Public Safety is Suspect in Santa Monica!
Listening to them on the virtual stage, you would feel that we are "lollipops and sunshine safe." However, I see things differently. Random assaults, robberies, burglaries, automobile parts thefts, bicycle thefts, and more are endemic in Santa Monica. Battery happens at regular intervals on our streets, and as you look at the crime statistics in our town, crime has skyrocketed over the past four years. Councilmember Davis accused me of "cherrypicking statistics" when I said that crime had risen.
All in all, the incumbents "pooh-poohed" the black and white statistics of high crime. Safewise published its latest statistical analysis of crime in our seaside city and noted that Santa Monica is the 227th safest city in California. We're just below San Francisco and slightly above Stockton and Oakland. Wouldn't we all prefer to be in the top 50 safest cities? Instead, Santa Monica is at the bottom! Here is the link to the results they published. https://www.safewise.com/blog/safest-cities-california/?fbclid=IwAR29dQ5N42nNJm84Za-K7oT78KMd1tmQl4tZEEK_fVmm3upOAF-Ryxlo8zo
It's hard to fight crime if you pretend there isn't any. Had enough? It's time for a change. BrockTheVote.org
