Wal-Mart Crime report August 2014

Wal-Mart Crime report July 2014



Do you think it would be a good campaign slogan to tell the voters that not only will the candidate stand up to Walmart and Sam's Club but he'll steal their beer, paper towels and cashews if he can get away with it?

It doesn't quite/…

In several past posts I have been attempting to find out how much various contributing causes impact violent crime. The leading long term cause for violent crime is almost certainly early child abuse that leads to escalating violence later in life but other things clearly are also/…

I have heard an enormous amount of talk about justice from the traditional media and the political establishment. This has, of course, been going on for a long time and I'm certainly everyone has as well.
