What's This Statistic?

  • Crime in Illinois continued a steady two-decade decline last year, reported the Illinois State Police in its annual crime-rate index released today.

    While the crime rate was up slightly in suburban Cook County, it was mostly in crimes against property and not violent crime. The crime rate dropped in the collar counties of DuPage, Lake, McHenry and Will.

But the last line of the article:
  • The crime index was up 3.1 percent in Chicago, but down 2.2 percent over the rest of the state.
Crime is up? But we've been hearing it's down, and down big? Is someone fudging the numbers released to the media? Again?

This is BS anyway, remember that "error of +/- 4%" shit?? Calling crime up/down 3% is STATISTICALLY INSIGNIFICANT.

Shortshanks, you suck, you crooked little midget puppet master. You too J-Fed.

AAaawwww, I’m Callin’ “BULLSHIT” on this one! J-fraud told us it was down! Seriously, he said so, and on TV, too! He’s our “Fearless” (and cranially challenged) Leader! He wouldn’t lie to us! He “Has our back”, and such!

crime is down because the big kahuana j-fed is in charge now and he came in here and showed all of us knucklehead city cops how to be the real police... j-fed is such a good cop that he is going to court everyday for probable cause hearings for all the felony pinches he is making... remember, you lead from the top--- i got your back 200 percent--- j-fed has single handedly reduced violent crime in chicago, he has the shitbirds on the run----

Every Chicagoan with a brain knows that crime is up. It finally comes out that Jody lies his ass off and the media sucks it up every chance they get. Whenever some high profile crime comes out or he feels he is on the bubble he orders the books the be cooked. A politician???

The FOP should have a Jody Weis pre-retirement party at the hall. They will make thousands for the goldstar families.

this is all a ploy to steal from us and give a false sense of security to the public.Crime declines,murders are down,but how many agg batts are up.if the politicians give the public a reason to think all these statistics are declining then there's no reason to hire more police and just like good sheeps the public will believe whats on the news and follow the master herder Shortshanks

I guess the Herald's message is quite clear: 'Blow it out yer ass, Shortshanks/WEISel!'

Parse that carefully - crime in the STATE is down. Crime in the collar counties is down, crime in the city is UP but not enough to drive the state numbers up.

In other words, you're safer outside of the city than you were a few years ago.

Good try. Based on last year's data. The state police Crime in Illinois is not released until late the following year. Crime was up last year in Chicago. This is old news.

Forbes Magazine just did their annual " safest city" article. The placed Chicago BELOW Detroit and Cleveland based on crime and accident rate. Now isn't that scarry?? Detroit and Cleveland is considered a safer city than Chicago!! Wow.

OT: SWAT still going to get Sergants pay on the next contract. The only legit unit on CPD. JFED could not pass the standards to be a SWAT supervisor nor could any of the command staff. What a joke.
