Here's a convenient tool for thinking about Maryland's criminality relative to the nation, understanding that Baltiimore City is disproportionately prominent in the state's stats.
Relative to my conversation with Cham about drug-related incarceration, be advised:Only about 20% of the MD jail population is in on drug offenses.About twice that are comitted on drug offenses. The difference: the speed of the revolving door. They get out quick.60% of MD commitments are from Baltimore City.About 33% of commitments are due due violation of parole from a previous conviction.That is to say, people who probably should never have been released.source: dpscs annual report
What is the definition of a "property crime"?
Property crime is generally theft, burglary, theft from auto, or auto theft.Robbery is commonly understood to include a violent component, hence is is accordingly categorized.Vandalism might be a Part II property offense, but Part II stuff never sees a courtroom, unless part of a higher offense.
