It's near the end of February so I thought I'd check in to see how we're doing crime-wise compared to last year. Here in the Ridge we're down so far in murders, rapes, robbery, assault, burglary, and grand larceny auto. We're up in grand larceny.

Overall we're down -6.34% from last year. Our 2-year change is -16.35, 7 year change is -33.50, and our 15 year change is -78.75. But don't forget that holiday murder rush we had at the end of 2007.

City wide is not so good. We're up in murder, rape, robbery, assault, and grand larceny auto. We're down in burglary and grand larceny.

Overall city wide we're up .31 since last year.

So what does all this mean? Hell if I know. I'm still pissed off Starbucks is closing early tomorrow.
