I agree. This is just ridiculous. I actually heard a pretty interesting theory the other day. The drop in crime in the United States has been contributed to the removal of lead paint from houses. I know that a lot of older Philadelphia homes tend to still have lead paint. I wonder if this is what is contributing to the violent crime? Any thoughts?

I read the same thing.. Ya never know.... Lead could have some issues with this sort of thing. I think drugs are more the reason though

Here is the problem. You can go downtown with your friends and beat a man to death and plea 2 to 5. Everyone who is doing dirt knows it.

Right... because Tin Tin has all the answers.

Perhaps you should try reading it before you knock it?

You don't know what you're talking about. It's a theory. Gain some knowledge before you go attacking others or otherwise you just sound ignorant. Also, stop attacking people or you'll get this thread shut down again.

Well, when lead paint was used all the time the crime rate was way lower than it is now. I'm talking back in the 40s and 50s.
