It’s a bit of a myth.

 

Look beyond broken windows, which was never the success it was made out to be, in fact it created lots more problems that were largely ignored. 

 

There’s a twofold problem, dispersal of crime away from the highly concentrated policed areas, where crimes, especially violent and drug crimes, went up, and long sentences for undeserving crimes creating a prison population that’s there for trivial stuff for far too long, it’s bred resentment and distrust of the police and authorities that has never gone away. 

 

It’s all a bit of an in plain sight lie, like a lot of this rabbles approach to everything. Say something and why bother to see it through, it’s been said, it’s as good as done in their mind.

There is a fair amount of backing for the idea that the legalisation of abortion in the 70’s(?) had input into the drop in crime rates of the 90’s - less unwanted kids, less damage being done. Think it was cited in

one of the early gladwell or frekanomics books.

Was having this discussion today - none of the people you would like to see croak are. Which is part of the problem, it just emboldens the cranks.

Extract from Consortium News :

 

A New Twist in Seth Rich Murder Case

 

With U.S.-Russia tensions as dangerously high as they’ve been since the worst days of the Cold War, there is potential new evidence that Russia was not behind a hack of the Democratic National Committee, although Congress and the U.S. mainstream media accept the unproven allegation of Russia’s guilt as indisputable fact.

 

The possible new evidence comes in the form of a leaked audiotape of veteran investigative journalist Seymour Hersh in which Hersh is heard to say that not Russia, but a DNC insider, was the source of the Democratic emails published by WikiLeaks just before the start of the Democratic National Convention in late July 2016.

 

Hersh said on the tape that the source of the leak was former DNC employee Seth Rich, who was murdered on a darkened street in a rough neighborhood of Northwest Washington D.C. two weeks before the Convention, on July 10, 2016. But Hersh threw cold water on a theory that the murder was an assassination in retaliation for the leak. Instead, Hersh concurs with the D.C. police who say the murder was a botched robbery.

 

Mainstream news outlets have mocked any linkage between Rich’s murder and the disclosure of the DNC emails as a “conspiracy theory,” but Hersh’s comments suggest another possibility – that the murder and the leak were unrelated while Rich may still have been the leaker.

 

In dismissing the possibility that Rich was the leaker, mainstream media outlets often ignore one of the key reasons why some people believe that he was: Shortly after his murder, WikiLeaks, which has denied receiving the emails from the Russian government, posted a Tweet offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the solution of the mystery of who killed Rich.

 

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks founder and publisher, brought up Rich’s murder out of context in an interview with Dutch TV last August. “Whistle-blowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks,” Assange said. “As a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.”

 

Pressed by the interviewer to say whether Rich was the source of the DNC emails, Assange said WikiLeaks never reveals its sources. Yet, it appeared to be an indirect way of naming Rich, while formally maintaining WikiLeak’s policy. An alternative view would be to believe that Assange is cynically using Rich’s death to divert the trail from the real source.

 

But Assange is likely one of the few people who actually knows who the source is, so his professed interest in Rich’s murder presents a clue regarding the source of the leak that any responsible news organization would at least acknowledge although that has not been the case in many recent mainstream articles about the supposed Seth Rich “conspiracy theory.”

Guess fucking what? Another conspiracy theory backed by the usual suspects proved to be bollocks.

Russian hacking of the US election has been a year long conspiracy theory that's been covered more than almost any other story by the US media (general Trump/Russia collusion covered more), and still not one shred of proof has been presented.

 

But...but...the hacking.

The irony...

Remembering that Flynn plead guilty to lying to the FBI about Russian interference in the election.

The founding fathers didn't quite think the American system through did they?

 

"Checks and balances! We'll have none of that despotism here!"

 

Cue creating a role that is leader of the executive branch, head of state and commander in chief all rolled into one, and who can hire and fire whoever he wants and invade whoever he wants, do whatever he wants and then absolve anyone - including himself - of any crimes.

 

Some bourbon being consumed at the signing of the constitution I'd wager.
