A couple of months ago several of us contributed to a conversation on the increase of urban crime. It was in another thread and , if memory serves, the mods were getting troubled so we ended the conversation. I came across two articles this week (and included two others) on the subject and I am posting them in the hopes of discussing the topic in a civil manner.
I assert the rising crime rate in US and many international cities is due to progressive policies - decriminalizing low-level crime and banning preventative policing tactics. I believe urban crime is well on the way to the high-water mark of 1990 (in most statistical areas).

ANNOUNCEMENT: Google Earth has updated its 3D renderings of Nashville satellite imagery.
I'm not sure if I'm the only one who spends too much time on Google Earth, but I wanted to make everyone aware. Last update was maybe 2 years ago?
SoBro, the Gulch, Music Row, Vandy/Midtown just few with a noticeable impact from the update.
Mods: Is this an appropriate place for this? I'm sorry if not.
