Say a door was kicked in, or patio slider door was smashed... Perhaps something's missing therein the residence.

Burglary? Or say vandalism with a theft?

Beat up dude on ground, pockets gone through... Robbery or assault with a theft or lost property?

Sure, they are fudged. But they are fudged every year, so the relative trends tell you something.

Based on the assumption fudging is constant or near constant.

On a state by state basis yes. For each police chief who fudges them up to get more money, there is another one who fudges them down because he owes something to the mayor. The only exception is DC as there is no other jurisdiction to create the proper 'balance of lies'.

There is a trend to be observed vis a vis which states possess high homicide rates and which ones do not, but even the decently heterodox Mises Institute won't touch it with a 10-foot pole. This should be important to ANY 2A advocate because our country's unacceptably high homicide rate is one of the most potent arrows in the gun grabbers quivers when they look for politically palatable excuses to strip away even more of our gun rights.

Don't forget the overwhelming desire to keep all of those real estate developer bucks flowing in and not scare away any of the highly educated 20-something white women buying all of those flashy condos in NoMa, etc.

I’m sure there would be more results if i didn’t use the word fudge HOWEVER these are the stats your getting in the UCR. I have a bunch of personal inner working knowledge of this too but it’s the internet so my word is poop and it doesn’t behoove me to discuss specifics as i only have one place to compare.
So you're saying we can't use OFFICIAL USG statistics to refute the made up BS numbers by the likes of Everytown and the Brady bunch?

ETA: I'm sure the venerable and much referenced NIH study also is based on "fudge" numbers, but it also contains official taxpayer funded "objective" statistics rather than numbers pulled from "nether regions."
