Skip to comments.54% OF US COUNTIES IN 2014 HAD ZERO MURDERS, 2% OF COUNTIES HAVE 51% OF THE MURDERS

. . . The worst 1% of counties have 19% of the population and 37% of the murders. The worst 5% of counties contain 47% of the population and account for 68% of murders. As shown in figure 2, over half of murders occurred in only 2% of counties.
Murders actually used to be even more concentrated. From 1977 to 2000, on average 73 percent of counties in any give year had zero murders. Possibly, this change is a result of the opioid epidemics spread to more rural areas. But that question is beyond the scope of this study. Lotts book More Guns, Less Crime showed how dramatically counties within states vary dramatically with respect to murder and other violent crime rates. . . .
it is still interesting to note that so much of the country has both very high gun ownership rates and zero murders. . . . .
GRAPHS DEFINITELY WORTH LOOKING AT

I guessed the counties/regions! Do I win?
Which party is the majority in the bad counties?
Let me guess. Within the big cities, and Chicago is way up there.
If you look at the map it looks a lot like the map that shows the areas the witch won. Funny, l didn’t expect that. /s
California has a problem which I suspect is due to the illegal situation. Too bad they refuse to take care of that.
Like good socialists we gotta take out the 1%ers.
Out here in rural America people seldom get murdered.They just disappear without a trace.
Dem and it the deeper the red in Tennessee, which is Memphis, Knoxville, Nashville as the highest are lib controlled areas. Memphis is the largest city in Shelby CO, Black, Dem controlled from the lowest office to the highest, with exception of mayor, white dem. Chief of Police, Schools, all blacks. Highest crime is in black predominate areas with the poorest to middle class.
Even white neighborhoods that are on the high class side are not truly safe and they have alarms, gates, dogs, and better schools.
That is very true. Murder is very rare where I live, but a number of people have disappeared, never to be found.
You win if you don’t live there.
The counties with higher than average Negro population have most of the murders/crime. Only the dullards don’t know that fact.
As someone at the linked site pointed out, the murder map and this map have much in common:
I wonder if anyone is surprised that most of them are in heavily leftist cities. I know I’m not.
Without the violent statistics produced by blacks, it would be really hard to advance gun control. Trust me, the gun grabbers are happy.
Wow. What do they have in common?
