Crime stats: Finland vs United States<quoted text>I stand corrected. I had Finland on my brain. Please insert Finland where you see Denmark. Factoid #174 to you Emlu. Denmark pop. 5.6 million and Finland pop. 5.4 million and both represent .08 of the worlds population and both ranked the obvious at 111th of world pop. Well one thing I learned today if I read all those stats correctly(got over served by Mike)lol is I will never live in Denmark or visit for that matter based on crime rate and lack of safety. Does anybody want to link crime stats on Finland vs. US?
