Quoted: The FBI also reports that the arrest rate for violent crime was just 172 per 100,000, and for property crimes, it was 531. That means that in 2011, one in 33 Americans were arrested for crimes that didn't involve violence against another person, or theft of or damage to property. More people were arrested for drug crimes than any other class of crimes -- about one in every 207 of us. One in every 258 of us was arrested for drunk driving. The FBI doesn't keep track, but presumably the remaining arrests were for crimes like prostitution, vandalism, public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and other consensual crimes and relatively minor offenses.
This is why we as CCW permit holder are a rare bunch, about only 10% of the USA can get a license because of the above reasons along with others. What scares me about these stats is that the system needs to feed itself to stay alive. People get arrested to generate money for the state like disorderly conduct is a "dollars for collars" charge...money maker for the city
Here is a scary though: in Dallas County at any given time there is 25% of the population on probation, parole or in jail
