Only 20% of crime is violent in nature. Violent crime involves negligent, intentional or reckless act against a person. It is often thought of as an act that causes physical harm. Violent crime, homicide in particular, is not a random event. Homicide is likely to result from the convergence of high-risk socio-demographic variables. Christiansen 2015
