    I knew that NYC had reduced their murder rate, but this is shocking:
    "So low has the number dipped - to 566 so far this year from a high of 2,245 in 1990 - that even Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly has begun to gently lower the public's expectations"

    That's not even close. It's actually ~550 (http://canadaonline.about.com/od/cri...tioncappun.htm). Your point is taken, though. The rate there is much much less than in the US.

    Thanks for the correction...I thought "Bowling for Columbine" said 12, but maybe that was just one area of Canada - or maybe it was Japan or something. Anyway, you understood my point which was all I was trying to get across.

    I hate Michael Moore! However, the murder rate in the USA compared to other countries is absurd...

    I am not a Moore fan either, but I have to agree that the amount of fear that's bred within the USA is responsible for a lot of the violence here. Other countries are exposed to just as much violence from entertainment and the media. Meanwhile, I've lived in Manhattan nearly all my life and I've never felt safer here, though my hopes of getting a T650 from Verizon are being killed right now.
