    Well, this is only about officially reported crime; the actual figures are undoubtedly higher where even the cops stay out of certain areas, like happens in Chicago.

    Well it seems as though a large number of shootings make headlines, so I assume they are reported.

    The crime rates reported are based on
    "the number of violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Violent crimes include murder, rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. Data used for this research are 1) the number of violent crimes reported to have occurred in each city, and 2) the population of each city."

    Oh, I get it! Having more crime isn't bad if ya have enough folks to wash it down. I don't get how doing things like this helps. Maybe it's above my pay grade.

    I question the authenticity of this report.
    Chicago, Detroit, and Baltimore not high on the list?
