Murder Rate Lowest Since 1965 By Dr. Reo Symes

Despite what your local newscasts – your ‘Freeway Chase Channel 7’s and ‘Warehouse Fire Fox 13s’ – might lead you to believe, seems living in relatively safe times:

The nation’s murder rate declined last year for the first time in four years, dropping to the lowest level in 40 years. Experts said local rather than national trends were mostly responsible.

Just like I’ve always said, All murder is local. Glad the so called experts are catching up with me. But the good news ain’t just limited to murder:

The rates for all seven major crimes were down and the overall violent crime rate reached a 30-year low, according to the FBI’s annual compilation of crimes reported to the police.

I’m not saying this means you can now sleep with the door unlocked, or that it’s now a good idea to tell the wife, “You ain’t got the guts to pull that trigger,” (never wanna play that scene that way, no matter what the rate is) but… it is kinda nice to see a societal trend headed in the right direction, that the world doesn’t necessarily have to spiral into anarchy.

Good news is news too.
