Speech didn't jibe with stats
FLINT JOURNAL LETTER TO THE EDITOR
FLINT
THE FLINT JOURNAL FIRST EDITION
Tuesday, March 07, 2006
JOURNAL READER
I watch the crime stat numbers and police force levels along with the effort being put into law enforcement in the city of Flint. According to the city of Flint's Web site, crime declined from 1995 until 2004, which saw a 17 percent increase over 2003. Then in 2005, we saw a 12 percent increase over 2004. All these increases came since Mayor Don Williamson has been in control of the office. I do not understand how that equates to a "major reduction," as the mayor said in his State of the City address recently. Unless you consider jumping 12 percent instead of 17 percent from the year before a "major reduction."

I tried to write less hoping they wouldn't fool around with it too much. I guess it paid off.

Good Article Ted, I believe not only do we need more police officers on the street, we need a action plan. You can put 1,000 officers on the street, but without a plan of action there will still be crime!

Thanks, I've been saying that for years. It is the truth. I'll be posting my action plan within the next week.

ted,
I believe you hit on the truth.

The increase in crime was less than the previous year. That means it was a reduction...at least in the mayors..... [pick one]
a. simple mind
b. calculating & devious mind

You think having a plan of action will stop crime? Or a criminal mind? Not any more than changing the drinking habits of a chronic alcoholic.
