Violent Crime Spikes In Michigan; Half The Murders In Detroit

Violent crime rising throughout US, FBI says

Reports of violent crime increased in Niagara County by 9 percent, where the overall crime rate also grew by 4 percent, according to the News' analysis.

New Jersey's overall violent crime rate has dropped more than 4% percent a year ago.

Violent crimes across the U.S. Approximately 70 percent of American cities with at least 20 murders in 2014 reported increases during the two-year period, said Jeff Asher, a New Orleans-based crime analyst.

The murder rate soared over 20 percent in the country's largest cities, the Federal Bureau of Investigation report shows.

The Brennan Center for Justice released a report this month predicting that, if current preliminary numbers hold steady, 2017 will indeed see a decrease in both overall and violent crime. "And we must do it together", Mr. Sessions said in a statement Monday. The FBI hopes the New UCR Program [materials] launched in February will increase agency participation in all 50 states for more accurate reporting. These increases were nationwide, with the average violent crime rate increasing in cities over 250,000 in population, in cities under 10,000 in population, in suburban areas, and in every size in-between.

"False narratives about a national crime wave will not help".

The FBI's 2016 tally includes several high-profile killings - including as the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, where 49 people were killed, and the Dallas ambush, when a lone gunman killed 5 police officers protecting protesters downtown. Property crime, meanwhile, fell for the 14th year in a row, dropping by 1.4 percent.

Explosion at Tower Hill underground station in London
Transport for London said there was disruption on the circle and district lines while the matter is dealt with. The cause of the explosion was a rogue mobile phone charger, according to the authorities.

Experts, however, called into question whether the increases for 2015 and 2016 would be part of any longer-term trend.

But, as he was heading late Monday afternoon to a Neighborhood Watch meeting in Riverbank, he said, "early intervention, prevention and education, along with engaging the community by helping us through the Neighborhood Watch and other crime reduction efforts, will also have a positive net effect on property crime".

Violent crime, including aggravated assault and murder, rose for a second consecutive year in the United States last year.

The crime rates in the FBI's annual report on crime in the United States are estimates because, while the agency receives data from law-enforcement agencies all across the country, not all provide an entire year's worth of information.

The new numbers show that violent crime increased by 11 percent from 2015 in Myrtle Beach.

For the City of Spokane, violent crime is up 15% and property crime is up 3%, but, it doesn't necessarily mean more crimes are taking place. In his inaugural address, President Donald Trump described "American carnage" in USA cities, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions said earlier this year that he anxious the crime uptick was "the beginning of a trend".
