Many years ago, I had come up with a neighborhood mobile watch patrol program for the local city I was living in. It was well received, and it didn’t cost the taxpayers a dime, other than the cost of a police liaison who gave instructions every other week for 30 minutes to the volunteer groups who signed up. For the last 20+ years I’ve always been interested in crime and police technologies. Therefore, the other day I was going through our local crime statistics. I made a few very interesting observations I’d like to share with you if you have a few moments.What I noticed is that violent crimes were up in our area, but also home break-ins and business break-ins, and grand theft. It appears that people were stealing things that they needed, rather than just mere items they could go and sell at a pawn shop. Why is this I wondered? Could it be a sign of the economy, fewer people have jobs, and the reality that our real unemployment is approaching 20% if we take into consideration everyone who is underemployed and unable to pay their bills, has dropped out of labor market, or has just finished high school or college but can’t find a job yet. You see we are not counting those people in our unemployment figures.In the Wall Street Journal they noted on October 18, 2012 in an article; “2011 Saw 17% Jump In Violent Crimes” by Danielle Ryan that all is not as safe as it has been in previous years; “Rapes, robberies, and assaults may have just returned to normal levels after historic lows, experts say.” Why is this? I truly believe it is because of the Obama Administration’s dismal performance of our economy, and inability to help the free-market create jobs. When people have nothing to do, and they don’t have anything but a pot to piss in they get stressed out, and they figure out ways of getting those things they need, want, or desire but cannot afford because they are not working. That doesn’t make it right, but I see some of these crime rates reflect that now.Similarly, I think that much of this socialist style class warfare that’s been purported by President Obama is making people feel as if they are victims, as President Obama keeps telling everyone that it is not their fault they haven’t succeeded, it’s the one percentile that are not paying enough taxes, or the people on Wall Street. What I find interesting about this is that President Obama has gotten significant campaign contributions from both those groups. Nevertheless, his political rhetoric is filtering down and making people feel sorry for themselves and that they deserve more, but somehow I’ve been cheated.This sets up the mindset of average citizens who are economically hurting that it is okay to go get what they should have had and what they deserve, but were unable to get or achieve because other people destroyed their opportunity and cheated their way to the top. This sets a really bad precedent and I do believe that the high crime rates do have their roots in the Obama Administration’s politics. Although I cannot prove this, it is my solid opinion after watching crime rates for over 20 years. We have a problem with the attitude which has permeated our society and the victim mentality which is caused by a nanny state strategy. Please consider all this and think on it.
