Do most people not report crime because it's inconvenient ?

Someone actually has to mug you or break into your home in order for you to call the police anything that's just a misdemeanor and not a felony is too inconvenient for you

    In some cities the PDs won't even show up for non violent crimes and in some states what used to be considered felonies have been knocked down to misdemeanors or even just infractions. So in some parts it's not even worth calling police. On top of that in many cities they won't even charge those they arrest, the prosecutors will drop the charges or the plea deals expressly forbid actually putting someone in jail or prison. Yeah, lawlessness is the new coin of the realm.
