You know, the number of crimes committed in America only number twelve million, including thefts and robberies For example:
#1) The city of Detroit, Michigan literally looks like a war zone and violent crime is thriving. So far this year in Detroit, car thefts are up 83%,
robberies are up 50%, burglaries are up 20% and property destruction is up 42%.
#2) Lawmakers in Illinois say that violence has become so rampant in Chicago that the National Guard needs to be sent in. In just one night last week
seven people were killed and 18 were wounded - mostly by gunfire. In fact, there have already been 113 murders in Chicago this year.
#3) The city of Phoenix, Arizona has become the car theft capital of the world as millions of illegal aliens who can't get work have found that
stealing cars can be very profitable indeed.
#4) There are approximately 12 million crimes committed in the United States every single year. That is by far the worst in the world. No other
nation has more than about 6 million reported crimes per year.
#5) In New York City, the number of homicides in the first quarter of the year had shot up by approximately 22 percent compared with 2009.
#6) U.S. prisons are already bursting at the seams. As you read this, there are over 2.2 million people in prison in the United States. In fact,
America leads the world in the number of prisoners and in the percentage of the population in prison. The United States has 5% of the world's
population, but 25% of the world's incarcerated population.
#7) U.S. law enforcement authorities claim that there are now over 1 million members of criminal gangs inside the country. These 1 million gang
members are responsible for up to 80% of the crimes committed in the United States each year.
#8) There are over 100,000 rapes in the United States every single year. That is the highest number for any of the countries in the United
#9) According to USA Today, 58% of state and local law enforcement agencies in the United States reported that violent criminal gangs were active in
their areas in 2008. That was up from 45% in 2004.
#10) Every year, one out of every five people is a victim of a crime in the United States. No other nation on earth has a rate that is higher..
However, it's easy to inflate things. When you factor in that there's 315 million Americans, well, the odds are actually pretty good that you
aren't going to experience these unless you go to a place where there is high crime rates. Learn where they are, then avoid them like the plague.
With a maximum of 12 million crimes, then that means that statistics like one in five suffer a crime is false because twelve million is less than ten
percent of the population.
People love to cry doom and gloom in order to sell news. And most people fall for it.
