Olongapo In Top 5 Crime Volume Cities

Recommended Posts

My wife told me about this earlier and I had to see it to believe it!  I never would have thought Olongapo would be in the top 5 crime volume cities (outside Manila) as I have never seen any street crime and only heard about a few burglaries.  A few years ago a wedding coordinator told us that armed men burst into his store and robbed him of everything valuable.

They give no detail as to how this was all determined.

I will not google it but I will assume that my hometown's population is among the top 5.  I was wondering Don, what would be the crime rate inside the former naval base?

Just like anything we read in the news, we have to consider the source of the 'facts' and then personally decide how much credibility we want to attach to the facts.  The fun of living in an internet/social media world!

Crime stats are reported from the lowest government levels, often by the people who have the strongest incentive to underreport crime to keep their jobs or to accommodate the bragging rights of local politicians. 

I'm not saying the numbers are wrong, but sometimes you have to wonder if some localities are more accurate then others . . .

I was also recently made aware that you need to keep an eye out for "alternative facts" :hystery:

It looked like a newspaper article even fooled me for a moment. I can understand how he was fooled.

Honestly I am sick of what is going on and the amount of deleted members or banned idiots because of this is just getting to me. All members read the rules please. .

Sorry, you guys are going to have to explain to me why that is a blog.  It is a local news company that I follow on FB.  They have an office near my daughter's school and I'm sure it is not some single blogger.

What I saw was a community blog hosting news and other information. I’m not being a link Nazi but until I hear different blogs are not to be used. I’m willing to stop removing blog links if it’s pertinent to a story like in this case. I don’t have the judgment to make that call. I mean no disrespect.
