It's a Crime How There's No Crime
Read over the weekend that Sherry Jacobson, Metro columnist at The Dallas Morning News, had an explanation for why Dallas tops the FBI's list of crime-ridden cities: We're just too good at reporting our crimes. So, see, no reason to pay attention to the F.B.I.; no reason to even look at the Total Crime Index, on which Dallas had the worst ranking, with 8,484.4 reported crimes per 100,000 people---or one crime for each 12 people. "Dallas is light-years ahead of most major cities in their reporting process," Senior Cpl. Chad Smith, a DPD crime analyst, told Jacobson. So, see? Stop reporting crime. That's how you reduce the crime rate.
