It is amazing how some cities have some of the highest homicide rates in the world but that many, many cities all over the country have crime rates that are similar to Japan, Germany and South Korea.

The new crime report was released and what a difference from one area to another on homicide rates.

Lincoln, Nebraska for example in 2015 had just 1 homicide for a population of 276,000 people

St. Louis on the other hand had 188 homicides for a population of 317,000 people

Boulder County, Colorado with a larger population then St. Louis had 3 homicides

Baltimore, Maryland had 344 homicides with a population of 620,000

New Hampshire had 14 homicides with a population of 1.3 million or more then double the number of residents of Baltimore

Provo/Orem metro in Utah had 2 homicides with a population of 584,000 people, While Milwaukee had 145 homicides with a similar population of 600,000 people.

I wouldn't compare the Provo/Orem metro to the city of Milwaukee. Both are just totally different.

There are a multitude of factors behind all of this.

First of Japan in most cities is still safer than this. South Korea comes closer to those numbers and Germany is around those numbers I have yet to see a U.S city with as low as Japan to crime rate as most Japanese cities, but unlike Japan U.S has very little cities where the average age is nearly hitting 50. Also you can't count counties and compare th m to cities. Just because their population is close. Unlike Boulder County, Saint Louis probably has more than 1.5 times its population during the Day and if you aren't comparing similar areas it isn't the same at all. You can't count a semi-suburban metro area like Provo-Orem or Boulder to a city. Almost all cities are more dangerous than these areas. That is part of what makes it a city.

LOL - take a wild guess.

I guess population density doesn't mean anything to you? These are all apples to oranges comparisons.

What do they all have in common? Like my other post on a forum about the states of America and their murder rates. Anyways, I'll spell it out for you. It appears to be a R-A-C-E thing.....

This is were your completely wrong this dude chose areas that were majority rural, two of which had long distance commuters to another metro you could talk race all you want but even in London the most dangerous black neighborhoods. If you compare Lewisham a violent area of London that is 27% Black to another area that is around 25% Black Houston, Texas you end up with a murder rate of around 2/100,000 in Lewisham to a murder rate around 10/100,000 in Houston a historic low in 2013. Lewisham is actually an astonishingly poor area while most of Houston is not. Lewisham was even voted the most dangerous area in the U.K and the city of Glasgow which is less than .30% black went from having a murder rate of 6.5 (slightly lower than Lewishams rate back then to 3.1 or so in 2014 or so still higher than Lewisham's rate. Now I am comparing a city neighborhood to a city. It might not be apples to apples comparison, but even then London at 10% black has a murder rate of .89 per 100,000 people, the black homicide rate is definitely higher but even when I calculate for blacks only in London I get roughly 80 murders for a population of 1.4 million. Or a murder rate of just above 5 murders per 100,000. Chances are the black homicide rate in London is much lower than that. Another example is Western Cape which is around 32% black, 49% Cape Coloured and 16% White in SA has a murder rate of 52 per 100,000 people. Limpopo which is around 97% Black and 2% White has a murder rate of 13 per 100,000 in 2013. These disparities are huge one province has a black homicide rate around 13% while the other depending on if you count Cape Coloureds as black has anywhere from 100+ to 70+ homicide rate. Just saying look black people is an ignorant way of arguing. Black people isn't some monolithic group. Even in the UK statistics the murder rate among African Blacks is lower than among Carribean Blacks but they don't give exact calculations or calculate the numbers separately.
