12/17/09: American Homicide
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, Utah – If the homicide rate in the United States stays at its current level, 1 in every 200 people born today will eventually be murdered. In a new book, the scholar Randolph Roth explores why it is we are one of the most homicidal nation in the world. Roth found that it isn't about economics or lax gun laws or greed. Our murder rate, he says, is directly tied to how much faith we have in our government and in each other. Roth joins Doug Thursday to talk about "American Homicide."
