Re "Area sees rise in crime" (Page A1, Feb. 6): Gee, what a surprise. When you let criminals out of jail, as our present governor has been doing, the crime rates rise.
Is it me, or are The Bee's editorial writers and liberal Democrats searching for another answer besides the one with most common sense staring you in the face? When you let criminals out of jail into a Barack Obama economy where they have no jobs, they will continue to do what they do best -- steal, rob, pillage and create misery. No matter how much you people try to rationalize with it's just non-violent inmates getting let out of prison, they are still criminals. That's why the crime rate will continue to go up.
