About Crime

Writing at The Hill Rafael A. Mangual looks at the recent surge in violent crime and murder, and makes this cogent comment thereupon.

Is it really so crazy to think that a successful national movement to raise the transaction costs of enforcing the law while lowering those of breaking the law might have contributed to an increase in the number of emboldened offenders on the street who then went on to do as offenders do? 

I predict it will be difficult to recruit and retain police officers in the next few years. Urban crime will contribute to the deurbanization of the American middle class and the decay of our cities.
