    Violent crime dropped 13.4% since 2001

    Despite difficult economic conditions, the 2010 figures show a continuing decline in violent incidents nationwide, which have been dropping annually since 2006.
    There were slightly fewer than 1.25 million violent crimes in the United States in 2010, a 6% decline from calendar year 2009.
    Since 2001, violent incidents have now dropped 13.4%.
    This past year the closely watched murder totals dropped about 4.2%, from 15,399 in 2009 to 14,748 in 2010. The FBI says despite the improvement, a murder occurs in the United States every 35 minutes.
    Among reasons cited in conversations with CNN were an aging population, stepped-up community policing practices, local and federal government programs targeted at youths and programs aimed at newly released prison parolees.

    Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me
