The previous post was a bit light on data, so this post is going to make up for that by giving the reader an overview of the data. The DOJ has a lot of interesting crime related statistics and is the source of these charts.
Imprisonment rate has been going up, but it decelerated recently.
Motor vehicle theft is down.
Property crimes have been steadily declining:
Homicide rates have been dropping recently, but they are not back toe their 1900 levels.
Nonfatal firearm related violent crime has also been going down:
Public order crime (which include weapons and immigration) and drug crimes have been on the rise.
With the recent drop in crime, the police have become more efficient in terms of making more arrests per crime committed.
