I re-launch this lament this morning in response to the routine crime review I just finished. Periodically, I look at published statistics in order to evaluate what's going on in Centerpointe. Answer: Not much. Happily, it's been Dullsville around here for the past five months. Almost no criminal activity. One theft reported from a yard and a few same-address incidents of family violence. Not even worth showing a screengrab of the reports.
However, in digging through the available material, I did find this:
|It kinda sticks out like a sore thumb, doesn't it?? |
This is a screengrab from a Houston Chronicle (paywalled section) article titled "HPD concentrates on hot spots to reduce homicides". Here is a link to the associated map whence that screengrab came.
|Answer: Nothing. There are Houston Police Department internal files that confirm the information presented on the map that Chronicle made, including this downloadable spreadsheet, but I found absolutely no news reporting by any source referencing that address or that street. |
Screengrabbed from Google.
And if the local news media is missing stuff like, well, murders, what else are we not hearing about??
|But not necessarily better-informed.|
