Rape and improper contact with a minor are serious claims.  They are not to be made light of.  Montoya and McHale, to no one's surprise are making light of both for political fodder.  This is vile.

My support for Trey, Nurith, and John is well known.  But the issues of rape and assault should not be used for political gain especially when your claims are false.  There is no evidence Trey, Nurith or John supports McHales tactics.  They are just vile.  When challenged for proof of his claims McHale refused to provide any. 

The official numbers published by the COB proves the following by McHale is false.  "Since 2011, according to the Brownsville Police Department, rapes in the Southmost have skyrocketed to 127% and assaults have risen 60%.

Is the Southmost safe?"

These type false claims hurt real victims because people then tend to not believe them.

The BV will certainly publish a free standing post with his source to support his claims.

Mr. Whightman. I do believe that McHale is taking to much leeway on his articles, and I do not condone the way he writes his filth. But, I also notice that the graphic that you just published above shows that from 2009 to 2018 the number of rapes has increased from 26 to 59.
59/26 = 227 - This means an increment of 126.9%, maybe that's the number used.

Two issues, it is 37 to 59, not 27. This means an increase of 22. 22/37 * 100 = 59.46%. Also my numbers are the entire city, not just southmost. I cannot find a page which breaks down the numbers by district. So the city has an increase of 59.46% which is not good. But it has also dropped the last several years from bigger highs.

The math.

To calculate the percentage increase: First: work out the difference (increase) between the two numbers you are comparing. Then: divide the increase by the original number and multiply the answer by 100. If your answer is a negative number then this is a percentage decrease.

Again I want to see his source. a 1% increase in rape is bad, but the numbers show up and down over the period for the city. I simply cannot find a page which is district 1 only. I will look again. I am more than willing to give McHale a free standing post on the issue if he would just release his source

Also McHale uses 2011, not 2009 such as you used.

I see your point and you are right. What can we expect from a misogynist like McHale?

Here is what concerns me. McHale did something right (for once), the numbers have increased and like you believe that even if its 1%, it is too much and should be addressed to the public.

It might not be just District 1, but still, Longoria should have done something about this number. Violence against women should be one of the problems that a Commissioner has to be monitoring every day, even if they are not all from your district. Still, we have the same amount of cops and medical personnel since God knows when. (you might want to research that number).

I am a mother of two young girls. These numbers are scary however the way we see them.

First, all of our commissioners should request a crime report for their district on a monthly basis. I am district 2. If some other district sees a big jump in crime, I support the police reallocating the limited resources to the locations most in need.

Yes we have a major shortage in police officers. The people will never support a tax increase. So where do we get the money to hire more police officers. Is our city government hopelessly inefficient yes.

This is the result of our commissioners working with a former bad City Manager to make sure the jobs went to their compadre. Cabler is not going to change a thing. But Bernal will kick his ass if he tried undo influence.

In the end it all comes down to money and how do we pay for what we need. everyone opposes taxes, but wants the city to spend more.

I think the safety of our children is work what ever it takes to increase the size of our police department.
