Well our local liberal rag was reporting on the sharp rise in murders in the greater Orlando area. One line I just loved was from a local researcher of crime trends. He stated that a quick surface review would indicate that it appears that criminals who formally would just rob compliant victims are increasingly killing them after the victims have given them everything they asked for. He also stated that this should be researched further though before such conclusions could be firmly drawn.
Ummm, how? Maybe he should try being robbed?
Of course they still won't go so far as to recommend something as crazy as learning to defend yourself and fight for your life?
