Crime Rate in Florida Trending Down While California Skyrockets: Report

Dec 6, 2023

News

According to one crime control policy expert, California’s spiking violent-crime rate can be due to the liberal district attorneys in the big cities who are promoting a “culture of lawlessness.” Florida on the other hand has “law and order” policies that yield lower crime.

Heritage Senior Legal Fellow Cully Stimson told Fox News Digital over a phone interview this week, that, “If [California] had law and order DAs, if you had a governor of California – like previous governors, including Reagan – who were pro-law enforcement, pro-law and order, and were hammering [DAs] George Gascon and Chesa Boudin and Pamela Price campaigning for law and order DA candidates, you wouldn’t have the disparity between Florida and California in terms of crime rates.”

This month the FBI released its annual national crime data that analyzed 2022’s crime trends and found that violent incidents decreased by 1.7% since last year, in comparison to 2021. Violent crimes are defined as cases like robberies, rape, armed assault, and homicide.

Murders and non-negligent manslaughter have also dropped to 6.1% while rape cases decreased by 5.4%. The national violent crime numbers for 2022 are just a fraction higher than the data of 2019 which depicts a return to the pre-pandemic numbers.

New Report Shows New Numbers

Stimson is one of the authors behind the Heritage Foundation’s report named, “The Blue City Murder Problem,” which retorted to the Democratic narrative that America has a “red state murder problem.” He says, “Crime, especially violent crime, is demographically and geographically concentrated in the inner cities. That’s just a fact… But to get a real sense of what’s happening in a state, you have to look what’s happening in your big cities in those states.”

The report found that “There were 2,554 homicides in those 30 cities through June 2022. In the 14 cities with Soros-backed rogue prosecutors, there were 1,752 homicides, representing 68 percent of homicides in the 30 top homicide cities in the United States.”

Florida on the other hand, according to Stimson, has promoted law and order policies through Gov. Ron DeSantis and prosecutors. He said, “When you look at the crime rates in big cities in Florida and you see that unlike California, the Florida constitution empowers the governor to remove elected officials who are not fulfilling their fiduciary duties. DeSantis [got] rid of Andrew Warren and Monique Worrell, two DAs in two separate counties because they’re not doing their job.”

Dimple Melwani has been appointed to be the head of the tourism sector of Tenerife since mid-September. She is the chief executive of Tenerife Tourism Corporation. She told TTG that the destination has been investing a lot into making tourism more diversified. It will then offer international visitors a wide range of things to enjoy. While speaking to WTM London, Melwani said that diversifying the tourism strategy would ultimately strengthen the core market. The UK, ever since the pandemic wrapped up, has started to see the island as something more than just a beach destination. 75% of the British population of about 1.6 million that have traveled to Tenerife in the past nine months have opted for cultural and sporting activities such as trekking or cycling. This is what the Tenerife Tourism Corporation data has revealed. Melwani describes the objective of Tenerife to attract more high-end customers to the island. “This change is important because it aligns with our tourism strategy.” To attract more Brits, Tenerife has featured different roadshows at trade fairs across the UK. They have also held face-to-face travel agent training sessions all around the year. It is set to continue in 2024. Tenerife is simultaneously looking to expand its reach into long-haul markets like the Middle East and Southeast Asia. It also seeks to improve connectivity for neighboring countries like Canada, France, and the US. Tenerife welcomed its first direct US flight last June straight from New York. Melwani added, “We have this connectivity with the US because we understand there’s demand for it.”To sum it up, Tenerife will continue to focus on reinforcing the core markets of its base while also expanding into new ones. It will be part of its 2024 tourism regeneration strategy. Dimple Melwani, the chief executive of Tenerife Tourism Corporation, has revealed.

Glasgow City Council Moved To Offer More Bus Stops For Tourists

Conservative councilor Thomas Kerr has asked the chief executive to explore the options for the replacement of “set-down/pick-up areas”. The motion has been presented to elected members. In a bid to encourage more people to visit the city center, they want to change the policies for coach visitors. The local authorities have been working to bring visitors into the city center to check out spots like museums, art galleries, and music videos. It also includes Glasgow’s leisure and hospitality offerings. The motion reads, “Council recognizes that those who visit our city do so using a variety of transport methods including train, plane and coach. Council notes that due to its decision to close parts of George Square to traffic, many coach operators are no longer able to utilize the large parking spaces in front of the City Chambers as a set down and pick up area and, as a consequence of closing this area to traffic, there is no longer a similar area within the City Centre. Council notes its concern that the removal of this area, without a replacement, may be discouraging those using coaches and impact adversely on vital city center footfall.” The motion has also asked the council to take into account that many city center retail, leisure, and hospitality businesses are facing business challenges. It is now incumbent on the city center economy to take all necessary measures to encourage visitors to visit Glasgow. Councilor Kerr spoke ahead of the Thursday meeting, saying, “Glasgow’s SNP-led council must pull out all the stops to attract tourists to come to our city. My motion seeks to change this and ensure those coach operators bringing people to explore all that we have to offer have a suitable place to pick-up passengers and set-down after travelling a long way. Our city center businesses are struggling badly due to the global cost-of-living crisis and the after effects of the pandemic. They need a SNP council that is on their side and agreeing to seek a replacement area for operators would be a positive step in the right direction in supporting our economy.” The SNP administration was approached for comment ahead of the Thursday meeting.
