Identity Theft - I've been through 3 of them.

Attempted theft - auto - once.

Petty theft - (stuff in car when they tried to steal it - CD player, radar detector)

Road rage/reckless driving - used to be almost daily. Lots of idiots out there.

I would have to guess a robbery. Some fool running up and saying "gimme your money".
Followed by "oh ****, he's got a gun" and some real quick running by the robber. :rolf

But i would have to say robbery of some kind.

Watching our wonderful government over step its constitution limits as if they were not there. I could go on but that pretty much sums it up.
Don't really know the right answer but did I mention I carry a gun!?
Can't wait to hear the real answer.

I would say Assault. A crime that occurs when one person tries to physically harm another in a way that makes the person under attack feel immediately threatened. Actual physical contact is not necessary; threatening gestures that would alarm any reasonable person can constitute an assault.


Airhead - when someone enters your car without permission whether forceable or not with the intention of committing a crime its burglary

I guess I should have said..Violent Crime..in my original question...Now go look up statistics and I think you'll find aggravated Assault is the number one Violent Crime..

2nd question..What is the most common intent of aggravated assaults?

What is the most common crime any of us would face?

As a woman I'd have to say r*ape would be what I fear the most. I don't know how common it is as many are probably not even reported. A man would not face this type of crime as often as a woman would but it is very feasible that a woman would face this. It's becoming more common after a robbery just because animal men take advantage of an already bad situation.

Assault of any kind.

I fear that the illegal immigrants and the already here selfish, liberal bleed hearts, lazy, good for nothing, will not work, "I deserve" it generation will ruin our country. Read my lips. NO ONE OWES YOU ANYTHING. YOU WANT SOMETHING YOU GET OUT THERE AND WORK YOUR BUNNY OFF FOR IT LIKE THE REST OF US DO!

Dang, SwampRat, now I've gone and shouted myself into an attitude.

I need to get back to my 12.5 yo son who is having a cooking lesson. He is making chocolate chip cookies all by himself. Real men get in the kitchen and help cook AND clean up.

My guess would be to intimidate someone else.
Second guess, would be robbery.

Good for MamaBear..you touched on it. But rape is a secondary crime that follows the first most committed aggravated assault and for the most part committed as an after thought or when the opportunity to presents itself...

Bingo again, as that is the answer to the 2nd question..

75% of all Robbery is Personal Robbery..

3rd question: Where do almost all personal robberies happen?...
Now understand there is huge difference between burglary and robbery..

Damnit Girl..you're on your game today..great answer...

These are called 'Transitional Areas" or Fringe areas..Places we pass thru to get to somewhere else.The best example of a fringe area is a mall parking lot. There are too many people in the middle of the mall for the criminal to be successful. And by the time you are in your car and driving away, you are beyond his reach. A parking lot, however, meets the criteria he needs. There are enough people to find a victim, you are out of reach of immediate help, he can still get to you *and* he can easily escape after he has mugged you.

Parking lots are transitional places: You are either walking or driving in/out of them -- you are not loitering. If someone is not moving, there is usually an immediately identifiable reason. The car hood is up, they are unloading or loading their vehicle, preparing to drive or gathering something up, getting something out of the trunk, fussing with a problem before they walk out of the parking lot.

Now that we have the three answers to the most commonly committed violent crime..lets take a look at what kind of person commits these crimes and what we should look for and how to identify a possible threat.

Any parking lot, stairwell, ATM to and from an event etc are transitional or fringe areas

1) Most common violent crime against a person? Answer:Aggravated Assault

2) Most common type of aggravated assault? Answer: Robbery

3) Most common location of Robbery? Answer:Transitional or Fringe areas

Consider that 75% of all Robberies are Personal. That means 25% are usually what would be considered "High Value" targets. Such as office buildings, banks, convenience stores, retail shops etc..Where the Risk vs Reward is greater..More bounty, higher risk of getting caught. The Robber is usually a little higher on the intelligence scale than the mugger.

I agree. Especially if think about the numbers. Most can be avoided IF you know what to look for..
