    By the way, this is called tolling if one wants to do the research.

    Last happened in 2002 and I left AZ in 2010. Think I’m good but definitely appreciate your input!

    How do you know what he was doing? Can't go by what he said back in the 90's I was attending a class in Austin Texas for work in our county DWI diversion program. At the end of the day I went to a Denny's to eat on my way out I caught someone walking fast toward me out of the corner of my eye i drop to one knee and pulled my snub nose out of my boot, he looked shock and back off saying I though you was the manager and i wanted to know if you was hiring. I showed him my badge and told him to show me his hands at that time i heard something hit the ground and looked it was a large knife.

    Old study from 1987 using the NCVS data,
    https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/llv.pdf
    Here is the table regarding lifetime risk of crime based on data from 1975-84. Caveat is that crime declined quite a bit during the 1990's until it stabilized around the 2014-2020.
