about seven percent . . . involved some form of violent victimization . . .

Victims said they knew the offender in 65 percent of violent household burglaries, and in 28 percent of such burglaries victims said the offender was a stranger. Residents in all of these households were equally likely to be victimized by a current or former intimate partner as they were by a stranger.

Offenders were unarmed in 61 percent of the violent household burglaries that occurred between 2003 and 2007. In 12 percent of violent household burglaries the offender possessed a firearm. About 23 percent of these firearm-related burglaries were committed by a stranger.

Good article. I'm guessing the higher income homes get hit less because they may have security systems. I wish they had included that in the report, and it would have been nice to know what percentage of homeowners have firearms in the home.

From my view, this only affirms that letting burglars escape incarceration for their crime just to save a few bucks is a descent into idiocy.
