It would be cool if the various governments and organizations of the world promoted this idea world wide...schedule it in advance and say, "World:
let's try and go one day without any violence."

about 25 per 1,000. The number of people reporting violent crimes fell from 6,323,000 in 2000 to 5,744,000 in 2001. Only about half of the violent
crimes counted in the survey were reported to police.
And a large amount of victims never report the crime in the first place..
