violent crime may be up in virginia beach this year

crime, especially violent crime, has been declining across the nation since 1993. but this year may be different. virginia beach has fallen victim to a wave of robberies. this article describes the latest - two teen boys robbed and "pistol-whipped." yes, the news said pistol-whipped.

i am pretty sure some other news channel reported that this makes 36 robberies in the city this year. 36 in 20 days. a police spokesperson said, ""Unfortunately, robberies do occur in a city our size, and we'll investigate it and do what we can to get the suspects identified and locked up."

someone needs to do something.
