Crime inside NFL stadiums hidden from police

"A months-long investigation by KIRO-TV in Seattle (CBS/Cox Media Group) found that many local police departments are helping the NFL’s cause, by either failing to create crime reports or underreporting incidents that occur in the stands and nearby parking lots during football games."

"In an effort to independently compile fan-related crime statistics, KIRO 7 contacted police departments covering all 32 NFL teams and requested information from police reports taken on game days," according to KIRO-TV's story.
