The Uniform Klein Report

On December 12, 2008, Klein predicted:
Crime Stats : We are told get ready for a shocker this February when the numbers are leaked. If there was no more crime in Jefferson County from December 1 to 31 - and not one cop wrote one report - we would still be up 8%? Wow!
As I pointed out in this article, Klein's fictitious statement was dead wrong. The crime stats for the year decreased by 10 percent across the county, not an 8 percent increase as Klein claimed.

Yesterday, the FBI release its Uniform Crime Report. From KFDM Channel 6:
The number of violent crimes has decreased across the nation, according to an F.B.I. report released Monday, and the decline extends to Southeast Texas.

The number of violent crimes reported in Beaumont decreased by about five percent from 2007 to 2008.

In Port Arthur, violent crime decreased 15 percent in 2008, and in Orange, it increased about two percent.

Violent crime includes murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery and aggravated assault.

On February 3, 2009 Klein described a "Crime Wave" in Port Arthur that only existed in his imagination:
What is up? The crime stats say everything is okay? Right? Well not in Port Arthur. Arsons, shootings, and robberies? Say it is not so.
It wasn't so. The numbers speak for themselves.
