Indianapolis Power and Light says it's weather related. If it turns out it's not, then the city will get what they deserve. They have dragged their feet on every public safety issue and put building a new sports stadium over every other city responsibility. They dismissed the entire public housing police force, limited police patrol rifle qualification to just 20 rifles every 3 months, released at least 5 people due to jail over crowding that have since killed someone and we are currently enduring record flooding because of a sewer system over a 100 years old.

Sex and Age

Male 378310 48.39%
Female 403560 51.61%

12th largest city in America.

I couldn't find the ratio of police to citizens though. Got any idea?

According to this particular section of the FBI's Crime in the US 2003 version, the Indianapolis PD has 1,581 sworn officers and 1,067 civilian employees, for a total of 2,648.

That makes for 495 residents per sworn officer. Seems a bit high to me. Anyways, glad I don't live in Indianapolis.

Edited for grammar.

? How could an Underground Blast be weather related?

Word over at DUh is that it's more US/Israeli underground nuclear tests bent on causing a tsunami to flood out the blue states.

latest reports are they are speculating that melting snow and salt somehow melted down and shorted out some fraying lines.


ETA in the sewer tunnels

rn45: It could be weather related because the all of the water, snow & ice seeps down into the underground vaults where electrical equipment is stored. The problem it is hard to dispute the allegations if you're not working in the power company, the Indy Star can make these allegations even they are not qualified to make them to sell newspapers. The news media sometimes have a very nasty habit of leaving out critical information to draw attention to themselves and sell newspapers.
