Fortunately, 2010’s 33.0% was down from 2000’s 36.7% at the end of the Crack Era.

I wonder what has happened since? In the mid-2010s, The Establishment decided to be nicer to black criminals, which would drive down the felony percentage. Unfortunately, black criminals, judging by the ~40% rise in murders in the years since Ferguson, started acting up more, which would drive up the felony percentage.
