VIOLENT CRIME UP 36 PERCENT IN COSTA MESA
Link to OCR article and charts.
The information in this new OCR article was reported by the CM PRESS on April 6 in CM PRESS # 686.
However, at a recent city meeting we heard a resident refer to the increase as being 3.6 percent and not the correct 36 percent.
No, it's not an increase of 3.6 percent or almost 4 percent. The increase is a WHOPPING 36 percent or almost 40 percent!
We'll bet a dozen donuts that if the CMPD were to plot the violent crimes and the residences of the violent criminals on a scatter map that there would be an overwhelming sea of pin heads on the Westside on the map.
And, if we're right, this just indicates that much more needs to be done on the Westside to improve the area.
The best thing that can be done is to remove the habitats of the criminals and make the Westside a desirable place for upwardly mobile young professionals who want to raise their families in our city.
Santa Ana continues to be the most violent large city in OC.
