Item: FBI: Violent Crime Still on Rise in 2006

Full post here

Murders and robberies continued to rise across the country during the first six months of 2006, on pace for an increase in violent crime for a second straight year, preliminary FBI data released Monday show. The numbers reflect what police across the country have been saying for months: that the lull in crime between 2001 and 2004 appears to be over. Last year, violent crime rose 2.2 percent nationally - the first increase since 2001/Associated Press.

Question: Have you ever been the victim of a violent crime?
