    The New Face of Crime

    At my small college in rural New Hampshire, crime is virtually nonexistent. Keys are left in unlocked cars overnight. Valuable electronics can be found unsupervised in the college library for hours at a time. I can’t remember the last time I locked my off-campus apartment door. The closest thing to a crime spree we get is when inebriated students sometimes “borrow” bikes to get home on a cold night. Even then, they’re usually returned. Of course, rural New Hampshire towns represent just a tiny corner of the world. Across the globe, new social habits sparked by lockdowns, distancing regulations and job losses are fueling wholesale changes to criminal activity. Today’s Daily Dose exposes how the pandemic, rising temperatures and other surprising changes are impacting crime. Explore new solutions being unfurled in attempts to combat illicit evils and meet some of the world’s most notorious crooks. Yes, the times and the crimes, they are a-changin’.

    Cry, the Beloved Country: A Letter From South Africa

    It’s the worst violence South Africa has seen since liberation hero Nelson Mandela walked free from prison and laid the foundations for the “Rainbow Nation” three decades ago. More than 70 people are dead, shopping malls have been burned to the ground, cargo trucks torched, highways blocked, and there have been running street battles and stampedes in which fleeing looters were crushed to death. Banks’ ATMs have been blown up and essential services like health clinics ransacked, while more than 1,000 people have been arrested. Google Maps has introduced a riot tracker so people can avoid unrest. Among the extraordinary scenes, as seen below, a baby was thrown to safety from a building looters had set on fire. The country, already struggling amid a COVID-19 surge, is now teetering on the brink, forcing President Cyril Ramaphosa to send the army into the streets and prompting calls for calm from the United Nations.
