    ...& overall 2008 homicides have fallen back to 2002 levels. Blunt objects, stabbing, burning, strangulation, stabbing & other means are all over the map. Notice on the chart below that the period between 75' through 95' was a virtual homicidal bloodbath...

    That sucks for the Obama Administration. I guess we need some more Federal Government subsidized gunrunning. They can keep it within US borders and just do it interstate and inner city this time. Problem solved.

    The number of violent crimes in the United States dropped significantly last year, to what appeared to be the lowest rate in nearly 40 years, a development that was considered puzzling partly because it ran counter to the prevailing expectation that crime would increase during a recession.

    In all regions, the country appears to be safer. The odds of being murdered or robbed are now less than half of what they were in the early 1990s, when violent crime peaked in the United States. Small towns, especially, are seeing far fewer murders: In cities with populations under 10,000, the number plunged by more than 25 percent last year.

    Does anyone else think that an aging population has anything to do with it?

    That is what happens when democrats are in charge, people think they can get away with whatever the fuck they want, and accrording to the general holder case, under democrat rule apparently they can.
