Dail Mail: UK Violent Crime Rate Worse Than US Or South Africa

This is interesting because it not only provides the total number of violent crimes but also breaks it down to the number of crimes per 100,000 citizens. That’s a better comparison.

The left wants to pick and choose which data they use to support their wrong-headedness. If you use the total number of crimes they will say something like, “But the US has more people. That skews the results.”

Could it be that the US has fewer violent crimes because of the number of citizens who are armed for their protection? Of course.

From the UK Daily Mail:

The U.S. has a violence rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, Canada 935, Australia 92 and South Africa 1,609.<br /><p class=" width="468" height="636" class="size-full wp-image-90585" /> The U.S. has a violence rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, Canada 935, Australia 92 and South Africa 1,609.

    UK is a dump, at least the England part of it.
    Dreary, run down. That’s what socialism does.
    Where there’s no hope, there’s crime.

    Australia 92?

  3. JWilly says:

    clicking on the article link, it is dated July/2009 – don’t know how much has changed in 3.5 years; but it would be interesting to see updated data. Didn’t see U.S. in the Top 10

  4. Uke says:

    I’m inclined to assume that things haven’t changed dramatically in the last 3 years.

    But wait, Mexico didn’t make the list? 0_o

  5. Joe says:

    americas gun homicide and overall violent crime has gone down each year, so the gap is probably widening.
