CBS News headline from September 13, 2010 <FBI: Violent Crime Down for 3rd Straight Year>
Further proof that it is really bad out there under the Obamaconomy. Even criminals are having a hard time finding jobs.
The article doesn't delve into the internal details of the FBI report, but chances are that criminals are suffering the same pressures as their law-abiding countrymen, namely Public Sector in-roads on Private Sector activity.
Just as Ford and Toyota must compete for market-share against Government Motors, so private sector theives and extortionists have to compete for market-share against Obamacare, Stimulus Spending, Dodd-Frank Financial Industry Regulation, GM Bankruptcy meddling, Cap and Trade, the BP Shakedown, an Offshore Drilling Moratorium, HHS threats to the Health Insurance Industry, and Government mega-borrowing.
Criminals are learning what the rest of us have known for a long time: Big Government is a jealous god.
