Drug War side effect – low crime clearance rates

Some time ago, I wrote about a compelling bit of criminal justice reporting by Scott Christianson related to crime clearance rates — the percentages of violent crimes and property crimes that are solved through arrest or other means.
Scott Henson at Grits for Breakfast applies Christianson’s analysis to current dismal clearance rates and the recent news related to the increase in marijuana arrests, and comes to some powerful conclusions (that are certainly of no surprise to us) — that the popularity of the drug war is harming police effectiveness.
