RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I found a great examination of the crime drop in the book "Freakonomics" by Steven Levitt & Stephen Dubner.
They found that the crime drop can be attributed to three main factors:
1. Increased number of police
2. Increased imprisonment
3. Roe v. Wade
In fact, they put a heavy emphasis on #3. As those that would be most likely to commit crime are no longer present.
