The Daily News reports today
on the LAPD's new online Crime Map service, a searchable database of felonies and misdemeanors
derived from Chief Bratton's COMPSTAT reporting system.
Simply plug in your address, kick back, and wait for the horrors of inner-city crime to pop up as color-coded dots on a map of your nabe. Of course, your zip code has something to do with the types of crimes prevalent in your neighborhood. A search of a one-mile radius
around Skunks HQ turned up handful of property crimes (no surprise there), and two violent robberies - no rapes, no aggravated assaults, no homicides.
Other neighborhoods are not so lucky
