But:
Movement restrictions aimed to stop the spread of the coronavirus may be making violence in homes more frequent, more severe and more dangerous.

Just one more predictable social effect that should have been anticipated, but nothing was done

Yes, but THIS article is about LOS ANGELES, where domestic violence rates are NOT up.

Just have people voluntarily not commit crimes.  If a chud like me can find ways to not steal and not murder, it is possible for people of light and love, like those of LA to not commit crimes.  Has LA tried politely asking people to not crime?  And if they do ask politely, why do people of light and love, like the inhabitants of LA, choose to crime?

FTA: "Even reported family violence, which many worried might increase as families spent more time in close quarters, decreased by 11 percent, Moore said."

It's possible that people are more hesitant to report family violence since you're stuck with them.

Well you know if we gave people housing, and did it quickly, people might not stay with people who hurt them.
But, a house not shared with an abuser isn't society responsibility, apparently.
Because how would people afford iPhones and Starbuck while living their best life, then

So is it really a 23% drop in crime?
Or is it that there are 23% less police and 911 operators to report crimes to?
Or is it that 23% of the crimes are going unreported because either they were home alone and no one is reporting them missing or businesses that were closed and no one knows they were robbed yet?

Sorry, in this day and age I am dubious about any statistics that are reported as soon as someone can rearrange them in a way that looks good.

And yet, after skimming it, my questions stand.  Pre corona and post corona, the murder and theft rate of all the people in my home has remained static.  And I am a chud.  Literally the 3rd worst person to ever exist, thought wise. My actions are about normal though.  However I have been beating my meat a lot recently.

So, if I can keep the murder and theft rate static at zero pre and post corona, you would think that if asked nicely, the people of light and love would be able to come together and make a new age of Aquarius.  I mean to not steal, all you have to do is nothing.  It literally takes zero energy to not steal, where stealing an object takes more than zero energy.  Same with murder.  Just politely ask the Angels to go limp instead of stabbing another angel in the heart.  It can't be that hard, if I do it. i am not an uberman man of steel will.  Or am I?  Is it a human(ish) person of exceptional will and fortitude to not murder?

I think LA should just ask politely.  Come out and say the new policy is that angels don't murder, and that the angels will be a guiding light for all of humanity.  That they will be the guides into a new age of Aquarius.  It will be glorious.  All they have to do is not murder.  Which is super easy.  Even a non angelic chud like me can manage it, so far.

Oh boy, this totally isn't going to be a new favorite republican talking point on how violent liberals are from now until the end of the universe!
