, but I seriously doubt that the person doing 10 years for two hot checks and possession of a dime bag is going to get out and start a homicidal rampage.

Let's face it... our prison system is nothing more than legal slave labor now.

So sure.. keep the violent ones where they belong... behind bars.

But throwing someone into general population for years for possession of a plant is just stupid.

My 2 cents.

Ah yes, why not just incarcerate everyone and we will eradicate crime with "slavery v2.0". Drive down the population and mimize transportation to accomplish AOC's dream. Healthcare will be single payer. The food chain will be well regulated. Housing crisis solved. No more tuition bubble. Probably could use automation robots to run these "people mills" to save the expense of human guards, plus humans might act on emotion so they cannot be trusted. We can charge the population for their incarceration too, but its okay because we will provide prison jobs well below minimum wage so they can work it off. Remember, when you are in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons you are not a civilian and therefore have no civil rights, so dont bother trying to sue over the conditions.

Sounds like we have achieved the 10 planks of marxism if we continue with a punitive judicial system instead of taking a restorative approach.

Great opinion.

Whining about Trump's absolute joke of a "justice system reform"

...Throwing us a crumb like his tax bs.

You want a more strict justice system?

It's morphed into a rigged business by gunpoint, designed for recidivism/revolving customers under the guise of safety.

This "free country" has turned into a police state.

Have you looked at the people who are being released? Have you looked at the crimes they have committed? Be honest.

If you haven't I think you would be sickened to see people who have been set free in our society in the last year or 2. Murderer's & rapists aren't people who should qualify for this and people who are sentenced to 30-75 years getting out in 6-7 because of over crowding and b/c they "found god".

You can believe what you want, the reports have been on the news for the last couple years and they say to expect to see a lot more of this with the newest reforms. Spend a little time and take a look, and see for yourself. I'm not here to provide search services for everyone. You can take what I say and see if it is correct or believe what the gov want's you to believe, just don't come crying when someone you love is murdered or raped b/c the recidivism rate is 50% in 5 years for murderers and about the same for rapists.

You do realize these Murders and Rapists are getting released because of non violent drug offenders "over-crowding" these prisons, correct?

Justice System........#ing laughable.

Ohio has a Constitutional Carry Bill going through the process and a governor that will sign it if it gets on his desk.

I've lived in some pretty crappy areas back in FL before and never felt the need to carry anything. And that's the state that keeps giving the world face-eating zombies.

Definitely don't feel a need to carry anything here in Northern Suburbia. Methinks you're simply more paranoid than you're willing to admit.

Couldn't help but note that you make no distinction between crime rates and violent crime. Personally, I don't think we should be incarcerating anyone that is not a violent physical threat to others. We can impose other penalties for non-violent crime -- IF it should be a crime at all, and I'm not sure the vast majority of "crimes" should even be crimes.

But let's look at some data:

Crime Remains at Historic Lows in America

Pssst: Crime May Be Near an All-Time Low

The crime rate is down and Donald Trump had nothing to do with it

Hmmm... but what about all those super predators in the 1990's that Hillary was talking about? Well... hmmm...

Lead Poisoning and Crime: Why the Pipeline to Prison is Running Dry

Get the lead out: Clean air tied to decline in violent crime

Oh! And about Trump... how did you so delicately put it? Oh that's right:


...the criminal justice reforms that are being done by Trump (what a F'in dumb move, people should be FURIOUS especially cops and people in the criminal justice / dept of corrections)...


Actually, Trump is working hard to not only reform the justice system, but he is also working to reform one of the main causes of violent crime:

the criminal justice reforms that are being done by Trump (what a F'in dumb move, people should be FURIOUS especially cops and people in the criminal justice / dept of corrections)

I don't say this often, but in this situation, I say loudly and proudly, "GO TRUMP!"

(Good thing I didn't need YOU to provide the real data for me...)

IMO, the real reason we're having low levels of violent crime is the internet. It's hard for people to find the time or energy to be out killing, raping and murdering when they're sitting in a comfortable chair posting memes on the internet. The way to get lower crime levels is to make everyone more comfortable and give them stuff to keep their minds occupied.

IMO, this idea to give everyone a smartphone and get them out of the house again is wrong-headed because once that happens, they will find ways to get into trouble once again. They might be healthier but a mobile human is a human looking for trouble. LOL

EDIT - Of course, in order to make this happen, you have to figure out how to make people comfortable and happy even if they aren't technically making enough money to make that happen. You have to accept the fact that peace and happiness is more important than money.
