Apparently, Redding's crime rate is gone way up and doubled in the past 5 years, faster than any other city. Anybody know why?

"Redding is the only metropolitan area in America where the violent crime rate has doubled since 2006. In the five-year span, the aggravated assault rate rose 134.1%, the second-largest increase of all metro areas"

Lots of parolees with instructions to not leave the county, and a dire shortage of jobs?

Ahhh, gotta love the media. One line about how crime is decreasing overall--now see 10 slides about places that are getting worse. Interestingly, the only place I know on the list besides Redding is Bend, which is (still) on a lot of lists for safest city in the country.

I thought Redding was kind of a quiet "red state" kind of place.

The job market is awful.

The liberals and conservatives in the area are anti anything when it comes to business. They literally agree.

The a huge segment of the population is lacking an education beyond high school.

The area is a dumping ground for parolees.

A self-perpetuating problem. Convicts are paroled to the county in which they did the committing offense. Send more to state prison, get more back in the community.

Violent crime rates jumping in the U.S. after falling for 20 years.

Report: Violent crime rises sharply, reversing trend

Redding has gone up, but is considerably below places like Oakland where governor Brown used to be mayor, and Sacramento the state capital.

In fact if the crimes in Redding are compared with cities in the entire U.S., you would find tha Redding is not even very far down on the lists.

I'm curious as to how Redding can be a "dumping ground for parolees" when paroles are routinely paroled back to the county where their offense took place. and where they were convicted. Has the State changed its procedures?

Come to to think of it, I believe they changed it to county of last residence. So if a community has a lot of them they likely bred them.
