Saying you're below a bunch of third world shitholes isn't saying much, and just shows that statistics can be manipulated to back up any point. The US per capita murder is 5 times greater than rich Western equivalents.
@Levin Manipulating statistics? And that's not what you just did? Except what I said is more accurate.First I did not say the US was below a bunch of third world shit holes. I said the WORLD average, which includes a substantial porion of first world countries.You want to compare the US to the countries with the lowest murder rates. That's like comparing an Olympic athlete who came in 10th place to other Olympians, then implying they are a bad athlete.People have some very strange ideas about the US. I try to dispel those ideas and put things in perspective. The vast majority of Americans don't worry about being murdered. There is no need to, because the odds of being murdered are so astronomically slim that it's not worth thinking about.People travel to countries with higher murder rates than the US all the time without being paranoid about being murdered. The difference is that those countries don't have a media blowing it all out of proportion. There is NO reason to worry about being murdered when visiting the US. That's pure paranoia or ignorance.
