    FBI Report: Americans Less Violent than Ever, Except for Police

    "a study recently published by Pew Charitable Trusts showed that for the first time in decades, the US prison population is actually on a decline. Their research found that the drop in crime that was seen in 2013 actually coincided with a decline in the prison population. According to their data, the amount of people in the US prison system peaked in 2008, and has since dropped 6%."

    Metta, when somebody swims the moat and robs your castle, who you gonna call? Call Black Lives Matter or Ghostbusters or whomever. But don't call the police you're so disdainful of.

    More than 100 illegal aliens whom the Obama administration released back into the community went on to be charged with subsequent killings:

    This is in line with the FBI statistics that document a nearly 50% drop in violent crime, including homicide in the 20 years of 1993-2013.

    It also calls into question Metta's constant drumbeat for more gun control in the "Shootings....shootings...and more shootings! Daily life in the USA!" thread.

    That despite record sales of guns in the USA in Oct 2015 and about 200,000,000 new guns in private ownership since the FBI started doing Brady checks.

    There's a lot to be disdainful about. I'm surprised the crime situation is not worse. Especially in light of the recent police trends.
