Crime Where I Live - Lake County, Indiana

Crime is rising at an incredible rate where I live (Lake County, Indiana). As a former deputy prosecutor for the state of Indiana, I recall in the nineties watching the defendants come through the courts at a rising rate. I recall when a defendant appeared in court who was from Chicago and was recruiting gang members from Crown Point High School. It was a wake-up call. Following are some arbitrary clippings of headlines (30 of them) from a local newspaper (The Times of NW Indiana) taken from 8 (nonconsecutive) days. There was no effort to find high crime days. These days are typical.
