Something has changed, certainly.
When I was growing up (Australia, 1950s) we would (on holidays) be booted out of the house and told to go and play outside (unsupervised) most of the day. That was the norm then.
There were (of course) terrible murders from time to time, though few and far between.

I don't know if the world is really so much more dangerous or not.
I do think that we (as a people) actually make the world more dangerous by being frightened of it, as in.....if kids don't walk to school it becomes less safe for the ones that still do.
But that's not much help to you.
