Now that the FBI released 2015 violent crime data, the third parties made quick work of it.
And guess who comes in first.
Do you know what this means? Starting tomorrow morning, and going through the rest of the week, and probably resuming for the first day or two next week, expect to hear these two excuses over and over and over and over and over again from City Hall, Civic Progress, the CVC, the P-D editorial page:
“The FBI’s own report has a caution against ranking, because numerous variables, extenuating circumstances, simplistic or incomplete analyses, misleading perceptions, adversely affecting communities, unique conditions, yadda yadda blah blah.”
This should be our drinking game for the next seven days. When you hear either one of these or a close enough variant, chug-a-lug. I hope you all have a high tolerance for alcohol.
