Statistically, about 15 percent of the population commits crimes of some sort or another, and this percentage is fairly steady across all races and socioeconomic levels. What does change is the types of crimes committed. At the high end, well, Bernie Madoff. Here in Florida, lots of big guys are going down for political activity fraud and PAC malfeasance, and a few big Ponzi schemers.

    The white-collar, upper SES criminal is potentially more dangerous to you than a street mugger. What's a punk kid going to take off you? Your wallet? Your watch and phone? That's a couple hundred bucks, or less. The Ponte Vedra Beach criminal will take your investments and life savings, robbing you of your entire financial wealth and imperiling your future and economic security. So it's not like one type is any less "bad" than the other.
    Very good but, you left out the most vile of all criminals, that being the corrupt politician who can rob you of your freedoms and liberties as well as your wealth. They can and do commit these acts everyday and with the full weight of law behind them, and a gun is no match for these guys. In short, and not to get political, but everyone in this country is gettin' mugged as we sit in front of our computer screens. Mini rant!!

    There's logic for you . . . put an officer in uniform but conceal his handgun. And the point of that would be??????

    There is something to be said for the principle of 'walk softly and carry a big stick.' I prefer this over walking around with a baseball bat slung over my shoulder.
