|WASHINGTON - The murder rate jumped by more than 10 percent among dozens of large U.S. cities since 2004, a study shows in the latest sign that a national lull in violent crime has ended.
Robberies also spiked during the two-year period, as did felony assaults and attacks with guns, according to the report to be released Friday by the Police Executive Research Forum, a Washington-based law enforcement think tank.
FBI data similarly has shown a rise in violent crime, if not as dramatic, since 2004. The Justice Department says crime was historically low that year.
