  1. I recently asked a criminal defense attorney how business was, he said it was terrible nobody was getting arrested. I thought he was joking…

  2. A decrease in “arrests” is not analogues to a decrease in “crime”. Like Keanu Reeves teaches our children in his new video game… “What makes you a criminal, is getting caught”

    … so have at it kids… you’re not committing a crime unless you get caught.
