Choose your own crime stats
« on: January 10, 2013, 10:45:19 AM »
Actual numbers from non-partisan sources.  The below video does a nice job of breaking down the data, but you can take a look at the sources yourself.  There's some great info in here:

2nd Appleseed - Lodi WI - Rifleman/Orange Hat 4/17/11 - special thanks to Dragonfly, Mr. Natural, Lady Vetch, and Trisha
IT1 - Hubertus WI, 5/7/11
IT2 - Racine WI, 6/11/11
IT3 - Suamico WI, 6/18/11

Very good video ^ 5

 Some time back I read a story outlining homocide stats in different areas.

The data provided did not reflect the info I had ,so I checked further and discovered homocide  is different than murder . If a cop or citizen kills someone in self defense it is considered a homocide ,also included in homocide stats are death penalty executions .

Words have exact precise meanings and those who have read the Orwell novel 1984 know certain political ideologues will change words to mislead.

Has anyone besides me used homocide when they really meant murder ?

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
