Clearly this means we need state control.

The majority of crime is committed by those on the bottom of the economic totem pole, but you're not sure why?

...

Really?

Although the exact cause remains unclear, experts have pointed to factors such as better policing, demographic changes, higher incarceration rates, a drop in cocaine use and the introduction of a variety of social programs.

And I stopped reading there. Author doesn't know about leaded gas and abortion, each of which have been correlated in different countries. We had both at once and 20 years later there was a whole cohort changed.

It's Tennessee. Most of the crimes involve pig rustling, meth making, and moonshining.

What a minute.  Most of the states on the list have armed teachers.....actually, most of the states on the list have armed everybody.  According to the NRA:  More Guns = Less Crime.   I'm this is another Obama plot.

Well actually most of the crime is probably from Shelby county (Memphis) where you have a bunch of gang banging melanin enhanced americans. If it was ceded to Mississippi or Arkansas they would probably have the highest crime rate.

It's Alaska. Hang around there long enough and you too could have an "encounter" with a very lonely bear or moose.

You know we've had a slow start to the season here in Florida, but our off-season training is about to pay off. I think once we get some of the injuries behind us, the team will push forward into the win colomn more often. With faith and perserverence we can beat those other teams.

37% of women who live in Alaska is about nineteen people. What counts as some form of sexual assault though? And are we sure they really suffered it?
 
2013-10-06 02:27:08 PM  
Instead of thinking about the women as being liars, perhaps people who were sexually assaulted are looking to get as far away from their previous circumstances and go to Alaska as an extreme escape.

Also something to think about, do these numbers include Native American females, as there are many tribes, and there have been many articles written lately about the continuing sexual assault of Native American females by both Native American males and non Native American males where the crimes committed on tribal land are only punishable if prosecuted in the Native American trial system, and many times the men simply come and go as they please, and the women never find justice.

no, you're right. Let's take an unsubstantiated, self-reported number about an important issue and use it to spin up paranoia. Then let's use that emotion to fund a bunch of useless or perhaps counterproductive government programs-- heck let's toss in some ineffective laws and changes to rules of evidence too. And if anyone dares question the party line call them bigoted.

What is the author's definition of "some form of sexual assault?"  Does it include a civil assault where there's merely a fear of contact?  If that's the case then getting hit on in a bar by a drunk guy is a sexual assault.

I want to know the number of actual sexual assaults. Assault assaults. Not just "some form."  That label is meaningless.

Nevada has a lower college graduation rate than either TN or SC and only LA is lower and not by much. They also have the highest death rates from smoking, drinking and other drugs. That sounds about right for a whole state full of losers. I mean that literally because of the prevalence of gambling problems there too.

Yes. Our court systems are filled with violent klansmen. Most of the murders that happened here last year were 80% members of the klan. Nailed it.

The Delaware numbers are likely skewed not just due to Wilmington, but due to an overall low population and close proximity to Philadelphia and Baltimore, with crimes and criminals that tend to spill over into Delaware on occasion.
