It All Started in Wisconsin: The Kindergarten Crime Wave

Bob Kingsbury, New Hampshire Republican, Says Kindergarten Leads To Higher Crime. (The Huffington Post, 6/27/2012)

Excerpt:  Rep. Bob Kingsbury (R-Laconia) told the Belknap County Convention that research he's been conducting for the last 16 years has led him to believe that kindergarten programs leads to higher crime rates, the Laconia Daily Sun reported. Kingsbury, one of the more conservative legislators in the Tea Party-controlled House, said that his analysis was of local crime rates in communities that offered kindergarten versus those that do not offer the educational program

Examples of legislation Kingsbury has proposed:
  • Raising the minimum age to be a judge in New Hampshire from 18 to 60 
  • Tying future state legislation to the Magna Carta 
  • Partially ending the direct election of U.S. Senators

A reader's advisory suggestion for Bob.  It's not New Hampshire, it's not present-day, 
but it's boxing -- high school and college level.
