Do you feel more safe in your neighborhoods today than you did yesterday? Are your kids more safe in their schools and parks today than they were yesterday?

President Obama and Vice President Biden (and others) gave interviews disagreeing with the crime statistics reports. So who is telling the truth? Has VIOLENT crime dropped, or has it increased?

“Things are much better than they used to be. They’re much better than they used to be. If you think about, for example, crime rates.

Much less violent generally in our communities than it was ten or 20 years ago.

Many families can not afford to live in a gated community with security officers. Many families cannot afford a state of the art security systems. Therefore, families follow their local news to keep up with what is going on in their own community.

Therefore, maybe American families should be asked to “honestly” answer the question about VIOLENT crime: So, do you think VIOLENT crime has dropped or increased?
