Alabama Crimes between family members

The lack of adequate problem resolution skills among friends and family quite often lead to violent crimes. Random acts of violence also contribute to the number of violent crime cases, but these are still rare. Lack of education, as well as employment opportunities and systematic disenfranchisement of communities, also lead to an increase in violent crime. A low violent crime rate can be attributed to respect for law enforcement, community trust, and a stellar Court system.
