From [HERE] The FBI today released crime data from 2017, showing a decrease in all categories of crime across the country. Ames Grawert, senior counsel in the Justice Program at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law and author of a snap analysis of today’s data, issued the following statement:
“Crime declined nationwide last year, consistent with our earlier analyses of 2017 data in the nation’s 30 largest cities. That’s the good news. The bad news is that even while crime is falling, the number of Americans incarcerated remains near-record highs. Now is the time to address the problem. Congress and states should back commonsense sentencing reform that would correct grave injustices in the way we sentence and incarcerate. Republicans and Democrats agree on this issue, and Congress has no excuse for punting on criminal justice reform yet again. We’re hopeful that, by the end of this year, legislation will be passed to send people home from prison.”
The FBI reported that the national crime rate fell 3.3 percent in 2017. The Brennan Center’s 2017 analysis found that the drop is in large part driven by continued declines in property crime. During the same period, the national murder rate fell 1.45 percent. Declines were especially pronounced in cities with populations over 1 million, where total murders decreased by 8.1 percent.

According to FUNKTIONARY
crime - as we are programmed to perceive it involves drugs, theft, murder, etc., most of which is an outward expression or release of energy by the victims from the circumstances conjured up by Doggy and the criminals which make up the majority of what passes as criminality, but in reality, the victimization of the masses by the means in which they are left to live by. Crime is so-called ""government's"' biggest industry, followed closely by propaganda. Corporate State derives revenue on both sides of the law (licenses and fees) so you can avoid having to pay (penalties, violations, fees, citations, peonage, and jail time) for ""breaking" the law- (i.e.. Roman civil law). (See: Corporate State. "•Government/' Citizenship & Servitude)
