Crime in the US

Crime in the US is down and dropping. We don’t know why it spiked in the 1970s and 1980s and we don’t know why it is trending down. There are lots of theories but no proof. One theory that I like which is also unproven is the lead in the environment. Once lead was removed from gasoline, crime declined.
