Liberals Try Scare Tactics Touting Impending Crime Wave

Here's a great post on Grits that was pointed out by Doc Berman over at Sentencing Law and Policy:

Here's how it begins:

Washington Post pundit David Broder says crime may be lurking as an issue more powerful with the electorate than foreign affairs, discussing a national survey by a liberal think tank called Third Way. I'd not heard of the organization but I found a copy of the poll (pdf) online. They also have published an accompanying report with the scare-mongering title, "The Impending Crime Wave." Writes Broder:

when the polling firm Cooper & Secrest Associates asked 1,139 Americans in December which threat they took most seriously, 69 percent chose violent crime and only 19 percent named terrorist attack.

The survey was part of a striking report released yesterday by Third Way, a liberal think tank, and several governors, warning that the crime issue, which has slipped off the political agenda since its heyday in the 1970s and 1980s, is about to return.

"Four new and dangerous sociological trends are converging to disturb the peace and are threatening a crisis of crime, if not addressed," the report says.

In Colorado, it does not matter if you are liberal or a Republican, or a Democrat, such slogans as "public safety" cause the legislature and the administration to get under the table payoffs, have a huge built in voter base of 1/3 of the population involved in the persecution of criminals, from the arrest to the judiciary system to the enprisonment for the rest of their lives to parole and "rehabilitation" and all the support industries of the prison/industrial complex to the selling of prison labor to farmers.
This sort of fear mongering has to stop.
