The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Homicide map for January-February 2008.

I read about crime being Pomona's number one problem, but then I take a quick look at this map and wonder who really has blinders on. Crime prevention sure looks like a regional problem, along with affordable housing, homelessness and services for the needy. Come on, are the police in Claremont really better than Pomona's finest? Should San Bernardino hire the Sheriff Department, since Rancho has far less homicides? Did all the police in San Gabriel Valley suddenly go on vacation? Anyone think the problem may lie elsewhere? Here's an idea: how about a per resident minimum that each city must provide for affordable housing/homeless assistance? How about a minimum number of parolees for each city? Let's spread the wealth, so to speak.

Love the maps. It does help to get the larger perspective.
