National crime statitics compiled by the FBI show the nation's murder rate rose nearly 11 percent in 2015, driven largely by homicides in a handful of big American cities. Murder still constitutes a small fraction of violent crimes, and such crimes are down more than 16 percent over the last decade. We'll dig into the numbers on The Sound of Ideas. Then, practical advice on how to help guard against becoming a crime statistic. And, we'll meet the next Ambassador to Chile, a local from Garfield Heights. Join us, right here on 90.3.
