I don't think this is "city vs. city," since it really isn't a competition.

Missouri and Maryland are quite bad. I'm guessing St. Louis and Baltimore have something to do with it.

Not necessarily. They have a very low population. So they can jump colors really quick with just a couple of shootings.

Actually, Alaska has historically had one of the highest murder rates in the nation. This distinction did not stop until around the 1990s. Alaska's population is higher now than it has ever been. And consider this. Delaware, Wyoming, North Dakota, and Vermont have lower populations than Alaska, and have lower murder rates than Alaska.

??? By that logic places with high populations should always show low numbers and they don't. The numbers, just like in Canada's Yukon, NWT and Nunavut are high in the aboriginal populations due to alcoholism and other societal factors.

Texas seems to be surrounded by states that make it look better.
