Thunder Bay averaged 4 to 7 murders per year in the 1980s. It now averages 1 to 3. It spiked a few years ago but so far this year we've only had one, and it happened between inmates at the jail so it's kind of unclear if it counts or not.
Crime goes up: "OMG This is horrible the statistics prove what I have been saying!"
Crime goes down: "The statistics are lying! I think crime is going up so it must be true that crime is going up!"
