"Sharp surge" in violent crime across the country

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

While the FBI has been busy breaking the law, violent crime is surging across the country:

Violent crime rose by double-digit percentages in cities across the country over the last two years, reversing the declines of the mid-to-late 1990s, according to a new report by a prominent national law enforcement association.

While overall crime has been declining nationwide, police officials have been warning of a rise in murder, robbery and gun assaults since late 2005, particularly in midsize cities and the Midwest. Now, they say, two years of data indicates that the spike is more than an aberration.
George Bush has been neglecting your safety here in America.
