Sniff likes to claim that crime has been decreasing during his administration. However, a quick look at the numbers reveal yet another lie in hopes of convincing voters to to re-elect him.
The following numbers are for the unincorporated areas of Riverside County and were taken DOJ website. They are complete, not cherry-picked like Sniff’s fake numbers from February of 2018.
Overall violent crime has increased during the last four years.
Overall property crime has increased during the last four years.
Unlike the numbers that Sniff’s lackeys in the Riverside Press-Enterprise used in February, these numbers are infallible and complete.
The year 2014 was used as a baseline since it was the last year Sniff campaigned for reelection.
During that 2014 campaign, Sniff ran on a platform of lowering crime, increased cost savings and improved employee morale.
He can’t honestly run on any of these issues now, but he’s trying to. Take a look at the numbers and decide for yourself.
CRIME 2014 2017 CHANGE
All Violent Crime 749 767 2.4% increase
All Property Crime 6718 7529 12% increase
All Crime 7467 8296 11.1% increase
Homicide 17 19 11.7% increase
Rape 51 52 4% increase
Robbery 144 167 16% increase
Aggravated assault 532 520 2% decrease
Burglary 1972 1668 15.4% decrease
Motor Vehicle Theft 1041 1211 18.2% increase
Larceny/Theft 3705 4815 29.9% increase
Stan Sniff lied. He claimed a 10% reduction in crime that was regurgitated by the Riverside Pravda-Enterprise.
As we’ve learned, the truth is negotiable in the Sniff Regime.
