fact averse and motherfricking stupid


What is averse or stupid about learning self control and social norms.

Self control is one of the biggest predictors of success in life.

Society has "norms" because when people act this way, civillization runs more smoothly. When people act outside these norms, the rest of society will either get them to comply or get rid of them.

I have no idea what this thread is really about because I haven't read it all. But the idea that one generation is better or worse than the other is kind of lame. Norms change, etc, but that's a different issue.

re: One thing the younger generation doesn't get enough credit for


I could sort of agree with that

I just don't get why this place is so fact averse

Why can't these fricking clowns accept that less violence today is a good thing? But instead it has to be set to some fictional backdrop that they literally made up on the fricking spot about people being too lazy to be violent. Then you have your usual anecdotes from Zach about some bull shite one of his dumb friends told him.

It can't be that less violence is good. It somehow HAS to be an unintended positive consequence of other negative shite that's overwhelming us. We're all lazy pot heads who don't have jobs and just play video games all day. Yeah, that's the only possible explanation for this generation being less violent than previous generations. Makes perfect fricking sense in this perverted asylum of ignorance.

re: One thing the younger generation doesn't get enough credit for


did you start this thread just so you could brag about your own generation? because I dont see much evidence to warrant calling a trend in societal behavior an "achievement". I didnt know there was a huge movement among young people against violent crime. I didnt know someone started a facebook group about decreasing rape frequency. i didnt know changes in frequencies of aggregate decision making of millions of people was a result of their conscious awareness. Armed conflicts are decreasing by decade in africa - is it because they all decided to be nicer to each other? I dont know.

what I do know, is that you start an extraordinary number of threads solely to appeal to your own vanity.

Not sure why anyone would be so quick to dismiss accusations of local police departments (from which the federal crime stats are gleaned) are cooking the statistical book.

It's been going on in Dallas for awhile.

Experts: Dallas undercount of assaults builds 'artificial image'
quote:

One man beat a stranger with a pipe. Another battered a disabled person with a walking cane. Another smashed a large glass mug on his brother's face.

Though none of the victims was seriously injured, state and federal authorities say each of the attacks was an aggravated assault.

But Dallas police disagree.

The Police Department classified the attacks as lesser offenses when reporting them to the authorities who collect crime statistics from cities across the nation. As a result, the offenses were not factored into Dallas' reported violent crime rate.

LINK

quote:

Now that the crime stats from last year are in, Houston has slipped into second and Dallas into third. That’s a big coup for city officials, who have made lowering the city’s position on this list one of their top priorities in recent years.

To get out of the top spots, the city has substantially increased the size of its police force. But police officials have also changed their procedures for reporting crime ED. NOTE: SURPRISE, SURPRISE. Some of the changes have conformed to federal guidelines. A Dallas Morning News investigation last year showed that other changes have not. Former police Chief David Kunkle said the guidelines aren’t clear and it wouldn’t be wise to follow them like they were “in the Bible.”

LINK

quote:

The major stories:

– Police not counting all crimes – Omitting legitimate auto burglary cases improves stats; system being reviewed
– Do police count all burglaries? Kunkle says intent must be clear in break-ins as some fault classification system
– Experts: Dallas undercount of assaults builds ‘artificial image’

And there’s more:

– Crime counts to change — Procedural move, review planned after car break-ins underreported
– Steve Blow: Truth takes a beating in Dallas crime stats
– Editorial: Crime statistics must be accurate
– Dallas police count more car burglary reports

LINK

quote:

Dallas police are enthusiastically touting a 12 percent drop in overall crime this year.

But nearly a third of that reduction is because of a new policy that makes it harder for store owners to report shoplifting cases under $50, The Dallas Morning News has found.

Police Chief David Brown last week disputed that finding, saying the low numbers of reported retail thefts are the result of good police work, not the change in reporting policy. He said his department’s new crackdown on “fences” — people who buy and sell stolen goods — drove shoplifting lower.

He said the new focus also has led to this year’s double-digit drops in burglaries and other types of theft. These reductions have caused the drop in the overall crime rate, which consists mostly of property crimes.

“Shutting down fence operations has a big impact on the black market for stolen property, reducing the incentive for thieves to steal,” Brown said.

The News looked specifically at shoplifting, and in those cases found otherwise.

LINK

New York City:

quote:

There are disturbing claims from a police veteran that the NYPD intentionally tried to under report crime rates.

He claims, in an exclusive television interview, that in one precinct in Queens, the severities of some crimes were systematically downgraded.

Sergeant Borrelli is the latest in a growing list of police officers to claim widespread manipulation of NYPD crime data. In 2010, Officer Adrian Schoolcraft told Eyewitness News it happened all the time in the 81st Precinct.

"I recorded multiple down-grading of crimes, crime reports from citizens who were victims," Schoolcraft said.

Milwaukee:

quote:

Milwaukee police have acknowledged misreporting thousands of aggravated assaults as minor crimes - but a Journal Sentinel review found that other serious crimes have gone missing from the city's violent crime rate.

Why did crime went up the go down? Regulations kill youth jobs? Welfare state? Drug game?

Almost 4 pages and no hard stats indicting violent crime by age bracket as a % of total population of that age bracket.

This is why we re elected Obama - more people care about the message than whether or not it is true.

Unicorns. FORWARD!

I don't doubt that the books are being cooked

I just don't think it's anything new

re: One thing the younger generation doesn't get enough credit for


quote:

For years, Americans ranked crime at or near the top of their list of urgent issues. Every politician, from alderman to President, was expected to have a crime-fighting agenda, yet many experts despaired of solutions. By 1991, the murder rate in the U.S. reached a near record 9.8 per 100,000 people. Meanwhile, criminologists began to theorize that a looming generation of so-called superpredators would soon make things even worse.

(See the top 10 crime stories of 2009.)
Then, a breakthrough. Crime rates started falling. Apart from a few bumps and plateaus, they continued to drop through boom times and recessions, through peace and war, under Democrats and Republicans. Last year's murder rate may be the lowest since the mid-1960s, according to preliminary statistics released by the Department of Justice. The human dimension of this turnaround is extraordinary: had the rate remained unchanged, an additional 170,000 Americans would have been murdered in the years since 1992. That's more U.S. lives than were lost in combat in World War I, Korea, Vietnam and Iraq — combined. In a single year, 2008, lower crime rates meant 40,000 fewer rapes, 380,000 fewer robberies, half a million fewer aggravated assaults and 1.6 million fewer burglaries than we would have seen if rates had remained at peak levels.

Seems hard to believe that females have almost the same violent crime rate these days as males.
