Question of the Day — 9/26/05

Issue: U.S. crime rate holds at 30-year low: Violent assault, robbery down 57% since 1993/Associated Press.

Reality Check: “My sense is that complacency is not justified. This rate means we’re down to about twice the level of crime when I was growing up in the 1950s,” said Mark A.R. Kleiman, an expert on crime control policy who teaches at UCLA.

Question: Are you comforted by statistics that show violent crimes is leveling off? And/or: Have you been the victim of a violent crime?
