Wonder how many people will find a way to complain about this now.

Why no data for comparable periods for St. Paul? Something like that might let readers decide if it was something Rybak could reasonably claim credit for, or if it was more of a regional phenomenon. I am assuming that St. Paul keeps crime statistics...Rybak gets a lot of ink in which to claim credit.

I wish that had been like that in the late 70's when I bought a house in North Mpls to help renovate the area (didn't work). Young people were committing most of the crime at that time. Mpls Police - keep up the GOOD work!

Now that the citizenry all carry loaded handguns crime is decreasing. So, I guess all credit goes to the Republican party because it was their diligent attention to the important issues like handgun carry and abortion while they briefly held power that has led to this bit of positive news.

he can play with numbers to come out in his favor better than Angry Al can. I was in DT Mpls yesterday, last weekend before Christmas, where was the hustle and bustle? Nowhere, except for homeless and gangbangers.
