OK, cool. I thought I'd found that somewhere. It might also depend on what they call a crime and if it's a weighted index or not. And perhaps I'm remembering it wrong, maybe it was just property crime. But I can't find the source that I used so let's go with yours. And that makes my original point even more strongly.

Most of the records are very out of date, some are 17 years old, but with crime levels falling throughout Europe and maybe in the US? Don't know about the US, I think the fear of crime in Spain is far worse than the reality. It's going to be difficult comparing stats because in some countries people don't bother to even report burglaries as they know feck all will be done and minor offences won't be counted. I really don't think there is more burglary per 1,000 in Spain than in the US. If anyone can find some more up to date stats t would be interesting.

According to that site crime rates per person in the US are 85-92% higher than Spain. Maybe you can provide some links for your claim.

Florida "stand your ground" mentality in play with this post.
