In the sermon this morning, the pastor made reference to the increase in violent crime that our culture has to face and deal with. Fortunately, violent crime in the U.S. has been on a decline for over 10 years. Here are US Department of Justice charts and numbers describing these trends:

Violent Crimes
Violent Crimes by Gender
Property Crimes
Firearm Related Crimes

Text summary:

  • The violent crime rate decreased 2.2% from 2003 to 2004. From 1995 to 2004 the rate fell 32.0%.
  • The property crime rate decreased 2.1% from 2003 to 2004. From 1995 to 2004, the rate fell 23.4%.
