I always question how murder rates are compiled.

I know that Detroit counts all killings as murder even if they’re justified homicide. (Defensive killing) Detroit leads the nation in Justified Homicide. Detroit also tends to count surrounding suburbs as Detroit.

“murder rate” is a misnomer. it’s “homocide rate.” and there’s no such thing as “justified homocide” in nyc.
