We live in an age of Instant

We live in an age of Instant 24/7 news and information. Before the internet and cellphones, when people had to rely on only tv/radio news broadcasts [few times a day for tv], and daily newspapers, MANY 'incidents' were not reported on or at best only briefly, often inaccurately.

Homicides are way down compared to the 1970s,80s, and into the 90s. Bear in mind many victims today live due to better trauma treatment and medical care. There are still plenty of assaults going on, MANY go unreported. Aside from murders, I'd be wary of many police statistics. They can be easily fudged. Not just here, but everywhere.
