Do you know how much we hear lately about how dangerous Arizona is? According to White Nationalist supported Russell Pearce (sb1070 sponsor) or any of the pundits you see on TV supporting SB1070, Arizona is the crime capital of the world and "Illeegal Gangs are running rampant through the streets." THIS IS A LIE. THEY ARE SAYING THIS TO SCARE PEOPLE AND TO SELL THEIR PERSPECTIVE.
As we all know, the White Supremists have exploited the murder of Good Samaritan rancher Robert Krentz. The police do not know who murdered him. They have no suspects. Local Ranchers have disputed an illegal alien of committing the crime since they never travel alone and investigators found that the perpetrator was alone.
Here are the rankings for 2009/2010 Crime in the US. First by city, then by state. You will see that Arizona does not come in until number 9 and the crime that brings them into the top 10 is Auto Theft. Additionally, no city in Arizona is included in the top 10 crime cities. None. In fact, NO CITY IN A BORDER STATE TO MEXICO is included in the Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities. READ THIS AGAIN! NO CITY IN A BORDER STATE TO MEXICO IS INCLUDED IN THE TOP 10 Most DANGEROUS CITIES. Look at the Dangerous Cities. Detroit and Flint are in Michigan, which borders CANADA. All the cities are in economic despair. NONE of these cities are impacted by Mexican Border issues. NONE. NADA!
So now you know. ALL THE HYPE YOU HEAR ABOUT DANGEROUS BORDER STATES is a Bunch of CRAP! While there is DANGEROUS ACTIVITY IN MEXICO re: Drug Cartels, THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT OF THIS IN THE U.S.
