    16,503 Murders

    http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...me_6&printer=1


    There were just under 1.4 million crimes of murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery and aggravated assault in 2003, 3 percent fewer than 2002 and a decline of more than 25 percent from 1994.

    The 2003 figure translates to a rate of 475 violent crimes for every 100,000 Americans, a 3.9 percent decrease from the previous year, the FBI report said. Aggravated assaults, which make up two-thirds of all violent crimes, have dropped for 10 straight years.

    Murder was the only violent crime that increased in 2003, with the 16,503 slayings reported by police to the FBI representing a 1.7 percent hike from the year before. Nearly eight in 10 murder victims last year were male and 90 percent were adults.

    That's because murders that came about by "liberating" countries hadn't started yet...

    Ok, sorry.

    I was 7 in 1994 so I had no real way to think about violence on a grand scale due to my age. So I really wouldn't know. My town has always been about the same violence wise...

    Although I can't remember 1994, too young, I can't imagin it getting more peaceful with more people coming into this country and also with more hostilities that have been going around.

    Could it be that we're "reporting" it better?
