12 Crime Statistics That Make You Wonder What Is Happening To America

The Economic Collapse

For about a decade and a half, crime rates in the United States have generally fallen.  That is the good news.  The bad news is that even during those “good” years, the United States still had the most car thefts, the most rapes and the most murders in the world.  And even though the United States has the most people in prison in the entire world by a large margin, there are all kinds of signs that there are still enough criminals out there for crime to start moving back up again.  Sure, there are some areas that are still recording small decreases in the crime rate, but there are other areas where the jump in crime statistics is more than a bit alarming.  There are millions of Americans that have been out of work for over a year at this point, and when people lose everything that they have they tend to totally lose it.  People get desperate when they lose their homes and they don’t have anything to eat.  For example, police in Chesterfield, Virginia are investigating 16 separate incidents just this month in which thieves stole food or drinks from homes, cars and even people walking on the street.  It wasn’t money that these crooks were after.  They just wanted something to eat.  As the economy gets even worse over the next couple of years, it is inevitable that we are going to start to see a lot more of this kind of thing.  Frustration and anger are on the rise from coast to coast, and when people don’t feel like they have anything to live for they become very dangerous.

As mentioned at the beginning of the article, it is undeniable that violent crime rates are significantly lower than they were 15 or 20 years ago in many areas of the nation.  An unprecedented standard of living fueled by our addiction to debt has kept most Americans fat, happy and generally sedated.  However, there are indications that we are approaching a “turning point” – a moment when crime rates start to go up significantly once again.

In fact, there are some forms of crime (such as sexual crime against children) that are already at ridiculously high record-setting levels.  For example, how in the world did we ever get to the point as a society where we have 400,000 registered sex predators running around?

As the economy continues to unravel, things are not going to get any better.  In fact, people who are suffering are only going to become more desperate.  Already, there are quite a few troubling signs out there.  The following are 12 crime statistics that make you wonder what is happening to America….

#1 The murder rate in New York City has increased more than 15 percent in 2010, and the number of rapes has shot up from 943 in 2009 to 1075 so far this year.

#2 In the city of Detroit, crime has gotten so bad and the citizens are so frustrated by the lack of police assistance that they have resorted to forming their own organizations to fight back.  One group, known as “Detroit 300″, was formed after a 90-year-old woman on Detroit’s northwest side was brutally raped in August.

#3 Crime in Miami Beach was up almost 11 percent during the first half of 2010.

#4 The murder rate in Tempe, Arizona is now the highest it has been in 10 years.

#5 Shoplifting is completely and totally out of control.  According to the National Association of Shoplifting Prevention, every single day Americans steal more than $35 million worth of goods from retail stores.

#6 Today, there are approximately 400,00 registered sex offenders in the United States.

#7 U.S. authorities claim that there are now over 1 million members of criminal gangs operating inside the United States. According to federal statistics, these 1 million gang members are responsible for up to 80% of the violent crimes committed in the U.S. each year.

#8 The median age of the victims of imprisoned sex offenders in the United States is 13 years old.

#9 The crime rate in the San Diego school system is escalating out of control. The following is what San Diego School Police Chief Don Braun recently told the press about the current situation….

“Violent crime in schools has risen 31 percent. Property crime has risen 12 percent. Weapons violations (have gone up) almost 8 percent.”

#10 53 percent of all investigated burglaries in the states of California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens.

#11 Law enforcement officials estimate that about 600,000 Americans and 65,000 Canadians are trading dirty child pictures online.  They also say that the total profit from creating and trading these images is approximately two to three billion dollars every year.

#12 Each year, one out of every five people in the U.S. is victimized by crime.  No other nation on the planet has a rate that is higher.

So will the police step in to protect us all as crime increases?

Well, unfortunately police forces all across the United States are being slashed because the money just isn’t there anymore.

So all of us may soon be facing much more crime with much fewer police to assist us.

For example, because of extreme budget cuts and police layoffs, Oakland, California Police Chief Anthony Batts has announced that there are a number of crimes that his department simply will no longer respond to due to a lack of resources.  The following is a partial list of the crimes that police officers in Oakland will no longer be responding to….

  • burglary
  • theft
  • embezzlement
  • grand theft
  • grand theft: dog
  • identity theft
  • false information to peace officer
  • required to register as sex or arson offender
  • dump waste or offensive matter
  • loud music
  • possess forged notes
  • pass fictitious check
  • obtain money by false voucher
  • fraudulent use of access cards
  • stolen license plate
  • embezzlement by an employee
  • extortion
  • attempted extortion
  • false personification of other
  • injure telephone/power line
  • interfere with power line
  • unauthorized cable tv connection
  • vandalism

Not that Oakland wasn’t already a mess before all this, but now how long do you think it will be before total chaos and anarchy reigns on the streets of Oakland?

But this kind of thing is not just happening in Oakland.

The sheriff’s department in Ashtabula County, Ohio has been reduced from 112 deputies to 49 deputies, and now there is just one vehicle remaining to patrol all 720 square miles of the county.

So what in the world are the citizens of that county supposed to do to protect themselves?

Well, Judge Alfred Mackey said that the citizens of the county should do the following….

“Arm themselves.”

So is that where all of this is going?

Every man and woman for themselves?

The truth is that there are already many communities across the United States where it is simply not a good idea to go out of your home at night.

There has never been a bigger gang problem in U.S. history than we are facing today, there have never been more sex predators running around, and millions of Americans are going to become increasingly desperate as they lose their homes and can’t find jobs.

So how is crime where you live?  Feel free to leave a comment with what you are seeing in your neighborhood….

  1. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    Free Men don’t ask for permission to bear arms. Since when have inalienable rights become available only for those who obtain a government permit? Scripted TV programming has destroyed the American people’s minds.

      Listen to this story gary ‘OK and listen closely ‘My wife’s mother and father where here last night, ‘I told them a story about her, there daughter who is my wife, Now I am happy to say ‘I told them something that happened to her when she was just, 12 years old It was wintertime around december, ‘And the snow was blowing freezing cold, in the year 1997 ‘She happened to be looking out her living room window, at the blowing snow and she seen a girl standing by a street pole a young girl all bundled up in close by her home, ‘The street sigh was all that was visible except for this girl ‘She looked at her mother and father and new they would not help her ‘They would just call the police and she did not like them much either because they have been called on her.
      My wife grew up with parent’s just like mine, taught to believe what you here not to think for themselves this letter i am righting is the most powerful story, ‘I have ever written it show’s the ugly truth from the heart of a 12 year old kid. Susan’s words ‘Here is how I got her into my home I climbed out my bedroom window onto the garage and jumped down into the snow it was about six inches deep. ‘I was able to get her into the house very carefully and quietly and up to my room, while my parents where sleeping. ‘The reason I didn’t tell my parents was because they would have put her in jail by calling the police, ‘I knew that wouldn’t help her, ‘See she had a half ounce of bad drugs, on her person, ‘She was shaking and sweating and very skinny and cold. ‘It would have just killed her even more. ‘I feel that police are ever controlling people that have no heart, or feelings, for the most part not for any poor soul, like her’ She had bruises on her mouth and just looked horrible! So yea ‘I seen wright of that she was abused sexually, physically, and mentally, ‘This little eight year old girl, that was freezing to death had I not helped her out of the cold. ‘They arrest you for no reason at all to me. ‘I was only 12 years old when, ‘I did all this and now, ‘I am 23 years old married and just gave birth to my new born son. ‘I am very happy and would help anyone that wanted of that poison called crack cocaine, This is how I helped her I made a little bed in my closet one that had a sliding door on both side’s with a little lock in the middle. I laid sleeping bag’s down in the closet in the far back left side of my closet that is where she could feel the heat when it came on. I had a younger sister named maria who had a spare bedroom next to mine with a little hallway connecting the bedrooms but i was not going to tell her because she would have blown my cover she was my mothers little snitch. The first night was rough because of all the poison she had in her, ‘I knew a little bit about it because I experimented with it myself a little enough to know it was poison! I cleaned her up and after i put some new dry clothes on her, ‘I found it under her close in a bag I asked her how much of it she had been smoking and for how long, and she told me that bogie she got two weeks ago that she was trying to make last and that she was addicted to it and she needed it. I told her this! If I am going to help you she had to give up the habit. ‘She was going to object but by the time she did I flushed it down our toilet! She couldn’t keep anything down so ‘I always had to check on her to make sure she was doing ‘OK I did not feel I was breaking the law either, ‘Because I did not know it was against the law to help somebody then. ‘I kept her in my home for three weeks without telling anyone because, I knew if i did the police would be at my door to take her. The next few nights where better because she was able to keep fluids down And light food like crackers She stayed in my closet so no one would see her. Every morning before I went to school would give her water and light snacks so she wouldn’t starve or dehydrate, ‘She started looking better after a week or so like a healthy person again. And after three weeks I let her go home. She explained to me that she had a home to go to, in between those weeks she spent with me we talked secretly I went in the closet with her The first thing she talked about with me was her family she told me she had two sisters and and older brother and that that there where time’s that she felt alone because they grew distant from her because she felt different than them she didn’t like sport’s or activities like they did, ‘I read a little bit out of the bile to her every night I put a little night light in there so that I could read it to her, She just listened she did tell me though that at a friends birthday party she was pressured to do this drug and that if she didn’t do it, ‘They would call her a sissy and a weakling and label her as not cool and I said You are not a sissy or a weakling and that your very brave for wanting to get help! ‘So I got curious and asked her how she was able to get the drug at such a young age. She told me she performed sexual favors for older men! And started immediately started crying so I held her! Her name was ‘Carra She had dark brown hair and baby blue eye’s I gave her a hug before she left and gave her the best advise I knew and that was stay away from people that pressure you. ‘She went out the window, ‘I had originally jumped out to get her. ‘The garage was on a slant so at the bottom was only three feet to the yard, I watched her as she walked away I had tear’s in my eye’s but they where not sad they where joy because I knew I did something good for ‘Carra. “Two month’s later i received a letter because I gave her my address to write me. ‘Here is what she said ‘Dear ‘Susan
      ‘I am pleased to tell you that I am back in school, and ‘I am graduating second grade going onto my third I am also wanting to say thank you for overcoming my habit You saved my life and I am grateful I am back with my family because of you I hope to see you again but if I don’t thanks’ for everything that you did for me. That day to help me realize that what I was doing was wrong and harmful to my body.
      ‘My mom is grateful and happy that I am home and drug free. ‘I am going to end this letter now thanks again Sincerely “Carra’ Gary they didn’t believe a word i said her mother looked like she just seen a demon, shaking her head no that didn’t happen! ‘There daughter my wife did the most wonderful thing I have ever heard of in this pathetic world, and they both denied it! ‘We live in a society that is under siege not but not by the police or the drug dealers but by ‘Principles and power’s just like christ taught ‘If we would all think more like children and stop this self denial of what we are all children of a loving kind creator one that I personally know because i was also on a road to hell sent there by our creator himself it sent me to the darkest places on earth. ‘Angels are around me one is named susan and I am living proof sir there is a something called ‘Almighty and they have been in my life for a long time, forcing me to see thing;s that know other person could ever see, I didn’t even understand why! ‘Now I know ‘I am the white rooster the one who is to know a witness of the evil we have become and when i shout heaven hears me, because I believe it my faith is a universe around my mind! ‘I hope more police act kinder when someone is poor treat them with respect please if someone flags you over try to be nice to them. I know why everyone is so mean I have learned thing’s in my trial’s that no one else could see and one of them is my wife’s story, god brought her to me because we are both witness of something and that.s why i wrote this for her!
      ‘Amen’

    Crime where I live is virtually non existant. We have a full complement of police officers and they spend most of their time chasing the speeding Ferraris down the main street. We have no street people, no bag ladies, no outward evidence of poverty at all. However I do live in a very upscale municipality which has the highest per capita income in the nation. Still, very little crime mars our country which I chalk up to our greater distribution of the rewards of our fast moving economy to everyone in society not just to the elites. No one goes hungry if they don’t want to. No one suffers from untreated illnesses if they don’t want to. No one has to sleep on the street if they don’t want to. I would prefer, thank you very much, to live in my society than in one that has the most billionaires in the world but also the most poverty in any Western nation.

      And you and your family are just the people that these gang members will go after when it all comes apart at the seams. Simply because you feel like your money is your protection it will also be your doom.
