Sorry, that was my bad. I thought it referred to gun-related crime, but it doesn't, so your quote was accurate, but it doesn't reflect on the subject at hand. There is more property crime (theft) in the UK than here, but far more violent crime in the US.<quoted text>
"The United Kingdom has a total recorded crime rate per capita of approximately 85 per 1000 people; the United States of America records approximately 80."
"In 2008 The Independent reported that there were 42 gun-related deaths in Great Britain"
42, out of a population of 60,776,238 (in 2008). How does that compare to the US, per capita? Yeah, exactly.
