Also about crime rate+125The crime rate would drastically drop if officers wore capes and masks, right up until the criminals start wearing capes too so they can try to be super villains, amirite?
Also about crime and law+32Reparations for slavery would be illegal because it was not a crime while protected under law. amirite?
Also about crime rate+693Considering the amount of superheroes in Manhattan, you would expect the crime rate to be a little lower, amirite?
Also about crime rate+66It wouldn't surprise you if the world's crime rate spiked tomorrow, amirite?
Also about crime+45It is a very old trope that poverty creates crime, but it's a lie, crime creates poverty. Not only does crime directly destroy wealth as thieves steal expensive goods and sell them for pennies on the dollar, it drives away people who have money, and prevents people from investing money in those areas because your investment is not safe there and neither are you. Without crime, poorer areas are attractive to investors because the cost of property and labor are lower than other areas, so wealth flows in and poverty dissipates. But crime prevents that, it creates and perpetuates poverty. amirite?
