Juarez, a Mexican town that is considered dangerous and violent has a little more then 200 murders this year(source Fox 14 El Paso & LA Times). L.A. has 297 murders (source is the L.A. Murder Map) this year...

Just food for thought....

In other words . . .

Juarez= 17/100,000 population
LA= 4/100,000 population

425% higher murder rate in Juarez.

Nice try tho ibarrio.

Stats per population are higher. But L.A. still has more murders...ask the 97 more people that have been killed in L.A. if they care about stats/per population.

My hometown of Sao Paulo has 4,000-5,000 murders annually and I've never been victimized in my 10 years there and I love living there. Dont feel so bad.

Yes, I was.

At age 19 I moved to Brazil for 2 years then came back to the US. Then I went back to do my junior year of university there, after graduating I went back to work there and today split my time btwn SP and The Bay.

Can't argue with logic like that

Of course the murder rate is going to be higher in a large city. If you live in a small city of 100 people and 75 get killed, it's still no big deal? Just because it's less than 297? It doesn't make sense if you don't average it out. That's why LA isn't even close to being the most dangerous city in the country, let alone the world.
