I am not certain what you are inferring; however, if you believe Utah liquor laws are somehow connected to increased crime, you couldn’t be more wrong. I can’t find the stats at this moment, but I do know that the overwhelming majority of crimes are committed by persons under the influence of alcohol, drugs, and or both. I will also give you a concrete example of how reduced accessibility to alcohol reduces the crime rate.

There are several major entertainment parks in California, and I have visited them all. Without a doubt, Disneyland has the lowest incidence of vandalism and disorderly conduct of all the California parks. The reason is not obvious until one looks around and notices that Disneyland does not have open access to alcohol or tobacco. Yes, you can purchase wine in at least one Disneyland restaurant, but there are no beer stands or stands that sell cigarettes as there are in the other parks.

I have been to Disneyland on numerous occasions, and I have NEVER seen security or the Anaheim Police ever need to remove an unruly visitor. I have also visited Six Flags and other parks, and each time I have seen at least one removal and or arrest.

They also don't prosecute the criminals tough enough, so they keep coming back because they know they won't go to jail because of overcrowding and incompetent prosecutors and police officers who take five million years to charge and arrest somebody for a crime!
