Crime and how we see it…

PEOPLE in Northern Ireland feel crime is on the increase, and our biggest concerns are speeding traffic, drug dealing and teenagers hanging around on the street (although that isn’t actually a crime yet). A new NIO report on our perceptions of crime notes that many people’s impressions seem strongly influenced by the media.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
