  •  Crime may have diminished (0+ / 0-)

    recently in the country as a whole, but violent crime has increased in Oakland. 120 murders and counting this year.

    •  The murder rate is not as high as it has (0+ / 0-)

      been in the past.

      1992 and 1993 were all-time highs, and 2006 looks like it will be higher than 2012.

      Whether all violent crime has increased in Oakland since the 1980's I don't know, but it doesn't look like the number of murders has substantially changed since then, although it has varied a lot over the years.
