    in our very low-crime small town in Southern California. All the  local police chiefs tell us it's because inmates are being released early due to prison over-crowding. The fact that there aren't enough good-paying jobs, and that crime now looks more like a reasonable alternative to hunger and deprivation than it does when people can find decent work, has not been given as an explanation. Maybe that would be too scary for us to hear, but you can't keep depressing wages, cut emergency benefits, and expect people to just stand around and die.

    •  It especially when all the rich people are crooks. (1+ / 0-)

      Blatantly stealing from everyone else, and eternally getting away with it.  

      People are not stupid. When they see that the consequences of theft, lying and greed are success, safety and social acceptance, well, why shouldn't they get their share of that?
