Good old charm city. "Welcome to Balt'more Hun" (stab)

They shouldn't include Baltimore in the MD stats. It's not a city so much as a penal colony.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Texas isn't on the list? Dayamn...every day I hear about more murders in the metroplex. I hate to think what it's like in the states listed.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Additionally I would've expected New York, Chicago, California, and possibly other coastal states like Washington, Michigan and Virginia. Michigan counts as coastal, right?
Washington is super chill, you should move here Tongue.

I'm pretty sure Seattle was rated the most intelligent City in the US. (Note, this doesn't mean the city with the most intelligent people). http://www.komonews.com/news/around-the-...70341.html

Actually, the city in which I work, go to school, shop, etc. is highly regarded for being an intelligent city as well. About 40% of it's residents have a Bachelors Degree or higher; 15% higher than the rest of the state. But what this FBI release revealed is that high education does not mean low violent crime rates.

I think US citizens should have more guns. That should solve the problem of violence.
Amrite?

Aggravated assault account for most violent crimes. That almost certainly means guns were not involved. Once guns are being shot it jumps to murder or attempted murder.

Pulling a gun can result in an AA charge, at least in MD.

Florida is neither blue, nor red. They are arguably now a little more democrat aligned, but it's a toss up at best.

Nevada, New Mexico, Delaware, and Maryland are all blue states.

4.5 Democrat leaning states, and 5.5 Republican leaning states.

Notice how people's biases forgo facts and make prejudiced decisions based on desires?

Yeah, I know, I was just...

What exactly is an "aggravated assault" ? Not every punch counts as "aggravated" , right?

I just looked this up
Guns per capita
Why am I not surprised with the second place on the list Sadcryface2

I am surprised by Switzerland on fourth tho.

I know it doesn't necessarily has to do with crime rates ( kind of obvious with Finland in 5th ) , just an interesting statistic.
