Poll shows crime is down, but fear is up

The official statistics released earlier this week say that crime is down. We asked our viewers if they felt safer even though the heinous crime of murder is up when compared to last year. By a large margin, as high as ninety four percent, viewers said no.  One viewer said, “When more than ninety percent of the country is happy that we are talking about implementing the death penalty, it is pretty clear that no one feels safe or safer.” Only six percent of the voters said they felt safer.

    How is crime down when 48murders have been committed just Five months in to the year.That’s like an average on nine murders per month for this small Jewel.This survey needs to be revisited.

    This is a product of communism,this is also what happens when your Constitution becomes amended until it is useless,this is when parents can no longer teach their children right from wrong without being arrested for child abuse,this is what those children have become due to illegal drugs and no one to say no to them,this is what keeps law enforcement in business and makes them more powerful,those children have grown up believing in what they see by Hollywood,this is communism in it’s finest form………and the best is yet to come!.
