"Florida governor Ron DeSantis traveled this week to New York City, Philadelphia, and Chicago to insist those Democratic-led cities were crime-ridden, although as human rights lawyer Qasim Rashid pointed out, Florida has a 19% higher rape rate, 66% higher murder rate, and 280% higher burglary rate than New York." - Heather Richardson in Letters From An American

"Florida has higher rape, murder and burglary rates than New York, but DeSantis, please tell us more about wokeness and law & order" -  Quasim Rashid

Facts not fiction

Big talkers count on the fact that listeners won't check their claims. They'll be too busy or the information is too hard to find. So it's important to make it easy for people to check the fact for where they live. That's what this map created with ArcGIS Online does by collecting data from three public sources and presents it in a single map to make it easy for readers.
- Burglaries: World Atlas
- Rapes: World Population Review
- Homicides: CDC

Clicking on a criteria (such as Burglary / Rape / Homicide) changes the map to that information along with links to more details. States are labeled by their rank for that particular crime. The map also shows the Senator and Governor for that state and how to call them with one click.

Make it easy for people to check and share the law and order situation in their state.

Make it easy to share the facts

Some people will read your message on a laptop, but most will likely use a phone. That's where a QR Code comes in handy. We converted the link to the map "https://arcg.is/8fHOC?header=false&cover=false" into a QR Code with the free QR Code Generator app. The QR Code can be shared on social media or in a video so people can get to the map to check the Law & Order situation where they live without having to find and type in the URL. This is how the map appears on a phone. Try it out!

Letters From An American

"Historians are fond of saying that the past doesn’t repeat itself; it rhymes. To understand the present, we have to understand how we got here. That’s where this newsletter comes in

I’m a professor of American history. This is a chronicle of today’s political landscape, but because you can’t get a grip on today’s politics without an outline of America’s Constitution, and laws, and the economy, and social customs, this newsletter explores what it means, and what it has meant, to be an American.

These were the same questions a famous observer asked in a book of letters he published in 1782, the year before the Treaty of Paris ended the Revolutionary War. Hector St. John de Crevecoeur called his book “Letters from an American Farmer.” Like I say, history doesn’t repeat itself, but it sure rhymes." - Heather Richardson
