Q. How many murders in the U.S. last year?

Writing about web page http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/06/12/D8I6MG9G1.html

A. 16,912

And 92,000 rapes. Remember those are just the ones that get reported.

And in the UK? About 853 murders per year is the best figure I can find. Bear in mind our population is about one–fifth that of the U.S.

Gee, wish we were more like them Americans!!!

Incidentally, the UK government couldn't be less transparent if it tried when it comes to reporting crime. Its figures are given as occurences per 1000 people, making it virtually impossible to work out accurate totals.

    Surely the per–capita number is actually a lot more use than an overall total?
