  •  I think it depends on the definition of crime (3+ / 0-)

    In the diary you note that you're talking about specific things that you consider crimes and you are referring to those things when you talk about crime, not just things that are illegal. If we equate crime to things that are illegal, which you didn't but I think is a more intuitive definition of crime, then what Buckeye Nut Schell is saying makes more sense.

    If it's easier to be convicted of a crime then the amount of convictions will go up but the amount of crimes, as you define them, will drop.

    I might have misunderstood your diary though.
