New crime tracker hits the spot

Check out SpotCrime - a kewl email utility that will send you crime updates near any neighborhood you want to keep an eye on. Right now this thing is totally filling up our Twitter account on a regular basis with LA area crime info.

Seems like an awful lot of "crime" is happening in town, all the time in fact.


1. Can it be possible that LA really has the lowest crime numbers since Wally and the Beaver?

2. It's time for a daily digest via email version!

A technically adept individual can probably use SpotCrime to compare the LAPD's advertised crime rates to the hard numbers from SpotCrime and see just how much data massaging is actually taking place.

When you figure it out,. e-us with your results.
