NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione is drawing some flak for his comments about video games, thanks alch. The video game expert said Mr Scipione ignored longer trends that showed no increases in youth violence. A report by the Australian Institute of Criminology released in March showed crime rates had fallen across most major categories.

One resident told me they make living in Songdo feel "very George Jetson."
