Are the police too afraid of "profiling" that they can't confront possible suspects in the area?
I trust that the police do what they can with the info that they have. Random attacks in the dark with no physical evidence have to be tough to deal with. But try discussing the facts of the bike path crimes and the campus muggings from the last few years at any random gathering of people and you get met with awkward silences or practiced lines about poverty being the real problem.
