CHICAGO A police watchdog group is calling Tuesday on the FBI to review whether the Chicago Police Department is hiding crimes to lower the murder rate and make the city seem safer.

We have anecdotal but first hand evidence that they are massaging the data so that reports indicate a rosier scenario in more crimes than just murders. It’s been an ongoing bone of contention that property damage crimes are not being reported, that shootings that don’t result in murder get reported as “assaults,” and similar sorts of schemes are taking place. Frankly, I don’t think that the CPD is driving the data distortion but that commands to do such are coming straight out of city hall, happily aided and abetted by our Rocky Horror Show cast of a city council. God love an oligarchy.
