This would explain why Alaska's murder rate is so high: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...bi-data-police

Anchorage saw a 117% increase in murders.

And it is sort of ironic to me. Cleveland has the distinction of having alot of Rust Belt issues. Cincinnati is home to Kroger, Macy's GE Aviation, and Proctor & Gamble(look up Crest, Tide, Gain, Ivory,). Somehow, Cleveland, which has a similar percentage of Blacks as Atlanta, has a murder rate lower than Atlanta.
Correction, Cleveland saw a rapid increase in murders in 2015. Cleveland now has the highest murder rate in Ohio, as of 2015.

It has been that way since the antebellum days.
