Another report that crime rates dropped. But it can't be because crime rates have actually dropped (that would be bad for the budget) it must be that "department resources [were] diverted to the sniper case and anti-terrorism initiatives."

This is the second time I've posted on this sort of trend but I have seen a number of articles and they all follow the same pattern: the article notes that crime statistics are down and then a law enforcement official gives a reason why it isn't actually true.
