An important moment for The Marshall Project
It takes investigative journalists to dig out the facts that might otherwise remain hidden from public view.

Text version for screen readers:
The issue of crime is playing an outsized role in the midterm elections, and I’m worried about it.
According to the latest Gallup poll, 56% of Americans think crime has gone up in their area in the last year. It’s the highest increase in people’s perception of crime in 50 years of Gallup polling. That’s obviously been influenced by political attack ads and fear-mongering in this election.
Our national conversation desperately needs more measured and nuanced coverage of criminal justice — coverage that is grounded in facts. That’s the kind of journalism that you’ve hopefully come to expect from The Marshall Project. It takes investigative journalists to dig out the facts that might otherwise remain hidden from public view.
