'Crime Went Down After We Stopped Reporting It!' Rolling Stone Tries Fact-Checking Nancy Mace on Crime

Meme screenshot

It's an election year so the media is desperately trying to find anything positive about the Biden admin to blast on repeat. For example, Democrats decided they were actually the champions of a strong border all along and naturally Biden has the best economy in the history of humanity.

But it just hasn't stuck.

Gallup reports he's got a 40% approval rating as of mid-March.

So, now they're trying out, 'under Biden crime is at an all-time LOW!'

Ok.

Hmmm. A crime reporting website called The Marshall Project cited by NPR said, 'In 2021, the FBI retired its nearly century-old national crime data collection program, the Summary Reporting System used by the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program. The agency switched to a new system, the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), which gathers more specific information on each incident.'

They pointed out that 40% of law enforcement agencies didn't report any data in 2021. The FBI was used to receiving about 90% in comparison.

So, there's that.

Then all of a sudden, that just went away. Weird.

Well, there's that too.

Of course, the left can't quite decide what their narrative is either.

California. for example, decided to reduce dozens of felonies to misdemeanors, which impacted reporting of crimes to authorities. AP: 'What Prop 47 did was take very low level crimes like petty theft, some petty drug offenses, petty larceny, and classify them as misdemeanors rather than felonies,'

It's truly amazing what the media thinks it can get you to believe in spite of what you see every day.

Guess we'll just have to see how Biden's numbers change to find out if crime goes up or down before November!
