Poverty Rate Paradox
According to an interesting article posted yesterday in The Christian Science Monitor, although the poverty rate has increased, the crime rate has indeed fallen. This challenges the long-held assumption that there is a tie between high poverty rates and high crime rates. What do you think, fellow Melrose residents? Is there a strong tie? We do have, after all, the dubious distinction of living in the poorest congressional district in the country.
