While looking at these reports I also noticed that discrimination in race had a tendency to be a contribution to many of the crimes in the reports.

Crime Data Comparison RJ CJS/231 Crime Data Comparison Crime can be found in any and every part of the U.S. While there are many categories of crimes, the area of a state, for instance, metropolitan, suburban, or rural, drastically changes the statistics of a single crime committed in on metropolitan area, and can differ greatly when compared to another metropolitan area.
