Jesus...the whole 'lead paint caused the crime in the 70s/80s/90s yet caused no uptick in crime prior to this time for some strange reason' theory?

I think the correlation is more with lead in fuel, the 1950s and 60s saw a big increase in car use so people growing up in that era could have childhood brain development affected, then from the 80s onwards lead was replaced in fuels

A lot of cars back then didn't have air conditioning either, which meant that people pretty much always had their windows down. More people smoked cigarettes then, too, which also likely would have meant they'd have their windows down inhaling car exhaust while smoking.

St Paul is at 30 now after a man was shot on the North Side of the city. It's been a particularly bad year. The average for the 10 years prior was 15.2/yr (a low of 8 and a high of 22). The year isn't even over :\
