  20. 20. Washington, D.C. June 11, 2012FBI National Press Office (202) 324-36 Violent Crime In 2011, all four of the violent crime offense categories—murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault—declined nationwide when compared with data from 2010. Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter declined 1.9 percent, while forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault each declined 4.0 percent. Violent crime declined in all city groups. Cities with populations of 50,000 to 99,999 saw the largest decrease (5.2 percent) in violent crime. Violent crime decreased 6.6 percent in metropolitan counties and 4.7 percent in nonmetropolitan counties. Within city groups, murder and nonnegligent manslaughter offenses increased the most (18.3 percent) in cities with populations under 10,000. Cities with populations of 50,000 to 99,999 showed the largest decrease of murder and nonnegligent manslaughter offenses (14.4 percent). 20
  21. 21.  All city groupings experienced a decline in forcible rapes except in cities with 500,000 to 999,999 inhabitants, which had the increase in forcible rapes (0.5 percent). Forcible rape offenses declined 6.8 percent in metropolitan counties and 9.0 percent in nonmetropolitan counties. Robbery offenses decreased in all city groupings, with the greatest decrease (5.3 percent) in cities with 50,000 to 99,999 inhabitants. Robberies decreased 7.5 percent in metropolitan counties and 3.6 percent in nonmetropolitan counties. Aggravated assaults decreased in all city groups. Cities with 50,000 to 99,999 inhabitants experienced the largest decrease at 5.3 percent. Aggravated assaults declined in both county groups, with a decrease of 6.3 percent in metropolitan counties and 4.2 percent in nonmetropolitan counties. Violent crime decreased in all four regions (4.9 percent in the Midwest, 4.7 percent in the West, 4.5 percent in the South, and 0.8 percent in the Northeast). 21

  28. 28. Thus, these were politically motivated. In some cases the motivation is religious, or of a cult nature.But most of the violence we as a society experience is at that liminal region where intergroup and interpersonal violence overlap. 28

  40. 40. Name some of the most likelyreasons (social facts/forces) thatare the cause for such high rates ofviolence in America. 40
  41. 41.  Media violence TV, Film, Music (possibly), Video Games… Guns (they are everywhere). Structural strain – (relative deprivation)  Poverty  Unequal distribution of wealth  Impossible standards of that wealth  Disillusionment from efforts already made 41
  42. 42. Is, then, violence at the levels we have it now inevitable?The text (Lauer and Lauer 2006) suggests the possibility when it states: 42
  43. 43. “[P]olitical arrangements virtually guarantee a certain amount of violence in a society that has groups with diverse and strong beliefs, interests, and demands.”The Lauers then give examples of the KKK and other anti-imigrant groups that have sprung up in response to the inherent diversity of our social structure. 43
  44. 44.  If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns (fallacy of appeal to prejudice—i.e. emotional, not logical) How vulnerable are we to violence if we give up our guns? Who should have guns? 44
  45. 45.  How high is the homicide rate in the US versus Europe? Discuss Columbine High School shooting. The rate of homicides with knives versus firearms is about 1:5 How effective are guns in the aggregate as a means of self-protection? (See the following) 45
  46. 46. NOTE: A study of firearm related deaths in the state of Washington found that where guns were kept in the household they were rarely used to protect the owners. For every instance of a homicide for self-protection, there were 43 deaths of residents by suicide, criminal homicide, or accidental gunshot. Only one-half of one percent of the cases involved the shooting of an intruder.The researchers concluded that firearms in the home increase the danger to the owner. (Kellermann et al, 1992 in Lauer and Lauer) 46
  47. 47. Just when do people, in the aggregate, begin to demonstrate resistance to change with the possibility of violence?Remember Davies and his infamous J-curve?Take a look: 47
  48. 48. 48
  49. 49. Davies is referencing the concept of “relative deprivation.” Learn the term. It is a condition in which one group has more than another group, the latter will feel deprived. Additionally it means that there is a widening gap between what people want and what they get—this leads to a revolutionary situation. 49
  50. 50. Further, people do not revolt when the society is generally impoverished. Rather, people develop a revolutionary state of mind when they sense a thereat to their expectations of greater opportunities to satisfy needs. Five Minute Write: US revolution? 50
