"often missed from this conversation is the medical intervention that takes place today at the EMT level in the field to the shock trauma facilities that are very robust in our nation today. This data would be much higher."
Huh? So he is saying that the low murder rates in Austin and Houston are attributed to advancements in emergency medical care? How are Austin and Houston more advanced in this field than Chicago, New York City, Baltimore, DC, LA, etc.?
Or is he saying that ALL cities would have higher murder numbers if it were not for these advancements? That makes no sense. The comparative ratios would still be identical. Baltimore being 10x more murders than Austin. Whether its 10:1 or 10,000:1000. One city has FAR fewer, why?
