An interesting piece that theorizes that violent crime has gone down with the advent of cell phones.

This is an interesting aside to put on the Wolf Carpenter Blog, as this does not really have much to do with the study of the law (primarily Fourth Amendment) as it intersects with technology.

The Atlantic features the hypothesis that geographical territory of gangs and their drug selling operations is less important now that everyone has a cell phone, so there are fewer bloody skirmishes nationwide over territory.

Here is a link to the piece. It is worth a read:
