US civilian (as opposed to state-conducted) crime, including for murder, has been dropping for decades according to this recent article and the FBI's own reporting. Yet, strangely, what's keeping the US Attorney General up at night is "... the alarming rise in the number of Americans who are more than willing to attack and kill their fellow citizens." Huh? Oh, wait, Holder's referring to the 50 American citizens his organization spied on, set up, arrested, or indicted for arguably vague and unarguably questionable charges of "terrorism" over the past two years. I suspect what's really keeping Holder up at night is the declining marketplace for his government services, and broad "customer" dissatisfaction with the price they are paying.
