Big deal. And how many million people populate that county. Not that that justifies anything. But we're not talking Mayberry RFD here either.

It is a big deal if facts are important. I assumed the poster meant the City of Los Angeles.

As others have stated, the 3,683 murders over the last five years is for LA COUNTY. That is about 737 murders PER YEAR countywide since 2007.

Compare that to 20 years ago when LA County routinely averaged more than 2,000 murders PER YEAR. Between 1990 and 1994, there were 10,020 murdres in LA County (or 2,004 per year).

It's an improvement but... it's still pretty terrible. In Europe those numbers would be absolutely unacceptable

In Europe, citizens aren't nearly as obsessed with guns and stricken with paranoia as we are.
