I'm pretty sure he's citing this list from NBC Chicago from 2012.

Opinion: The Deadliest Global City | NBC Chicago

Singapore 0.4
Tokyo 0.5
Hong Kong 0.6
Berlin 1.0
Sydney 1.0
London 1.4
Toronto 1.7
Amsterdam 1.8
Paris 4.4
New York 6.0
Los Angeles 7.5
Mexico City 8.0
Moscow 9.6
Sao Paulo 15.6
Chicago 19.4

We'll soon see whether or not 2013 was an outlier low for homicide in New York.

Yes this is article. It gives the data for 2011 as it was published in 2012.
In 2011, the homicide rate in the City of Paris was 1.88.
Note that like most other city, the City of Paris has a higher homicide rate than the suburbs (Except for the not irions Seine-Saint-Denis (93) with a homicide rate of 2).

I wonder why they listed it as 4.4 then.

In my opinion, this is because it includes attempts.
In many European countries, the published data includes attempts.

Why do attempts count? They count failure out there!

"Attempted murder?" Now really, what is that? Do they give a Nobel Prize for "attempted chemistry"?

Why not? The DF is relatively safe. Much safer than when I was a kid.

Default New York City vs Tokyo vs Hong Kong vs Paris vs London. Which one is the most amazing and impressive?

Which one do you think is the most impressive city in the world? And Why?

Never been to Tokyo, but out of the other cities I was amazed and impressed the most by Hong Kong. All the other cities were great too, but Hong Kong is just my thing.
