Years ago (over 10 maybe 20 years, IIRC) Atlanta was cited by the FBI as having ‘fudged’ on their murder crime rates. In effect what they did was illegal and intentional.

It involved in re-classifying murders (or deaths) into other lesser status crimes.

This was back when we had a government that was not so totally corrupt and subversive as now.

Mayor Marion Barry did the same for DC. In one year it went from the most dangerous city in America to one of the safest. Murders became suicides or accidents. Apparently the statistics are all self-reported.

Remember it well, only it wasn't just Atlanta, it was all major cities and the crime rate suddenly dropped beginning on January 1, 1993.

It was PROOF electing Clinton was a great and wonderful thing and his policies were responsible for the drop in crime.

The idiots falsifying the reports simply forgot Clinton wasn't president on January 1, 1993.
