The folks in charge are not your friends, and are lying to you about basically everything, including plummeting crime rates.

April 1, 2018 – CPD releases March crime stats touting 15 percent drop in overall citywide crime

April 19, 2018 – Hilo, HI – Prosecutor, police tout drop in crime with little budget raises

 

 

 

 

It’s April, 2018, and, in every nation on Earth, crime is dropping to the lowest levels seen they’ve begun keeping records.

There’s a global news blackout in place on the topic, and the serial use of the perjorative word “tout” in controlled press articles on it has been featured in numerous previous posts in this thread. I look forward to later compiling a magazine-length article just on the use of “tout” in this context, in hope of awakening a subset of readers to the fact that, yes, there is a Conspiracy, and that someone did notice, that someone did say something.

In the first account I’ve appended below, from Chicago, IL,  the Police Superintendent avers that it’s the “direct result of the hard work of our officers”, that has led to this unprecedented, quantum decrease in crime, but doesn’t go into specific detail as to what he means. He has deliberately made a general statement. As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda.

In the second example, from my wife’s hometown of Hilo, HI, the Prosecuting Attorney says that “a combination of more prosecutions along with an emphasis on prevention programs” is driving the huge decrease in crime. Can you see how “more prosecutions” and “prevention programs” are both deliberately general statements? As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda.

While, in the third account, from California, the Chief of Police states that it is a “feat” – that it’s something his officers have done that has led to the drop – but doesn’t go on to explain what. As in the previous two examples, he’s deliberately spoken generally. And, as you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda.

As part of the standard protocol used within the global news blackout surrounding the subject, none of the stories  mentions that the local crime drops documented within them are part of a wider trend. That’s a repeatedly-utilized Propaganda technique called “compartmentalization.”

Do you think that the repetitive use of techniques such as these will ultimately help, or harm those using them?

Since the great positive changes that they are trying to obfuscate and explain away are only increasing in speed and magnitude, the populace will eventually – and much sooner than later – awaken to the fact that the folks in charge are not their friends, and are lying to them about basically everything, including plummeting crime rates.

 

 

 

 

April 1, 2018 – CPD releases March crime stats touting 15 percent drop in overall citywide crime

he Chicago Police Department released statistics for the month of March early Sunday that showed a significant drop in overall citywide crime, including decreases in both murders and shootings.

The city’s 2018 crime rate is down by 15 percent from the same time last year, according to CPD.

There were 29 murders in March, marking a 25 percent decrease from the 39 killings recorded in the same month last year, CPD said.

March’s murder count brings the total number of slayings in the year’s first three month’s to 108, which accounts for a 22 percent decrease from the 140 killings tallied through the same time period last year, CPD said.

The department tallied 137 shootings in March, marking a 17 percent drop from the 166 shootings during the same month last year.

“The progress we have seen in the first quarter of the year is a direct result of the hard work of our officers and the investments we have made to make CPD a better agency for everyone,” CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson said in a statement. “Our work is far from over.

April 19, 2018 – Hilo, HI – Prosecutor, police tout drop in crime with little budget raises

Juvenile crime is down 58.5 percent over the past five years, despite heavy caseloads and limited budgets in the Office of the County Prosecutor. Crimes in other categories have also been dropping.

That’s according to Prosecuting Attorney Mitch Roth, the island’s only countywide elected official other than the mayor, who made a budget presentation Wednesday to the County Council Finance Committee.

Roth promoted a combination of more prosecutions along with an emphasis on prevention programs as factors in reducing crime. Last year 1,720 defendants were arrested and charged, compared to 1,012 in 2015.

“I believe it’s paid off,” Roth said. “If we don’t get them off the streets, they’re going to be committing more crimes.”

Deputy prosecutors, who aren’t paid overtime, have high caseloads of 20-30 cases at a time, he said.

In 2016, the latest data available, Hawaii County’s total Index Crime rate and property crime rate decreased 24.1 percent and 26.5 percent respectively, to reach their record low levels

 

April 20, 2018 – California – Police Chief: violent crime dropped 12% in Citrus Heights during 2017

The multi-year crime statistics show homicides in the city were at a five-year low last year, with the only homicide of 2017 occurring when an elderly woman was knocked down during a robbery of a Citrus Heights Rite Aid store in November, leading to her death several days later. One suspect has been arrested in the case, and Lawrence said another suspect has been identified and is expected to be apprehended and charged with robbery and conspiracy.

During his March 22 report, Chief Ron Lawrence called the drop in violent crime a “remarkable feat.

Councilman Albert Fox, who has a background in law enforcement and criminal justice, noted relatively little change in crime when looking at five-year trends and called the crime figures presented “totally acceptable.

(The Chief of Police avers that it is a “feat” – that it’s something his officers have done that has led to the drop – but doesn’t go on to explain what. The councilman lies about the last five years, and chokes on the “totally acceptable” crime figures. He’s choking because he knows with certainty that he and his Secret Handshake Club buddies, the ones who get quoted in newspaper articles, are doomed. – ed)
