Violent crime on all measures is an order of magnitude lower in the UK, and other Western countries compared to the USA. For example, the US homicide rate is 4.8 (per 100,000) compared to the UK which 1.2 (per 100.000). The US rate is 400% higher. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate So, why is violent crime so much higher in the US?
Can someone explain why the (white) murder rate is so much higher in the USA than other Western countries? Why don't people murder each other to the same degree overseas?
