Very interesting reading . . . .

This article takes the long view of violent crime rates.
Well worth reading: http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/01/30/5-facts-about-crime-in-the-u-s/

I am interested in other reactions to this article.

Yeah.
I knew about that.
But it's still worth reading.

Thanks, Chuck.

We don't have wide spread nation wide crime increases, we have zip code crime stat increases. Take out several big cities (Baltimore, Chicago Memphis, etc)  and the crime rate would be very low.
