In America increased urbanization and the increase in the number of poor and uneducated may be some of the best possible predictors for violence. However, this view does not take into consideration the genesis of these increased levels of violence. During the period surrounding the American Revolution, crime-prone areas were identified and systematic responses established to address them. This was also the period of the first identified serial killings. It was a period of great transition and self-identification of the U.S. criminal justice system.
Immigrants migrated to American cities of the North, creating issues of space and a struggle for resources. This battle for the basic necessities of life and progress is one factor that can lead to an increased level of violence.
