Liberal:

A good person to rob at gunpoint would be Oldman Linwood. He obviously has a lot of $$$ because he's so worried about exactly when President Bush started our recessions. Hey oldman tell Boehner to start taxing the rich and cooperating with what the public voted for, or he will be viewed as the cause of the next one.

crowneagle:

No one got hurt other than terrorizing a young college student. They have to catch this guy soon. If he gets away with it for any length of time, I'm afraid we will be seeing more of this sort of thing.

union man:

The Hallmark store in Uxbridge was also robbed at gunpoint the other day.

moelabeau:

That is terrible, hope no one got hurt. This world has gone crazy. Robberies, break-ins, stabbings etc. Brenda runs a great little store there and has for many years.

John B:

Oldman Linwood is misinformed about crime and the economy.

According to the FBI crime has been decreasing in the United States. This has been an ongoing trend. Violent crime is going down. View it on the link below.

http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-2011/violent-crime/violent-crime

In 2011, an estimated 1,203,564 violent crimes occurred nationwide, a decrease of 3.8 percent from the 2010 estimate.
When considering 5- and 10-year trends, the 2011 estimated violent crime total was 15.4 percent below the 2007 level and 15.5 percent below the 2002 level.
There were an estimated 386.3 violent crimes per 100,000 inhabitants in 2011.
Aggravated assaults accounted for the highest number of violent crimes reported to law enforcement at 62.4 percent. Robbery comprised 29.4 percent of violent crimes, forcible rape accounted for 6.9 percent, and murder accounted for 1.2 percent of estimated violent crimes in 2011.
Information collected regarding type of weapon showed that firearms were used in 67.7 percent of the nation’s murders, 41.3 percent of robberies, and 21.2 percent of aggravated assaults. (Weapons data are not collected for forcible rape.) (See Expanded Homicide Data Table 7, Robbery Table 3, and the Aggravated Assault Table.)

In regards to the economy
Since January 20, 2009, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 70 percent, the Standard & Poor’s 500 index is up 81 percent, and the NASDAQ composite index (heavy with tech stocks) is up 119 percent. Although none has quite regained the historic highs reached in 2007, the gains have brightened the retirement prospects of millions of Americans who invest through 401(k) and similar tax-deferred plans, compared with the dark days of early 2009.

Oldman Linwood:

Conflicting Arguments or debates can be made on both the Economy and Crime Rates.

Economy:
Did the recession begin in July? If so, expect an ugly 2013!

2 DECEMBER 2012
by Fabius Maximus
Summary: Many US economic indicators have fallen off their peaks, some entering typical pre-recessionary levels. That’s bad, since the fiscal deficit and unemployment are already at recessionary levels. That’s a ugly place to start the downturn. And the recession it might have already begun.

So, with about a month to go before year-end, what do the hard data tell us about where we are in the business cycle? Reviewing the indicators used to officially decide U.S. recession dates, 'it looks like the recession began around July 2012'. This is because, in retrospect, three of those four coincident indicators – the broad measures of production, income, employment and sales – saw their high points in July (vertical red line in chart), with only employment still rising.

Other information on Crime rate's, do a simple Google Search. Plus check the Police Dispatch Journals on the Daily Voice from surrounding Towns, make your own intelligent informed decision.

John B:

If your economic sources are from a blog whose author's true is hided behind that of a Roman Empire you are lost.

If you discount the FBI statics, it confirms that you are very lost.

Please seek medical attention.

union man:

A person has a gun put to them and robbed And all you two Birds can do is argue about who's right.

Oldman Linwood:

Many other relevant Articles on the Internet about the USA Economic Recession starting in July of 2012, just do a Google Search.

The Recession Really Started in June:
Wednesday, 11 Jul 2012 07:36 AM

Experts at the National Bureau of Economic Research will meet one day to decide the official start date of the next recession.
This meeting will probably take place about two years from now because they always meet well after the recession has started. The NBER is the official historian on economic growth and they move slowly to avoid mistakes.

When they finally meet, the data they rely on will point to the fact that a slowdown started in June. From here, we can expect that the economy 'will get worse' before it gets better.

'12 Reasons US Recession Has Arrived (Or Will Shortly)'

I am amused by the Shadow Weekly Leading Index Project which claims the probability of recession is 31%. I think it is much higher.

When the NBER, the official arbiter of recessions finally backdates the recession, May or June of 2012 appear to be likely months. Let's take a look at why.

US Manufacturing PMI

Market reports PMI signals weakest manufacturing expansion in 11 months
Key points:
PMI lowest since July 2011, suggesting slower rate of manufacturing expansion
Rate of output growth broadly unchanged
New orders rise at weakest pace in four months
Input costs fall for first time in three years

Plus the Middle Class who's wages have been stagnant for 10 years, down sized, benefits cut, the unaccounted Unemployed, people working three Part-Time Jobs, Seniors On Fixed Incomes, long term Unemployed, they know the real deal without doing any Google Search's they live it everyday.

I and maybe others believe in the local Police Dispatch Logs published in the Daily Voice, to include Crimes reported on the local News Channels to be the judge of local Crime percentages. Some are from the old days when people made their own informed decision's.

I guess we just disagree, Oh-Well.

union man:

Oldman Linwood:

Read my first post reference your concern and my concern for the clerk, after that I responded to the other poster.

"Again our thoughts are with the Store Clerk", and hopefully the Criminal aspect is resolved by the Police shortly.

Oldman Linwood:

I hope no one was injured in this Robbery, our thoughts are with the Store Clerks.

For those that remember the very bad economy during the President Ford and Carter years, the crime rate was also high during those times. People should review the Crime Prevention tips on our Police Departments website in these economic uncertain times.
