Quoted from al.com…. from whoever Roper is?
“I can’t speak for other cities, but Birmingham is experiencing historic reductions in crime, and the hundreds of thousands of people that visit the city each year gives credence to the fact that Birmingham is a city on the rise,” Roper said. “We understand there is more work to be done, but the progress has been tremendous.”
Sometime a reduction does not matter? You can still rank as the most “dangerous city”? But I feel safer already! 🙂 Maybe if they drove around Wylam once in a while? (BTW…. It is in Birmingham. 🙂
