It is not news that the landscape of crime in Billings has changed over the last five years.What is disturbing to many Billings residents is that the violent type of crimes have increased.  Like the Toby Griego serial rape case.  The beating of the two nuns last summer.  The armed robbery of numerous casinos.

The most recent violence was the armed robbery of a 61 year old man on Sunday night, April 13th and the subsequent Billings Police shooting of Richard Ramirez a day later after a traffic stop for not complying with instructions.

Mayor Tom Hanel said at a luncheon meeting he was speaking at earlier this week,

my concern is the rising crime rate and actions needed to fight it head on.

I mentioned this concern to Officer Tom Keightley on the Billings Morning News and he hears that same concern all over town.

Officer Keightley: if people would just comply (Ramirez) when pulled over, everybody will leave safely, somebody may go to jail, but everybody would leave safely.  That is our goal.

Here is the entire interview with Officer Tom Keightley on the Billings Morning News:
