Typical ivory tower academics who wish to paper over all the damage done by Buraq Hussein. The US military is a shadow of it's former self, as is this country. The next war is unlike any of the previous, and is ongoing as we speak.

Hillary it utterly unpleasant to see, listen to, or be around. Even her supporters deep down know how evil and corrupt she is.

"I'm not sure what to make of individual crime stories.  I wonder whether these non-Colorado people were attracted in because of legalization.  Some of it is counter-intuitive like gun laws, that criminals and thugs care what is legal."

Colorado has seen a massive influx of bipedal garbage since the "green rush" started. All sorts of homeless with criminal histories and warrants. It has changed the character of the small town I was born and raised in, to be sure.

One of my patients, a retired police officer who had worked in Baltimore. He said the whole scenario was predictable.

 GM,
I think you are alluding to my thoughts as well.  I would have thought the author(s) would be someone(s) from the military or intelligence departments.
Not that these guys opinions are not legitimate since they seem to have studied and authored in these areas.  But are they really privy to the most up to date information.

I noticed the expected dig at Trump in the article.  While they jumped on Obama's band wagon about not "doing stupid stuff"  (always easy to say in retrospect when the results are less then desired) they did allude to him taking his "eye off the ball".  OTOH while they like Obama avoidance of getting too involved in peripheral conflicts they do not give Trump credit for saying the same thing.  Or give him credit for wanting to keep our military strong while Obama makes us weaker.

They criticize Trump for risking pissing off our allies but nothing said about Obama pissing off Israel who I thought was our ally.

They sound university like with comments that most problems are "manageable".

I don't know.  I could be wrong but I do not trust university professors on foreign policy.  If 90% are liberal I just cannot help but think in the back of my mind their conclusions are influenced by their politics .  It would be fair to question my conclusions knowing I am on the right.

"How come we don't have 2015 data, and part of 2016?"

Because it's UGLY. I was recently in a gang class at Rocky Mountain HIDTA (High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area) and the instructor was a former Maryland State Trooper that worked many specialized units and task forces in his career. He did a lot of work in Baltimore, including using Title III wiretaps against drug trafficking gangs, right when "The Wire" first came out.

On a break, I asked him what BPD and other agencies were doing after the riots. He responded pretty much only responding to drug seizures at Baltimore International Airport ot at the Ports. No more proactive investigations, just sheltering in place and waiting for retirement. So, the entire drug market in metro Baltimore is virtually legal. Funny enough, the crime rate has only skyrocketed.

Not just Baltimore, all across the US, this is happening.

Ok here we go.  State Department gives their girl the out, "they all did it";  I don't believe anyone but her signed a legal document about electronic security however.  So no biggie.  This will wind up along the same rationalization we will see from Justice:

Good article but it is important to better know the authors both of whom are university professors (I think).  I believe these are the fellows:

RELEVANT OCCUPATIONAL EXPERIENCE
Research Analyst, 1991- 1994, Department of National Security Affairs, Naval Postgraduate
School, Monterey, CA (part-time 1991 and 1992, full-time 1993 and 1994).

Doesn't seem to have even that much.

Must be a fluke!

In the above case, the suspect made a serious attempt to disarm the female officer that first encountered him. It was a brutal fight for her to retain her sidearm.

I'm not sure what to make of individual crime stories.  I wonder whether these non-Colorado people were attracted in because of legalization.  Some of it is counter-intuitive like gun laws, that criminals and thugs care what is legal. 

Statistics seem to say crime is up:

http://wspa.com/2015/10/30/how-is-colorado-doing-since-marijuana-legalization/
http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2015/12/colorados_crime_rate_was_declining_until_they_legalized_marijuana.html

One point made is that since it is not legal federally, it is largely a cash business, inviting crime.  A point I would add is that fracking added crime to North Dakota.  Sudden change and an economic boom brings new people and those who can relocate that quickly and easily are not always the ones most grounded in good behavior. 

From the American Thinker link:


Retail stores opened in 2014.  This does not look good, but 1 or 2 data points is fairly short trend.

http://www.denverpost.com/2016/02/17/marijuana-legalization-unlikely-to-blame-for-denver-crime-increase/
Marijuana-related crimes in Denver make up less than 1 percent of all offenses counted in the Uniform Crime Report and less than a half-percent of all NIBRS offenses.

[I wonder if there is a definitional issue in that?]

US crime rate trend:


How come we don't have 2015 data, and part of 2016?
