Actual Headline

Care of the WaPo, where there's evidently a different definition of "violent crime" than there is in Shakesville. Btw, to fully appreciate how completely fucked this headline actually is, you should know that rape is up 20%—and the police attribute (at least part of) the increase not to increased reporting, unfortunately, but to a serial rapist who has since killed himself.

[Thanks to Shaker Lizzie (greeneyed fem) for passing that along.]
