this is a good post but why don't you go even deeper and look into why the police might be doing that?

its also muggings below a certain amount isn't it?

so you have to ask if there is a recent development in society (eg more muggings and thefts) that the police want to conceal the scale of from the public

i suggest such a move is political to conceal the knock on effects that certain policies are now leading to in our society in order to protect those policies from criticism
