    What in the world? Crime rates are actually at the lowest (per capita) since the 70's. Yes, we do hear/read about so much crime one would think it was a crisis of impending doom rather than just sensualized news.

    "Whenever the vicious portion of the population shall be permitted to gather in bands of hundreds and thousands, and burn churches, ravage and rob provision stores, throw printing presses into rivers, shoot editors, and hang and burn obnoxious persons at pleasure, and with impunity; depend on it, this government cannot last."
    --Abraham Lincoln

    That is the issue here. Our society can not let criminals roam at will and go unpunished. Funding for law enforcement, prosecution, and the courts must be increased. A society is only as good as the treatment of its elders.
