Was Crocodile stronger at Marineford? Or was he holding back in Alabasta?

 During the Alabasta arc, Crocodile displayed a level of power that was initially considered overwhelming by the Straw Hat Pirates. He possessed the Logia-type Devil Fruit called the Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-Sand Fruit), which granted him the ability to control and transform into sand. He had a reputation as a Shichibukai and controlled the desert kingdom of Alabasta from the shadows. His strength was showcased through his battles with Luffy and others. At Marineford, Crocodile was present as part of the war that took place at Marine Headquarters. While he did participate in the battle, he didn't display the same level of dominance as some other powerful characters present. This has led fans to speculate that he might not have been as strong as initially portrayed in Alabasta. It's important to note that power scaling and character abilities can be subject to interpretation and development by the author. Oda often keeps details deliberately open-ended to keep the story intriguing.

Critics of sanctuary cities say that they foster crime and disorder. Do you agree?

 There is ongoing debate about the impact of sanctuary cities on crime and disorder. Some critics argue that sanctuary cities foster crime and disorder because they provide a safe haven for undocumented immigrants who may have committed crimes, and they may be less likely to cooperate with law enforcement.

However, research on this issue has produced mixed results. Some studies have found that sanctuary cities have lower rates of crime compared to non-sanctuary cities, while other studies have found no statistically significant differences.

It is worth noting that the definition of a sanctuary city can vary, and some cities that are commonly referred to as "sanctuary cities" may have policies in place that are more or less restrictive when it comes to cooperation with federal immigration authorities. This can make it difficult to compare the impacts of sanctuary cities on crime and disorder.

Ultimately, it is important to consider the evidence on this issue carefully and to recognize that there are likely many factors that contribute to crime and disorder in a given community, including economic, social, and environmental factors. It is also important to recognize that many undocumented immigrants are law-abiding individuals who contribute to their communities and should not be conflated with those who engage in criminal activity.
