A piece @ Most Dangerous Cities In The World - Business Insider that will make you think about such things. I was truly sad at how many were in Mexico with so few here in the USA. They followed that up with the Most Dangerous Cities in America @ Most Dangerous Cities In America - Business Insider and there's no way I can believe that Chicago isn't on the list!

Anyway these can be explained by ****ed up legacies, poverty and inequality that **** causes crime, as well as the dirty drug trade.

Why does that make you sad? Do you wish more were in the United States?

True that.

Probably because Latin America is the continent with the most "benevolent" criminal law on average, where criminals have too many "rights" (while victims have no rights at all).

It's time for Latin America to change this culture of being soft-handed with criminals.

I read somewhere that Cabot Cove has the highest homicide rate in the US.

I'd steer clear of that place.

Didn't realize San Juan, Puerto Rico was that bad. Not surprised Juarez is #2.

It might have been declared the murder capital by the media but people forget that Chicago is a huge city. On a per capita basis it easily falls from the top 20 in terms of homicide in cities over 40,000 people. And with the lower rate this year, it will probably drop even further.
