Isn't that cool. Read this out of the Los Angeles Times. See the benefit of open borders. Okay everyone, just go back to sleep!
Los Angeles Murders Under 300 In 2010, Fewest Since 1967
For the first time in more than four decades, Los Angeles is on track to end the year with fewer than 300 killings. The Los Angeles Times says it is a milestone in a steady decline of homicides that has changed the quality of life in many neighborhoods and defied predictions that a bad economy would inexorably lead to higher crime. As of mid-afternoon yesterday, the police department had tallied 291 homicides in 2010. The city is likely to record the fewest number of killings since 1967, when its population was almost 30 percent smaller.
Strikingly, homicides in the city have dropped by about one-third since 2007, the last full year before the economic downturn. The change, experts say, is not easily explained and is probably the result of several factors working together, including effective crime-fighting strategies, strict sentencing laws that have greatly increased the number of people in prison, demographic shifts. and sociological influences. A significant factor, said Columbia University law Prof. Jeffrey Fagan, is the absence of a drug epidemic. The three periods in U.S. history when homicides have spiked, he said, coincide with the emergence of heroin, powder cocaine and crack cocaine, each of which gave rise to “a chaotic, violent street drug culture.”
That was the environment when the Rodney King verdict was announced on April 29, 1992. Riots erupted, and shortly after 9:00 p.m., the first 2,000 California Army National Guard (CA ARNG) soldiers were requested by the governor. The call was not expected because the CA ARNG had repeatedly been assured they would not be needed for any disturbances resulting from the Rodney King verdict. As a consequence of those assurances, considerable riot control equipment had been loaned to other agencies. In spite of the no-waming start, there were 2,000 Guardsmen marshaled in Southern California armories within six hours.
