Crime dropped in Florida by 2.4 percent in the first half of 2014 compared to the same period last year, according to a report released Friday.
Are you kidding me?
Is our governor, Tallahassee and the Associated Press, watching the same Florida TV station the rest of the Floridians watch every minute of every day?
Just try to get the weather report before going on your way for the day anywhere in Florida, you better start looking early and plan on leaving late.
Hold-up’s, robberies, hit and runs, rapes, child abuse, animal abuse, accidents, deaths, drug pushers, Meth labs, reported every 5 minutes every day on my 4 TV stations and a good story thrown in ones a day if there is time!
“Florida is on a path to a 44-year crime low, which is great news for Florida families, communities and visitors,” Gov. Rick Scott said in a news release.
While crime was down overall, the 2014 Semi-Annual Uniform Crime Report said there was a 0.1 percent increase in violent crimes, such as murder, sex offenses and aggravated assault. Domestic violence went up nearly a half-percent.
“We are deeply concerned about the 19.4 percent increase in domestic violence murders,” Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence president and CEO Tiffany Carr said in the release. “We are committed to work with our law enforcement partners to address this significant increase.”
Law enforcement officers made 444,558 arrests from January through June 2014. Three law enforcement officers died from criminal causes while on duty and one died accidentally.
