Violent Crime at 16 Year High

The Washington Examiner:

The personal crime rate throughout America has hit a 16-year high, with nearly 30 percent of all households report being “victimized,” according to a new survey

“Americans’ direct experience with crime is at a 16-year high, consistent with a gradual increase — from 22 percent in 2001 to 29 percent today — in the percentage saying that they or a household member was the victim of a robbery, vandalism or violent crime in the past year,” Gallup reports.

What’s more, some 16 percent that they personally have been the victim of crime, most often theft.
