Expectations of violence
« on: January 30, 2013, 01:03:01 AM »
Tonight on KCRA3 news, the newscaster noted that it was "very impressive" that there had not been a single homicide in Stockton this year.

Draw your own conclusions.

58 murders in '11...71 last year, five in January.  About a third of the killings are gang related.  Stockton's bankrupt and half their cops quit last year.  Welcome to Obama's world.

Coming soon to a city near you.

It *IS* near me! I worked there for years, until my store was shut down for lack of profit and excessive theft.

Interesting.  Stockton has a pop of just under 300,000,  while here in Austin, we have a pop of around a million, with about an average of 26 people a year being killed, under half of theirs.

Was talking to a detective (family across the street, cops for generations). He said most of victims were either out-of-towners, or recently moved here.
