WASHINGTON - Historically, when the economy heads south, crime rates go up.
But in this recession, things are different in the District.
The murder rate is at its lowest in nearly thirty years. With more on this, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier.

A year after Heller, and yet they won't give credit for it. Shame!!!
In light of what is transpiring in our nation's capitol, more than ever, we need to ensure that places like Free Republic and other like-minded places continue to speak the plain truth. Newspapers are dying and the current administation will either bail them out or allow them to fail. If they are bailed out, they will be even more beholding to the coming socialist agenda. If they are allowed to fail, the powers that be will force the remaining electronic media to fill the void. Local coverage only. No national syndicated news/talk. The "Fairness Doctrine", like it or not.
After that, the internet. Free Republic. And others.
We need to get this FReepathon over and right now. We need to show that we are serious and will continue forward and thrive, not just survive.
If you can spare a couple of bucks, that would be great...If not, God bless you and please stop by the FReepathon thread and give it a bump.
We're all in this together.

Maybe it’s because the criminals are now politicians working under Obama.
All the criminals in DC now are probably ACORN workers being paid with taxpayer dollars.

Are they honestly bragging that their crime rate hasn’t gone up? It’s still the worst in the nation, what the heck do they have to be proud of?

She must have pretty big balls to say that considering the number of murders just in the last week.

Police Chiefs are always eager to take full credit when there’s a downturn in criminal activity, but when there’s an uptick, it always involves socio-economic issues, availability of guns, etc., etc.
