FRAUDULENT CRIME STATS
Federal $$$ are directly connected to CRIME RATE FORECASTING STATISTICS. Padding the numbers is a crime. Once criminals get away with their bad acts over a period of time [like decades], they no longer fear consequences, and are emboldened to take higher risks… until they get caught. It is time for the residents of Clark County to hold government officials accountable.
Vancouver city leaders and Clark County government officials owe its citizens an explanation as to why our statistics do not reconcile with reason or reality.
CLARK COUNTY'S POPULATION IS:
460,000 - APPROXIMATELY 22% OF KING COUNTY
CRITICAL QUESTION FOR CITY & COUNTY LEADERS:
How does Clark County, at less than 1/4 the population of King County,
report violent crime statistics between 2-4 times higher per capita
than those reported by King County?
End of year statistical information has just been released regarding violent and non-violent criminal data upon which each WA State County qualifies for funding. According to these statistics, in 2016...
1 in every 1,190 residents was jailed in King County
1 out every 369 residents was jailed in Clark County
- If the data being reported is accurate, Clark County residents should all be justifiably alarmed...
- If the data being reported is fraudulent (with intent to secure state and federal funds through inaccurate reporting), we should be outraged!

"Something is rotten in the state of Denmark," one of the most recognizable lines from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, suggests suspicion of corruption.
Information below indicates that...
"SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN THE COUNTY OF CLARK."
Is it any wonder Clark County, WA ranks among the top counties per capita for EXONERATION OF WRONGFUL CONVICTIONS (~according to the National Exoneration Registry)?
Other counties in the ranks with Clark County, WA include:
Cook County, IL (Chicago)
Wayne County, MI (Detroit)
New Orleans Parish, LA (New Orleans)
New York County, NY (Manhattan)
The Bronx, NY
Kern County, CA
Suffolk County, MA (Boston)
On January 1, 2017, the Clark County, WA jail housed individuals charged with a total of 24 counts of MURDER I and MURDER II. The number of 2016 deceased associated with these charges is "6". This is a math problem.
Funding is generated by convictions... the more serious, the more money. Meanwhile, innocent people and their families suffer unthinkable loss.**The three italicized cases in red are "juveniles tried as adults" and one adult who were transported from prisons to Clark County for possible re-sentencing based on a change in federal sentencing guidelines. These cases were adjudicated in 2003, 1998 and 1993 respectively. These cases appear to be included in the "25 homicides" reported by Clark County to WA State Courts.
Attempted Murder- The one and only instance of an "Attempted Murder" charge included above was not tallied into the 24 MURDER charges listed on the jail website. It is included to demonstrate that while the majority of the 2016 identified "MURDERS" did not result in a deceased individual or individuals, the claim that all "attempt" murders fit in to the category of MURDER is not legitimate. Why, if that was the case, would there be one individual (Kyle Stephen Holder) who is clearly designated with the charge of ATTEMPTED MURDER?
In December 2016, Clark County Superior Court reported a total of 25 homicides to the WA State Courts for caseload forecasting.
Did homicides occur in Clark County, WA in 2016? Absolutely
[Note: Washington State Courts collect monthly caseload data by County each year post-arrest, but pre-conviction. That does not mean that the individuals charged lose the right to be considered innocent until proven guilty. There is financial motivation for false escalation of charges in connection to many, if not most, of the individuals featured in the Clark County jail roster listing above]
