I am a big history buff and normally fill my spare time with historical documentaries and such, but lately I’ve been on a true crime kick, and a
couple things just stand out to me..
1) if anyone isn’t aware , every police department has what is called a “clearance rate”..
A “clearance rate” is the percentage of reported violent or burglary type crimes where they made an arrest..not a conviction.. that is part of the
Well you can check your towns clearance rate and most are not good... even some small towns will have 15% or less of an arrest rate for bigger
crimes.. and by bigger I mean crimes that everyone considers crimes..
It doesn’t cover traffic , drug or other victimless crimes..
2) I am shocked at how often everyone knows who did it, but they are afraid of double jeopardy ruining their chances of convicting them..SO THEY WALK
FREE.. sometimes for years, sometimes for ever..
So considering those 2 points, WHY and the hell are we devoting 100x’s the resources into nonviolent/victimless crimes like drug and traffic
Now I’m not saying there shouldn’t be laws against victimless crimes, I am all for DUI’s..
BUT SHOULD WE REALLY ONLY HAVE 2 OFFICERS WORKING RAPES AND 400 drug agents?!?!
We wonder why only half of murders are solved and less than that when concerning rapes and robberies.... Well it’s obvious...
There is no money I solving violent crimes...
In fact solving violent crimes costs boocoo and the only return on investment is that a murderer is off the streets..
What about drug and traffic violations?? Those are extremely profitable..
Hell half the towns and cities in the country are primarily funded by the fines over victimless crimes..
It just seems so obviously corrupt...
The stuff we all actually want and care about isn’t profitable, so it just gets Kip service and the scraps, while drug busts and confiscations are
funded to the gills... why??
Because it pays..
