Seems to me, wherever it's drawn, it's going to be somewhat fuzzy.

thats cause speeding generates money, knife crimes do not, they are just a pain in the ass to for the police to try and solve.

It's kind of the same story in US but it's more PC to blame guns. Oh well.


The UK kicks our ass overall when it comes to most violent crime, it's not really that shocking.

Murders (per capita) statistics - countries compared - NationMaster

and per capita, the U Ks murder rate is 1/3 of the U S.
the assault rates are pretty close

I guess guns make a difference
