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.

But, but I read Freakanomics and it tells me that the crime rate is directly tied to abortion...

Must go research abortion rates 17-18 years ago and see if they dropped off.
