Increase in Protection Orders in Lake County

From the NWI Times:

CROWN POINT, Ind. - The nation's economic woes helped fuel a nearly 60 percent increase in domestic violence protection orders in Lake County between 2005 and 2007, a newspaper found.

The Times of Munster analyzed court records and found that more than 4,200 protection orders have been filed in the northwestern Indiana county in the past three and a half years.

Experts told the newspaper that the 57.7 percent increase in protection orders intended to halt domestic violence over that time period was fueled in large part by economic woes.

So "economic woes" is the reason listed for the increase in protection orders. What about, "economic woes due to corrupt spending in Lake County?" ;)
