they start comparing the us to the world

they end with comparing the UK to only the EU, which is much smaller. Being 4th in the EU is much different than 4th in the world.

Just lost credibility.

But I think it is safe to say we ALL agree Piers Morgan is a twat.

@Palfas: Obama's Orders are out: no eating of words by me!

Most are "window dressing" designed to LOOK useful but in fact? Do nothing.
Some few make sense, it`s true.
Others are "time bombs" they look simple enough NOW, but have the potential for vast mis-use and removal of freedoms.

Oh, but the US Gov`t would NEVER do that (`Japanese` Internment Camps) right?

(Japanese is in " because they were, in fact, full US Citizens, some 2nd or 3rd generation!)

@dang007 you are putting up numbers for different things, what's the point? Having somebody actually go through the data and provide something that is the same would be very interesting - I have no idea where it would come out but putting up data that is for different things achieves nothing but confusion.

@Holy God: Think thou do protest to much.

2009 (only year I could find data for in the 10 min. I looked.)

US violent crime (includes murder, Forcable rape, robbery, and Aggrevated assult.)
429.4 per 100,000

UK (Data below, I tried to find the def of Violence against person but assuming it DOES include the offences listed here the rate subtracting out what is NOT included in the US is

Still not sure the UK is better.

In England and Wales, there were 880,000 "Violence against the person" crimes in 2008–9, equivalent to 16 per thousand people. There were about 50,000 sexual offences during the same period, just under 1 per thousand. Other areas of crime included robbery (80,000; equivalent to around 1.5 crimes/per thousand), burglary (285,000; 5 per thousand) and vehicle theft (150,000; 3 per thousand).[8]
