Description: I find it interesting that robbery and violent crimes in general have decreased significantly from 1986 - 2005. This is surprising to me because with out looking at the statistics my guess would have been that crime rate would have been higher in 2005 than in 1986. Old people always say things were better back in their day when the world was more innocent. Well according to statistics the world was not better back then because crime rate has decreased in the 2000's. Murder has also decreased since 1986 as well. If someone would have asked me if I thought crime has gone up or down since 1986 before seeing these statistics, I would have said up.
