Crime is a Growing
Epidemic in this Country
One of the greatest threats facing our country is the epidemic of violence that has already destroyed so many of our communities and now threatens every segment of our society. In 1994, the American people were victimized by more than 42 million crimes, including nearly 11 million violent crimes. According to the FBI, a crime is committed every 2 seconds -- and a violent crime every 17 seconds. But only 1 in 100 violent crimes ends in a jail sentence. And once in jail, that criminal will serve only a fraction of his or her sentence. The total cost of this mayhem is more than $400 billion every year. And youth violence is on the rise: many experts predict that juvenile arrests will double by the year 2010.
Since Bill Clinton took office, trends in violent crime haven't improved. There were 500,000 more crime victims in 1994 than there were when Clinton took office. In all there were nearly 10 million violent crime victimizations in our country in 1995 alone.
Bob Dole's Action Plan to Combat Violent Crime

A Better America
With Bob Dole as President, the government will once again protect its citizens from crime. With a Dole-Kemp Administration, women won't be afraid to walk alone at night, children will be safe playing ball in the neighborhood park, and Americans won't have to buy a second lock for the front door.
More opportunities. Smaller government. Stronger and safer families
