MEAT LEADS TO CRIME, STUDIES SAY
Statistics reveal that the number of slaughterhouses is directly correlated to the crime rate in an area. According to a 2009 study by Amy Fitgerald and colleagues, slaughterhouse employment increases arrest rates due to violent crimes, sex offenses, and rape. She theorized that the violent nature of butchering animals was somehow related to the uptick in crime.
Slaughterhouse employees reported becoming insensitive to suffering, making them prone to violence towards humans, according to Emma Richards and her team in a 2013 study published in Society & Animals.
Because we love our bacon, we pay other people to kill animals for us -- and this demand for meat directly contributes to the crime in our own communities.
