It is not due to their race other than socio economic discrimination.


Poverty often makes one desperate enough to commit crimes, sadly.


We may have a biracial prrsident, but the division between the rich and poor is growing and blacks are often the first racial group to have it harder.

Automobile theft is very high in Arizona and in the central agricultural valley of California, home to many Hispanic farmworkers, also in agricultural Yakima, Washington.

I've heard that New Mexico has high crime? But I also heard recently that the border city of El Paso, TX has very low violent crime?

Domestic assault, rape and incest, connected with alcoholism, are extremely high on Indian reservations in the West -- and highest of all in Alaska.

Overall crime is very low in the mountainous areas of eastern states - despite their economic depression. Old "rust belt" industrial cities in the mountains such as Scranton, Altoona, Johnstown in Pennsylvania with nearly all-white populations. The north woods of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and upstate New York (but then, those are largely rural areas).

In New England atleast and I think a lot of the Midwest cities the city limits are not that big. Cities like New Haven, Hartford or Providence are like 20 sq miles, they don't have the "suburban parts" like a lot of cities in the South or West. If Hartford could annex West Hartford the crime rate would drop a lot.
