DeKalb murder rate drops  | ajc.com.

Thanks to the AJC for covering this. Whenever DeKalb or Atlanta sees an uptick in crime, the local news media play it out for days on end. They analyze the numbers, and interview concerned citizens. But when there is a drop, it may get a quick mention and poof away it goes. Now, I must admit,  my gut is that crime in DeKalb is still a serious problem, but the fact that murder dropped 43 percent was a sign of progress. I hope that the new interim chief is not cooking the books. I also hope that they can maintain this success in 2010.
