Massachusetts does not include all crimes in their data base. Massachusetts through its own semi quasi state agency the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center has illegally taken constitutional residential property rights and has made residents sick in Falmouth , Fairhaven and 19 other communities. Massachusetts has a renewable energy "Agenda" of 2000 megawatts of renewable energy by the year 2020. This means there are at least 21 communities where you can not sleep at night near the commercial wind turbines. If you own property near a wind turbine proposal in Massachusetts sell your property now don't wait for the noise that wind turbine victims describe as torture ...

Matt, Massachusetts is not a safe place. Massachusetts has the unenviable distinction of leading all states in the Northeast in the rate of violent crime: "At a rate of 457 violent crimes per 100,000. In New Bedford alone there have been five shootings in three weeks. The crime rate in New Bedford is over 400 violent crimes per year. The town next to it Fairhaven has one violent crime a week and that is the Massachusetts average for towns. This is one small area of Massachusetts. What exactly is called safe ? On top of the crime the state is committing crimes against humanity with the poor placement of commercial megawatt wind turbines too close to residential homes. Here is a quote from, I believe, Jon Boone, “Industrial wind is a bunco scheme of enormous consequence. And people who value intellectual honesty should not quietly be fleeced by such mendacity, even from their government.”
