London crime takes some beating

Hi Grit

Although I cannot match your statistics like for like on crime, what I can do is provide you is provide you with a comparison against London , a town with around 8 million inhabitants. As you can see from the statistics the murder level, at 11 is only one third of Holywood, although rapes and other crimes may be higher. Overall though, when one bears in mind the much larger numbers of people in our capital and their social diversity, I think it does pretty well in comparison with tinsel town.

    Hi Brit,

    LA only has a population of around 4,000,000. Of course, there is a large population of illegals that aren’t counted in that statistic. One must also keep in mind that the street gangs in that area are often better armed than the police and are notorious for being very violent. Street gangs, by the way, have evolved over here into organized crime like groups that are heavily involved with the drug trade.
