What do you suppose makes one place more dangerous than another? Hawaii had a total of 24 murders in 2010 with a population of around 1,375,000. Pretty dangerous, huh? Phoenix with a population of 1,445,000, had 119 murders while Dallas had 148 murders with a population of about 1,200,000.
If you want danger, go to Birmingham. There were 273 murders with a population of 212,000. More dangerous than El Paso.
The county where I live has a resident population of about 1,100,000 but could only manage 16 murders.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
