Safer still

In between all the articles about some sensational crime, came the report. Once again crime rates have fallen. Murder rates fell by 7%, and property crimes fell by 5%. In southern California the drops are even steeper, closer to 10%.

It really is shocking to me how few politicians have tried to take credit for this. Rather than taking credit for a stunning decrease in crime rates over the past fifteen years, they would rather try to scare the voters about some subject or another.
