  1. Shoot some! Let's Q and A!

  2. Here's a crazy semi politically incorrect brain bender.

    So been looking into some numbers, and apparently back in the mid to late 1980s (topping out in 88) crime in america was at it's all time high. Economists believed that this would continue and only proceed to get worse as it bled into the early 90s. The kicker was it didn't. Actually did the exact opposite. 90's came around, crime dropped dramatically and no one really knew why.

    So recently, an research firm started looking into potential reasons for the drop and found some interesting numbers. It attributed some points to the boost in economy, some to the wider range of innovative police methods, a drop in the crack market and a few other things. The interesting kicker though was they listed the leading reason (as of 51% of their estimated numbers) came actually from Roe Vs Wade.

    Which is where this all gets into some touchy territory. The theory stems from the idea that the legislation launched in 1979, and about the time that the 90's came into place, those kids that would have been reaching mid to late teen hood. A percentage of those being people that didn't have the opportunity to be raised in environments conducive to children. (Ghettos, low income households, situations where parents weren't ready to be parents, etc) Apparently the numbers showed that having the option to not have the kid in the first place, lead dramatically to less children being raised in caustic environments, which led in turn to a drop in crime.
