    @PACky
    Whom are you trying to fool?
    White racists don't sadden you.
    You LOVE white racists.
    They justify your unresolved anger at yourself and provide a convenient outside target for your inner rage; clearly this allows you to ignore your self-hate and at the same time feel you are serving a higher cause. Reflect on your anger. It is blocking your growth.
    Pathetic.

  • Chump,

    Structural racism is endemic in this country. Racists like yourself hurt all citizens with your constructs like "...I feel no need to ingratiate myself with black people by pretending I am something less than I am"

    Consider psychological projection in your case, too. Read up on it:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection

    You seem be quite knowledgeable about unresolved anger. Chump, are you prone to violence?

  • @Fiat124 - I understand that longer response times from police can lead to crimes not being reported. There would need to be a large amount of crimes going unreported to account for the downward vector that we're seeing.

    Over this summer, two bikes were stolen from two different neighbors' back yards. Neither reported them, because their insurance deductible was higher than the value of the bikes. Garages have been tagged and my neighbors have overpainted the tagging without reporting it. An attempt purse snatch down the block from me resulted in the young woman moving back to Michigan, but never reporting it, since nothing was actually stolen.
    A policy change at 911 a couple of years ago has resulted in not sending a beat car out anymore for many classifications of crimes if they have 'already' occurred and aren't 'in-progress' jobs. You get referred to 311 to make a report and if people don't follow through, or if the crime classification is downgraded by the non-emergency call-taker, crime is effectively killed.
    Longer response from the police is part of it, but yes, a lot of crime is simply not being reported.
