    There is NO WAY the murder rate has dropped 75%! I with that were the case, but it's not. The murder rate is only down due to the numbers shell game the LAPD is playing with the city's safety. Basically, the Homicide Units have stopped assigning a 187 DR number to the cases that do not yet have a named suspect or victim. DR numbers are the way these crimes are tracked, and if there is not 187 DR number assigned, then in the stats the murder will not even be factored in. Hence a dramatic drop in the murder rate. So the illusion is that murder is down, but Chief Beck is being disingenuous and straight up lying to the media and to the Los Angeles people. This truly disturbs me, to be working for a department that has these corrupt people at the top.
