  •  You are guilty of wanting to have it both ways. (0+ / 0-)

    Do you really want people to pay attention to their local crime stories? Seriously?  It's best to suppress those stories for the sake of harmony in the cities.

    But we are also supposed to believe that crime is dropping too.  So what do you want? Wall to wall national coverage of home invasions, gun battles at the hang outs, gang rapes? or the national news covering the occassional man bites dog story and not much else. I don't think your like the results of 24 /7 episodes of Cops. The state and social consensus would collapse.

    A Catholic, Jew, Muslim and Buddhist walk into Al Aqsa Mosque. Buddhist immediately exclaims: "excuse me I appear to be in the wrong joke."
