MAJOR RISE IN VIOLENT CRIME
A violent crime occurs when an offender or perpetrator uses or threatens to use force against a victim.
Murder, assault, sexual assault, rape, kidnapping, homicide, manslaughter, and negligence are examples of violent crimes. Violent crime includes both crimes where the violent act is the goal (murder or rape) and crimes where violence is merely a means to an end.
The prevalence of violent crime varies greatly between countries. Although there is no single cause of crime, there are numerous factors that influence crime rates. Countries with high crime rates typically have high levels of poverty and a scarcity of job opportunities. Crime rates are lower in countries with better living conditions.
According to official FBI statistics released Monday, the number of murders in the United States increased by nearly 30 percent in 2020 compared to the previous year, the largest single-year increase ever recorded in the country.
According to the data, there will be 21,570 homicides in the United States in 2020, which is 4,901 more than in 2019.
The tally demonstrates – in concrete terms – how violent last year was.
The overall violent crime rate, which includes murder, assault, robbery, and rape, increased by about 5%, while property crimes continued their long-term decline and fell by 8% in 2019.
