Property crime rise in Minneapolis

As I posted twice already this week (here and here), the FBI released its crime data for the first half of 2005. The data tracked by the FBI is for Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Of all the categories tracked by the FBI, property crimes had the highest jump in Minneapolis in the first six months of 2005: 92.65%

Ironically, Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar pats herself on the back on both her campaign and official websites for her dedication to prosecuting property crimes.

In 1999, Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar established a special Property Crimes Team to devote resources to ensure the appropriate prosecution of property crimes. (Source: Hennepin County Attorney - Property Crimes)


As County Attorney, Amy established a Property Crimes Team dedicated to prosecuting auto thefts, burglaries, check forgery, credit card fraud and felony-level vandalism. (Source: Amy Klobuchar for United States Senate -- Amy's Record)

I think a 90% rise in property crimes is nothing to brag about Ms. Klobuchar.
