That's compared to a virtually unchanged national average in 2000.

But the decreases are smaller than in recent years in Virginia.
Murder is down just two-tenths of a percent from the previous year.

Katzen is completely unknown to 73 percent of those polled in our News 7/Mason-Dixon poll.
58 percent don't recognize Jerry Kilgore.
The Democratic ticket benefits a little from the fact that it had a primary, which meant TV ads.
So Tim Kaine and Donald McEachin have a little more traction in the eyes of voters.
But more importantly, where do they stand in the poll?
In the Lieutenant Governor's race, Richmond Mayor Tim Kaine has 38 percent support.
Warrenton Delegate Jay Katzen has 27 percent.
But a full 35 percent of voters are undecided in the middle of June.
In the race for Attorney General, former public safety secretary Jerry Kilgore has 34 percent support.
Henrico County Delegate Donald McEachin is at 30 percent.
But 36 percent of those polled are undecided.
