Something good about homicide news


Recommended Posts

The news stories about USA murders, child deaths, etc. seem to have mushroomed lately and I wondered if it was due to news sources fixating on them or if it was due to increases in deaths and injuries.  So I did some online searching.

It turns out the murder and child injury-death rates made strong improvements, from the 90's to about 2013 and are still low compared to a generation ago.  That doesn't make those that occur any less sad, but at least we don't have to worry that society is falling apart in the respect for life aspects.
