Crime scene do not cross.

Even though 2017 is already the worst year for mass shootings in modern U.S. history, Americans are more worried about cybercrime than violent crime.

That’s according to a new Gallup poll which found that 67 percent of U.S. adults frequently or occasionally fret about having personal, credit card or financial information stolen by hackers. 66 percent also worry about the threat presented by identity theft.

In comparison with cybercrime, Statista’s Niall McCarthy notes that anxiety about conventional crime forms is less prevalent with a large gap to the third-biggest worry – having a car stolen or broken into. That’s a frequent concern for 38 percent of people while 36 percent tend to worry about burglary when they are away from home.

More serious crimes such as muggings, murders and sexual assault are much further down the list, but why?

The reason cybercrime comes first is more than likely due to far higher levels of victimization, along with substantial coverage in the media. Gallup also found that a quarter of households have experienced hackers stealing their personal information while a mere three percent have experienced a burglary.

  • And they say mind control doesn’t work – HA

  • The easiest way to avoid having your identity stolen is to pay cash for everything instead of using an easily skimmed credit card.

  • Violent crime dropped 50% in the past 20 years, I call that a reason.
    Out of all crimes in USA, terrorism does not even reach 1%, this is not Israel.
    Out of all Arabs in the world, less than 1% are terrorists (created, sponsored, supplied & armed by USA, EU, Russia & China mostly).
    I think those numbers on the list are pretty true to reality of what may happen.
