A couple of days ago, we ran a story about how COVID-19 seems to have led to a reduction in crime. Such a claim makes a fair bit of sense. After all, many preferred targets of criminals are no longer viable. You can’t break into homes during the day anymore because everyone is at home. Many stores that would be the target of robberies are now closed.
And then there are the concerns about the virus itself.
The problem is, that reduction doesn’t seem to be universal and it’s not all crimes across the board, either.
