Take, for example, today's paper.
First, the 'Transit Freak,' James Harris. Cops said he stole a bus, drove around South Beach picking up fares, got arrested, and then stole another bus as soon as he made bail.
Then there's the case of Delvin Lewis, who allegedly tried to shoot his girlfriend, led authorities on a 30-mile chase than ended in a shootout, claiming the life of Oozi the K-9.
Of course, the crime wave is a little understandable, given that some cops are accused of spending their time pumping information to drug dealers.
And other cops don't even know their kid is going on a county-wide crime spree.
Things could be worse, I guess. You could live in Port Charlotte, where they feed their kids pot.
Maybe Time magazine was on to something.
