    Let's see robbery rates reduce during a recession which seems backwards. They increase rapidly in areas that are supposedly becoming quickly affluent, like NL due to it's oil boom. That seems backwards as well. I would have thought when people are hungry and poor with lots of time on their hands (unemployed), that they would steal. But that could still be the case in NL because only the very select few are collecting the vast majority of those oil dollars.

    So...what I'm getting from this article it that the system fails us (once again) as we're only getting stats from two years ago, now.

    Just a thought but it'd be nice to base major political and economical decisions on something a LITTLE more up to date....Fr*g sakes, no wonder we're behind in so many areas compared to the rest of even canada, much less the U.S.

    Hard to have a gun to rob a store when youd sooner spend the money on pills, coke, crack, bombs and booze.

    Give all oil revenues to the people, eliminate scarcity and eliminate crime.
