2005 FBI Uniform Crime Report -Trend Charts

As was noted the other day, the data for the 2005 UCR is available on the FBI's web site.

Here are some quick charts of the data. Before we implement changes - the left will scream about rising crime rates - we should consider that the things we've been doing for the last 10 or 15 years really are working. [click on any graph for a better view]

The one area where violent crime has not fallen as dramatically as it has overall is rape. I believe that this statistic would improve if more women were armed for self-defense. [See my other posts on the 2005 UCR]

Violent Crime Rate

Murder + Nonnegligent Manslaughter Rate

Forcible Rape Rate
