Crime falls in the US. Are you safer today? – The Christian Science Monitor – CSMonitor.com.

Some really good graphics on the significant drop in crime over the last two decades in the United States.  Nothing particularly surprising if you have seen any of these stats from recent years but always good to see and remember when people mistakenly think crime is getting worse in America.

The regional and city data is fairly interesting to see.  Many might be surprised to see New York City fairing so well in the rankings.

  1. Crime falls in the US? what a steaming hot crock. just another massaged stat by the current administration. cities all over the country have record numbers of murders this year alone, not to mention a plethora of ethnic crimes. they’re just not being reported by the mainstream media. you know, like the faux unemployment rate just in time for the most recent presidential reelection. how convenient.
