Official U.S. crime stats don't match reality
« on: May 06, 2024, 11:30:34 PM »
"Well, no *expletive deleted*it" you're probably thinking, as the White House claims crime is at a 50-year low.

Now it is documented.

The Marshall Project reported that 31 percent of the 18,000 law enforcement agencies across the U.S. failed to report crime data to the FBI’s national database after transitioning to a new data collection system, according to the latest statistics from the FBI. That’s a slight improvement from 2021, when 40 percent of law enforcement agencies didn’t report crime data. Still, it’s a glaring blind spot, especially when that data is missing from some of the largest metro areas dealing with rampant, out-of-control crime.

Additionally, the stats are skewed by the fact that many jurisdictions have lefty DAs that don't want to prosecute criminals, leading to less crimes being reported by victims.

  • Sooner or later law output will exceed court input

I'm getting in the habit of doubling or halving, as appropriate, any statistics from da goobermink.

Sooner or later, law output will become greater than Court input.
