State Crime Statistics To Be Released

North Carolina law enforcement officials are releasing 2009 crime statistics.

Attorney General Roy Cooper has scheduled a news conference in Greensboro on Wednesday afternoon. North Carolina's crime statistics are compiled by the State Bureau of Investigation based on data from local law enforcement.

Cooper reported last year that crime fell by more than 2 percent in 2008, with violent crime down 1 percent. He credited the decline to technological advances. Cooper recently backed a new law that allows law enforcement to collect DNA samples from some felony arrests.

    Last I checked, neither "thug" nor "drug head" is a race.

    I bet the majority of these crimes are at an all-time high.

    I would like to see the percentage of what races where in that statistics. Is it mainly whites? Or thugs hanging out after hours? Or drug heads? Maybe I should go hang out and see?
