After the Examiner and others easily discredited his claim of violent crime being down, you would think he would be backing off of this embarrassing claim, but no, Mills is doubling down on it.
The Eureka Police Department is “Charging Forward” according to their latest quarterly report:
How are they going to “Charge Forward”? Simple….they are going to continue to address what the police department considers the number #1 criminal problem in Eureka. Not Murder. Not Gangs. No, the cops are going to continue cracking down on the annoying and scary criminals known as………wait for it………..the homeless!
That’s right; they are going to be taking down tents and locking up shopping carts! Give us a freakin’ break. Mean while the tweakers, bangers and petty criminals continue to rule Eureka streets!
Obviously, the Chief thinks we must be too stupid to realize that the crime in Eureka is “going down”. So he using the tried a true method of; keep repeating the lie often enough and people begin to accept it.
After all, fellow dummies, the report clearly states: “End of the Year Crime Data: Violent Crime is Down”. Mills said it so it must be true. Right?
The department even provides the numbers. Murder, rape, and robbery are way up, property crimes are definitely rising, and no amount of double speak can make that seem any better.
The only one area that is down is the very questionable “Assault with a Deadly Weapon” category. AS pointed out by this blog and others the Department changed the protocol for designating an action as an ADW. So any comparisons are null and void.
Sorry Andy Mills; Eureka is calling Bullshit! on your quarterly report.
