@Kaysa - this question is very specific. The only way you could answer this question is that you have to gather datas, records in police stations/ gov't agencies..etc. It Can not be an opinion at all.

@kaysha - I read link you posted in your answer. I did not find any figures/numbers, just all definitions and explanations ( Blah blah). How could you answer it true when you have no statistical data at all?

.Please provide support to your answer.

edwardsss, it is essential to back up your answer with a source. We are researchers and this is our job as an expert. We are not to guess, to rely on stock knowledge, to rely on our own opinion to be able to answer a question. Most of our users are students. Imagine how the user will present your response "FALSE :
Can not say that.. unless you have records/ statistics of crimes. think about this, if alcohol is considered major cause of this crimes, then why does the government didn't banned manufactures of this beverage." to his/her teacher. Isn't that inappropriate?

@andrewpallarca:

This what I'm asking with kaysha. Figures/numbers that support her answer.
11. Booze And Crime
USA TODAY, May 4, 1994

Let's talk about crime. Let's talk about alcohol. Now, let's talk about them together.

They belong together, so it's high time we stop separating the issues, says editor and co-owner Michael Gartner of the Ames, Iowa DAILY TRIBUNE in a May 4 commentary.

Everyone talks about guns when they talk about crime but they overlook booze, though it's right under their nose. Right in the cabinet actually, next to the dinner crackers and napkins. It's an everyday household item.

Gartner says that's why we overlook it when we talk about bad things like crime. But he says it's time to face facts:

Alcohol is a leading factor in 68 percent of manslaughters, 62 percent of assaults, 54 percent of murders and attempted murders, 48 percent of robberies and 44 percent of burglaries.

Two-thirds of child abuse cases are alcohol-related as are 72 percent of rape cases. Booze is a factor in all drinking driving arrests and leads to all the injuries and deaths associated with them. Gartner's facts are from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence.

Gartner is calling for a return of Prohibition. Even though it didn't work in the `20s and even though people say it would cause massive bootlegging, Gartner says Prohibition is necessary, because something must be done about crime.

SOURCE: "Bring back Prohibition," Michael Gartner, USA TODAY, May 4, 1994, P.11A

...If I did not question answer of kaysha, then user could not came up with this kind of answer. You provide a very good answer.
