I think that's because they're not accelerated to a certain speed to keep themselves in orbit. And they're usually slow moving unlike communication satellites

Communication/TV/GPS satellites are in geostationary orbit: 36,000 km, which is rather high.
The research/military satellites are the one's we have to worry about,(In our lifetime) the ones with nuclear payloads.

Edit: The ISS will come down too rather soon without regular refuelling. (/Loves the Russian/ESA space program)

It would suck if that satellite killed someone due to some uncalculated variable.

You would think that they could make a calculated crash by giving it a nudge using onboard positioning equipment. Ex: A puff of CO2 or whatever propellant they use to get it into its desired orbit could be used again to get it into a desired decaying orbit that would at least put these into a predictable drop zone. This just seems like they're being lazy/cheap.

Maybe cloaked alien spacecrafts are here to observe us and hitting every debris by accident thus leading it to drop by orbit? Who knows?

The problem with this in most cases is that the satellite is dead so therefore is not an option. If the satellite was working I'm sure that could.

While slightly smaller than UARS, the German satellite is expected to have more pieces survive re-entry.
I guess sometimes German engineering isn't good.
