More Salisbury Crime Stat Manipulation
Look I am in 100% behind the SPD and what they do, this is aimed toward Jim and the crime numbers he likes to talk about. These two different charts on the SPD crime page show the discrepancies. Notice at the top it shows no murders from and catch the date 1/18/11 - 4/17/11 so if any crimes occurred before Jan 18 they are not included. The bottom chart shows 1 Homicide mentioned that isn't at the top. Compare these numbers yourself they don't match up.
This seems like more of Jim trying to make it look like he was masterful in wanting to get rid of Chief Webster and that the Safe Streets idea is working. I'm not saying it isn't having some impact, but not on the level Jim wants you to believe. Let us remember the Centre and WalMart north have reportedly been asked to not report theft unless it reaches a certain financial threshold set by Jim.
