Our colleague, Star editorial columnist Yael Abouhalkah, is always right, we have learned over the years.
Today is no exception. In an unsigned editorial this morning, Yael (or someone who thinks just like him), talks about crime:
- Crime in Kansas City is down - a lot - since 1990.
- But violent crime is up 7 percent in the past three years.
- And homicide, the rarest crime and a poor measure of crime rates overall, has risen sharply this year over last.
Yael wrote the same thing in a column Thursday.
