    Crime rates between Russia and the US

    Post  andrewlya on Sun Oct 04, 2015 4:46 pm

    Hi guys, ive heard that overall crime rate is higher in the US than Russia.

    What about homicide rate, is it higher in the US than Russia with all these mass shootings by psychos at schools and Colleges + rival street gangs?
    What do national statistics between the countries tell us?

    Well, according to this, the US has 4.7 murders per year per 100,000 people, while Russia has 9.2:

    I wouldn't use wikipedia for anything.

    Your question also suggests domestic sources for their crime rates and wikipedia certainly is not one of them.
