FBI Data: Marijuana Arrests STILL Number 1 Nationally

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, May 4, 2021

The Federal Bureau of Investigation annually publishes a UCR, or Uniform Crime Report. It’s a statistical overview of crime and arrests in the United States compiled from reports from the Local, State and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies. Because of the vast volume of data, it takes quite a bit of time and concerted effort to organize the data into comprehensible form. Typically, such reports are at least a year behind. For example, the most recent year for which complete UCR data is available is 2019.

“The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program counts one arrest for each separate instance in which a person is arrested, cited, or summoned for an offense. The UCR Program collects arrest data on 28 offenses, as described in Offense Definitions.

Nationwide, law enforcement made an estimated 10,085,207 arrests in 2019. Of these arrests, 495,871 were for violent crimes, and 1,074,367 were for property crimes.

The highest number of arrests were for drug abuse violations (estimated at 1,558,862 arrests), driving under the influence (estimated at 1,024,508), and larceny-theft (estimated at 813,073).

Stereophonic Headphone Types

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, October 23, 2009

In today’s Huntsville Times, under the “Law & Order” section, subhead “The police beat,” on page A4, a brief article enumerated the names and ages of 17 women arrested “Wednesday in a citywide prostitution sting.” Police Public Information Officer Sergeant Mark Roberts shared the area of concentration and locations of the arrests. The article stated that “all the women have been booked in the Madison County Jail,” and “charged with soliciting prostitution.”

From a social perspective, I can’t help but imagine the women probably have histories of physical, sexual and drug abuse. I further conjecture – based upon historical sociological data – that they were probably seeking to support a drug habit.

What interested me, however, were their names.

The women ranged in age from 20-49, and no pictures were published, and no data concerning their ethnicity was made, though the authorities doubtless photographed and documented it.

Here, for your perusal are the names and ages of the women arrested.

Readers are encouraged to draw their own conclusions.

Mandie Darlene Anderson – 24
Dawn Pruitt Collins – 49
Tanisha Kachelle Johnson – 29
Stephanie Ineke Salters Rahim – 24
Tanisha Wrenet Page – 34
Rachel York Morehouse – 23
Amber Sue Pearson – 24
Vickie Marie Brown – 35
Crystal Renee Kemper – 33
Kymberly Ellis Clinard – 38
Teresa Gail Stevenson – 35
Mary Shanna Williams – 30
Nichole Ross Barnett – 26
Chasity Michelle Skipworth – 35
Latasha Lashun James – 33
Bethani Amber Hosch – 20
Sue Ann Kinney Branch – 45

Now that you’ve hopefully drawn your own conclusions, see if you were right!
