How much crime really occurs? Don’t ask the feds. | Law Class | Scoop.it

FBI statistics do not reflect online crime, gun trafficking and other post-1930 illicit activities.

The current -- and, most would agree, outdated -- taxonomy of offenses is the Uniform Crime Reporting system. Right now, the national statistics index is limited to violent crime, murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny theft, motor vehicle theft and arson. This regime masks the extent to which drug trafficking, or gun trafficking for that matter, fuels other crimes, experts note. The possible correlations are a flash point in the current debates over legalizing drugs and controlling the border with Mexico.
