Kansas City has more homicides over Memorial Day weekend than Omaha has had all year so far.

Omaha has had 5, Kansas City has had 54

Sioux Falls, Fargo, Lincoln don't have the issues of St. Louis and Kansas City? Wonder what could be reason?

Lincoln has had 1 homicide (population 287,000), while St. Louis has had 61 homicides with similar population with 302,000 people.

Having spent time in the two there is a huge difference between the two cities that I have felt immediately.

Maybe it's time for all these liberal Democratic crime-ridden third-world cities to consider a Republican like Omaha did.

Omaha officially has 469,000 people, while KC has 492,000.

This thread is as silly as liberal threads comparing Maine and Mississippi, for mostly the same taboo reasons.

What's the taboo reason for the difference in the homicide rate?

Wonder why Nebraska and Iowa are much more effective when it comes to crime than Missouri

Lincoln and Omaha are the next state over from to KC and St. Louis.

I have been in KC, St. Louis, Lincoln and Omaha.

Omaha has historically had a few extremely high crime areas nearly as bad as the worst Chicago or Detroit but it's one or two zip codes. It is a tiny part of the city but not to long ago was likely one of the highest crime zip codes in the country.

The difference with Omaha is that has an unusually large area that has extremely low crime rates that cover a massive section of the city.

Lincoln has always had an unusually low homicide rate for a city it is size. It's all-time record is around 10 a year and some years it has gone without any.

St. Louis and Kansas City on the other hand the unrest can be felt the moment one enters the city.

Jackson just over 4 months into the year has had 44 homicides with 164,000 people.

Maine had 18 homicides in 2018 with a population of 1.3 million.

Omaha isn't good for everyone.

The top 10 states for the rate of black homicide victims were Missouri, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Alaska, Nebraska, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Kansas and West Virginia.
While Missouri is #1 for Black homicide rates, Nebraska is in the top 10 (and made #1 a few years ago). Sounds like many Black neighborhoods are frequently in bad shape regardless if it's in a Republican ran place or a Democratic-ran place.

Come on, you know the taboo reason. It's called demographics. Look at who lives in Lincoln and STL and you'll have your answer.

Kansas City and St Louis are both overrun with black gangs that commit most of the murders. I have worked in both cities.

Bingo! I don't understand why it is a taboo. It's obvious, everyone knows it but yet somehow it isn't politically correct...

Certain parts of those cities are over run with Black gangs. And most of the murder victims are Black men. Black men are getting killed in Omaha too in high numbers (per capita). My solution: I don't go to a gang-infested neighborhood if I can help it.
