A nice place to visit, but apparently NOBODY wants to live there!

An old friend of mine had his throat slashed by a mugger in NO back in the 90's. He lived but has one hell of a scar. It was a miracle he survived.

NO, America's oldest large city & port city, some very beautiful architecture and culture but the crime. Fugetaboutit.

Your point being what?  That other than Alaska, it appears that violent criminal homicides appear to be centered around the African-American demographic.  I get the deal with Louisiana and Alabama. But look an Maryland, that higher rate is all about Baltimore.

Interestingly, Illinois and California you would think higher, but owing to massively large state populations, the higher localized crime stats (Compton, Oakland, South Chicago) are mitigated by a larger mostly non violent population across the rest of those two states.

I get why Idaho and Maine are so low. Lower population, and specifically a certain majority demographic they both share, even as both are on opposite ends of the political spectrum.

I will need to take a look at New Mexico, and see what in underlying there, and why their violent crime is above the national average. There is a lot drug offenders in ABQ, some really, really low rent areas. So, those must be inflating the averages for the whole state. A state of only 2 million people.

NM is high due to Roswell & ABQ. Roswell is the destination hub for most drugs coming out of Nuevo Laredo & El Paso for distribution to the rest of the country by way of ABQ.

Honestly, most people are not aware but Roswell is a seriously scary place and it ain't the aliens doing the disappearing of people, its the cartels.

Thanks for the info.  There are a lot of low rent places in people all over this country.

Nothing good ever comes from drug use or gangs.  People complain about crime and cartels, and then support them by buying dope. And pot is in that group too.  For people to believe the drug cartels are the major pot suppliers, people who murder, rape, and wreak havoc all over Mexico. Maybe some folk ought to think about that the next time they light up a doobie.

Many people will whine about clothing companies with slave labor, only to support the drug cartels by their "recreation substance" of choice.

Couldn't agree more. All the more reason to fully legalise dope. I smoke, my 18 year old son knows I do (I don't flaunt it, but I don't lie) and is completely uninterested - which is great.

Could not agree more.

Exactly, look what happened with Prohibition from 1920-1933 and the crime it created. Legalize it at the federal level and all of those problems will disappear.

What do you think Red, ABQ or Oakland, which city is more sketchy?

With updated crime rates, it looks like Al-Bu-Kerky beats Oak Town. As usual, Detroit is the champ.
