Subject: The Violence That Didn't Happen Again

Crime fighting, it turns out, actually works. The Richmond Police Department issued an e-mail last week announcing that crime isn't happening in northern Barton Heights thanks to some keen police and detective work.

After a spate of incidents in the North Side neighborhood in August, detectives observed that “there was a high probability that more violence would occur,” according to the Oct. 1 news release. “The Richmond Police Department immediately launched police resources to combat this dilemma, thus more violence did not materialize in Northern Barton Heights.”

The full statement is available at styleweekly.com. Also stay tuned for next week's announcement: Police Chief Doesn't Get Fired Again.
