It's not that B.R. is a more violent city than what it used to be as much as it is that North Baton Rouge has gradually stretched over the entire city, with splotches of middle class to upper class neighborhoods here and there.

Actually, I think he is saying that the city has reverted back to its shity early 90's ways. I mean how else can you explain this increase in murders in the last decade???

quote:

So, using the SPEEDY method, I am going to compare three random earlier years to the last there years.

02 - 59
03 - 41
04 - 47

Total = 147

09 - 75
10 - 69
11 - 56

Total = 200

Murder is up 1.36 times since 02-04, basically a full years worth of additional murders!



Selective data is selective

Nope. For once it looks like Riverside isn't responsible.

The screwed up thing about BR is that virtually everyone considers the city to be from the bridge out to Highland on I-10 and O'Neal on I-12 and everything to the river south of that and north to the airport. With exclusion of Central,Baker and Zachary. But the city is missing large holes of space in that area because they stopped incorporating.


Well, you know, further incorporation would be racist.

If the entire parish were incorporated, it would reduce waste and make statistical analyses easier. This is true for everything from schools to crime


Can't happen - it would "dilute black voting power."

Srsly? This post gets front page?

You just compared stats from last 3 years to a random time 20 years ago? Useless data is useless.

There are three types of lies. Lies, damn lies, and statistics.

Pretty ingenious using city data tho. EBR Parish averages 60-80 murders a year. And BR has the 7th highest murder rate PER CAPITA in the country. More than 30 murders per 100,000. Five times the national average.

But yeah, otherwise we are all over-reacting. Nothing to see here...

Baton Rouge had 56 murders through September 2011 not for the whole year. You would think someone would have caught the error in the OP.

Baton Rouge had 64 murders by November. Speedy may also be missing the UUMV Law. Not exactly sure when it came about, but basically it lowered the stolen vehicles. Many factors affected the drop in some of the crime stats.
Vehicle burglaries being excluded from burglaries
UUMV not being considered Auto Theft
Felony Theft being changed in dollar amount.
ETC.

Speedy does like to beat the drum for baton rouge tho.

I have felt for a long time that the media and the ability to know instantly what happens all over the world gives a misconception that things are getting worse and worse, when quite frankly, how can that be when more and more people are holed up in their basement on the interwebz, instead of outside committing crimes?
