WASHINGTON (AP) -- Violent crime against students in schools fell by 50 percent between 1992 and 2002, and young people are more often targeted for violence away from school, according to a government report released Monday.

There were about 24 crimes of rape, sexual assault, robbery and physical assault for every 1,000 students in 2002, down from 48 per 1,000 a decade earlier, said the report from the Education and Justice departments.

I am happy to hear that crime and voilence decline in general school across the united states. but In the latter end, there will be worse with them around many events in future than the beginning.

You know why?? Its because the republicans made tougher crime laws. Like in florida its
10=years possesion use of a gun unless self defense.
20=years if you pull a trigger unless self defense.
Death= if the vitcim dies.

So teens know in florida youre up the shits creek if you commit a gun crime.
