The FBI Says Violent Crime Fell But Murders Went Up During The First Half Of 2017

4

Violent crime in the United States declined slightly during the first half of 2017, even as the number of murders increased over the same period, according to FBI statistics released Tuesday.

The FBI released a limited set of preliminary statistics capturing the first six months of 2017 and showing that crimes including rape, robbery and aggravated assault all fell over that period when compared to the year before, while there were more murders and an uptick in motor vehicle thefts.

The overall decline in violent crime – which fell by 0.8 percent in the first half of 2017 – comes on the heels of two consecutive years of such figures increasing across the country.

  1. Fake news. How would the corrupt FBI know anything? They’re busy protecting Hillary and Comey. In their spare time, they prosecute evil white racist males for hate crimes.

      • Can you please explain your accusation that “parts” of the FBI are corrupt? Which parts are? Which parts aren’t? Can an organization be trusted if parts of it are corrupt?

    • The FBI is like the Shin Bet who claimed that terrorism went up since Trump made Jerusalem the capital of Israel. They can both compete in corruption.
