2 people killed by a gunman in California
In Inglewood, both a 4-year-old boy and his father were shot and killed, and another two young children and a woman were wounded when the gunman set fire to their home, causing an enormous blaze. The attacker wore a painter’s mask, apparently to hide his identity. A police perimeter has been formed to search for the man; no motive is known at this time. source
» A downward trend continues: When the FBI compared the first half of 2010 to the first half of 2011, they found that violent crimes were down in quite a number of categories, including murder, rape and aggrivated assault. Why has crime been in a downward trend? It could be due to “tougher laws, better policing and an aging population.” That’s right, guys: Our cultural old age is (possibly) causing a drop in crime.
