Bank Robberies Down in 2002
The Murder rate is up, but bank robberies are down. I am sure many could see a bigoted angle to that trend. One could claim that murder is up because police are busy investigating bank robberies. That is a preposterous claim. You might be able to say that any unsolved murder cases might be due to an emphasis on bank robberies, but the bank robbery trend needed attention. I am sure that cries of racism or of special protection of corporate interest could be made, and might be true, but bank robberies are a serious crime that is important to the security of the local economy.
