USA: Major city murder ranking for 2017

Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso and Oklahoma City all near each other around 25th.

St Louis number one. New Orleans and Detroit up there.

Las Vegas number six due to mass shooting.

Honolulu up there. Hawaii virtually gun free like the U.K.

What is the common denominator? It’s not gun control. Temperatures, Minneapolis up there? Poverty?

DING! DING! DING! DING!! We have a winner!! :hurry:

While other factors, may play a role, I believe that if you look at the policies, put in place by the top cities, on the list, you will see, a large majority, are designed to keep people in poverty, have sub-par school systems, and have regulations, that keep new businesses, from moving in. JMHO

Chicago is still the murder capital of the country with 9.6% of all murders.
Additionally Chicago has 5.5% of all rapes, 7.9% of all robberies, 6% of all aggravated assaults and 12.9% of all non-fatal shootings.
Of all the crimes committed in the survey, Chicago commits 7%.
One city, controlled by Democrats for 87 years.

Sorry ElPaso and Austin are 56 and 57.

I generalized too much about Texas.

Interesting that ElPaso is so relatively safe and right across the border is a gun free country.

Chicago isn't dangerous. Most of Chicago is quite safe. Parts of Chicago are worse than Fallujah.

Thats like saying, “that girl is gorgeous, expect she is missing half her teeth and the other half are rotted.”

Sure, if taken as a whole. But if you actually lived there, you'd never visit the places where 99% of the murders happen. I don't visit Pasadena or Sunnyside.
