Violent crime in America has been decreasing for 20 years. Over all, the trend is still very good. But the FBI reports today that, in 2015, there was a jump in the nationwide murder rate of 10.8 percent. Devlin Barrett of the Wall Street Journal started reporting on crime in the 1990s, the decade he calls "the battle years."
