What do you mean by ''Violent Crimes''?
A voilent crime is not nescarsarily stealing from a shop, but it would be if somebody held the shop owner hostage with a gun or knife and told them to give them their money. Here is some information I found from Wikipedia, I pasted it here for you to have a read of: A violent crime or crime of violence is a crime in which an offender or perpetrator uses or threatens to use force upon a victim. This entails both crimes in which the violent act is the objective, such as murder, as well as crimes in which violence is the means to an end.
