    A four-year drop in violent crimes reported to authorities in the U.S. continued in the first six months of 2011, according to a preliminary FBI report.

    Violent crime in the U.S. fell 6.4 percent from January through June compared with the same period a year earlier, and property crimes fell 3.7 percent, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation report released today.

    All four categories of violent crime surveyed -- robbery, rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, and aggravated assault -- decreased in the first six months of the year compared to the same period in 2010, according to the FBI.
