We're well past the 1950's. We're probably in like the 1970's, when it was cool to talk about civil rights but immediately put you're house up for sale if a black family moved on the block. Soon, we'll be in the 1980's were racism was a thing of the past because "you watch the Cosby Show".

Respect the "e", son. Maybe if your attention-to-detail was higher, you wouldn't have to worry about getting fired for not following procedures.

Yes, how can we remove the speck from our brother's eye before removing the board from our own. To answer that question, I'll take a 33% (since you've already convicted everyone) reduction in violent crime any day.
Also, it's not illegal to pose with an assault rifle, as they're perfectly legal thanks to our founding fathers' foresight.

Gloria, safer or just as safe. There data points aren't really something I would make broad generalizations about. Also, if you examine the there points, you'll see they have absolutely nothing in common. One is a home invasion gone wrong. One is a big question mark that I don't care to prognosticate on publicly because I have a terrible track record. Then, one is just plain, uh, bizarre?
Our crime rate was substantially higher in the 90's for a variety of reasons, but I would submit that it was caused by the crack epidemic and the fact there was still a large population surrounding GP. Today, crack is less of a problem, though, still a problem as recent events would indicate and recent population shifts have left large swaths of neighborhoods surrounding us deserted.
Does this mean I don't think we need to step-up enforcement? Absolutely not. We need to empower our police forces in Grosse Pointe to be more active and engaging.
