Deceptive like trying to posit that crime and violence is on the rise respite being at an all time historical low in this century?

Ask yourself, what is the desired take-away message of this article by its writer?

If your point would support that message, then it is not deceptive to miss the point. It is just plain weak.

If your point would oppose that message, then it could be deceptive.
