    The MSM still doesn’t get the web. Check out today’s lead editorial in the Wilmington News-Journal:

    New crime Web site gives residents a way to protect themselves

    New Castle County has given its citizens a useful safety tool. They can now use computer technology to track crimes in their neighborhoods.

    The Web site shows the block-level crimes from the past three months. Residents can spot where a crime occurred and how close they were. The Web site is worth the effort even it just reassures some residents that their neighborhoods are quiet.

    But the site offers more. As the saying goes, knowledge is power. Residents can spot trends and take protective action, whether it’s a string of burglaries or car thefts. The site balances information with genuine privacy concerns.

    County Executive Chris Coons and Public Safety Director Guy Sapp are to be commended for a good idea. Other jurisdictions should follow their example.

    Check out the site. It’s worth taking a look even if you don’t live in New Castle County.

    A URL would have been helpful.
