Well, we have three completely different numbers. You first mentioned crime rate, then Kardinal replied with murder rate, and now you come back with number of shootings. Make up your mind what you're talking about and then everyone can compare apples to apples.
my apologies...i forgot our resident semantic expert would be in here
...SHOOTINGS are up...shootings are crime too, you know.
my point was more about what i have said before...while the overall crime rate MAY be down, that isn't very indicative of the whole story...it really depends on where you live and some crimes (often the violent ones) may be quite higher...that was really what my point was.--
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
