According to the FBI, there were 1.2 million violent crimes committed in the US last year.
According to the UK government, there were 1.94 million violent crimes in the UK last year.
There are almost exactly five times as many people in the US as in the UK – 314 million vs. 63 million.
The violent crime rate in the UK is 3,100 per 100,000, and in the US it is 380 per 100,000 population.
Why didn’t Piers Morgan mention this inconvenient fact? Americans are much safer than Brits. In the UK, criminals know that their victims are unarmed and defenseless – just as Adam Lanza did.
