  1. I remember the frustration expressed by an astronomer on light pollution. He pointed out that increased nighttime lighting went up and so did crime.

  2. Yes, this is indeed true. This has happened in many cities, including Chicago. They dramatically increased city lighting with the hopes of reducing crime, but instead, the crime rate indeed went up! An extensive study was performed as well for the Chicago alley study, and it came to the same conclusion.
