New York is an example of that.
Gun crimes on the rise in Columbus.
Compare to New York
The link itself states:
1. Gun arrests across the five boroughs remain at a record high, according to the latest NYPD crime statistics.
2. While there is an alarming gun violence trend in the city, overall, according to officials, crime is down
I agree with @NoSavingByTheBell position: He didn't make a thread about crime, he made a thread about what he deems to be scary (an opinion)
He validates it by showing how often crazy (expletive) occurs via these videos.
I agree that while guns for example aren't used for committing more crimes than the previous year- they are used for violence,be it domestic, revenge.
unprovoked ass whoopings occurring so often, one can ask: what is happening to my beloved city- that we can witness women cold-cocking men?
Ass butt naked people starting altercations.
Conclusion for me is stats don't provide jack nada nothing as it relates to most of the videos shown. A fight breaks out & is recorded by a phone, but doesn't make the spreadsheet.
Not every person stabbed will report it.
There is a sad reality to watching these videos and reading the justification as if to state- it could be worse. Why?
Something in Columbus Ohio has law makers feeling the need to pass carry conceal for knives & now get this: brass knuckles.
Not sure what statistics can prove the need for brass knuckles. That's the vibe of the people letting us know how scary things have become- when legislature is considered for all things: brass knuckles?
