Comment: Yemen

(See in situ)


Yemen

... has a lower murder rate per 100,000 (4.2) than the US (4.8). They must be doing something right over there.

FWIW, the murder rate per 100,000 in the UK is 1.2. Then again, there are cameras everywhere there so how are you going to get away with it? :P

How much of the "high" murder rate in the US is due to gang wars and black market violence perpetuated by the War on Drugs? That's what I'd like to know.
