The headlines on a recent spike in ram raids paint a picture of a country with youth crime at crisis levels, RNZ reports. But data shows that’s not the case, and some say the media could do better at putting the robberies in context. Former police detective Lance Burdett put it this way: “…It’s not the media’s fault, but… it could be portrayed in a different way. The media might want to think about instead of having those action shots… of having a lot more interviews with the owners of the shop post-event.”
