US Crime Rate Has Historic Drop

The FBI released its latest Uniform Crime Reporting survey recently, revealing a significant positive trend across the US, with both violent and property crimes dropping by double digits.

Data from the first quarter of 2024 shows that reported violent crime decreased by 15.2 percent compared to the same period in 2023.

Specifically, murder rates fell by over 26 percent, rape incidents decreased by 25.7 percent, robbery cases dropped by 17.8 percent, and aggravated assault reports went down by 12.5 percent.

Property crime also saw a decline, with a reduction of just over 15 percent.

The report includes data from more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies at the city, county, state, tribal, university and college, and federal levels.

This is a pretty incredible drop in crime. It is a good thing to see after the crime spikes of the last couple years. It is too easy to be sucked into the negative, main-stream news cycle. I think it is always important that we take note when things get better. That is what we are trying to do here at Daily Upsider.
