Crime is down and so is freedom. What about crimes that Cambridge police refuse to investigate because the Commissioner thinks they are not crimes? Was the Commissioner surprised at this press release? Does he not know what his PR flacks will release to the public, using standards which the FBI no longer uses? Why do Cambridge police withhold descriptions of street robbery suspects? Are Cambridge police protecting criminals? If there are no police reports of crime there are no crimes. Easy way to reduce crime. Just ignore civilians. Speaking about victimization, what about police abuses of persons with disabilities? Do they count as crimes?
