It’s all about the low-detection rate

 National Security Minister, Gary Griffith’s statement, that the recent spike in the crime rate was a reaction by criminals to aggressive action by law enforcement, inciting them to fight for “declining” turf, is in my mind another silly notion to cover-up grave inefficiencies in crime-fighting and reduction. 

What then was the reason for myriad spikes and surges in crime over the years? 

It’s mind boggling that this administration, like its predecessors, continues to skirt the real problem which is the dismally low-detection rate and the inherent apprehension of perpetrators.
