I have just updated the Grand Rapids Crime Map for the first time since, I think, May. I now have 120 incidents located.
This round of updates includes several teenagers being shot, a couple of bank robberies, the attempted rape of an 85 year old woman and the attempted robbery of a 72 year old man. You may have heard of that last on from the national news.
Oh yeah. And an officer killed in the line of duty. For some reason, that one bothered me more than the rest. Maybe because it was the only violent crime (other than the 85-year-old woman) where the victim definitely didn’t have it coming.
If Grand Rapids doesn’t fucking chill out soon, I may have to build a content management system for my pet project just to keep up with the idiocy.
