[QUOTE=Black Death;4497145]Today's policing would have a lot to do with less crime, in fact be the major reason for it - it is pervasive, massive and utilises incredible technology. If anything should be congratulated on less crime it is today's policing.....as for a complete lack of regard for any laws, constitutions or anything else meant to guard individual rights and privacy, policing is the main culprit for that as well.[/QUOTE]
I suspect the major reason is the ageing demographics of the country. Less hormones less crime.
