ibarrio, if you considered moving to a town of 100 that has 99 murders a year vs a town of 1,000,000 that has 99 murders a year. what do you think your chances of survival be in the smaller town?

When comparing Juarez's population of 1.4 Million and it's crime numbers versus L.A's population of 10.3 million and crime numbers,your chances of becoming a victim of a violent crime in Juarez is much higher than in L.A.

L.A is a rather safe city for it's size....I can't say the same for Juarez.

Kinda even like areas within Los Angeles where the crime rates stand in stark contrast with one another from block to block; it is all about the poverty level, gangs, availability of drugs, access to proper education etc.
