One interesting thing I found was that Anchorage and Honolulu are relatively safe compared to cities in the Lower 48 with similar population figures. What I mean by safe is that murders, robberies, burglaries, etc. are much lower in Anchorage and Honolulu compared to similar cities in the Lower 48. The two cities are also safer compared to many cities with significantly lower populations in the Lower 48 (Little Rock, Arkansas & Hartford, Connecticut for example). Anybody have any reasons why Anchorage and Honolulu seem to be safer than many Lower 48 cities? Just good luck maybe?

I think one is culture, a lot of people choose to be in those places not brought up into, and I think a lot of people go to these places for new starts, so they don't want to mess up. Lastly hartford does have ghetto's I don't know about little rock, I would assume they have some, and from what I have heard and seen, you don't have true ghettos in these two places.

I agree with dgreco,in Hawaii people is so happy and stuff..can't say the same about PR though...too much crime here,its the 2nd state/territory of the US with the most ghettos(after NY)

And I bet about half the people in NY ghettos are puertoricans...

I got some stats of Puerto Rico:

2006:

Population- 3,954,000(estimated)

Murders-739(32 less than in 2005)

Police zones:

San Juan-174 murders(same as in 2005)

Bayamon-154 murders(5 less than in 2005)

Ponce-109 murders(32 less than in 2005)

Carolina-102 murders(4 less than in 2005)

(Can't find the Mayaguez and Humacao areas)

61% of murders were related to drug trafficking,14% fights or discussions,8% vengence,almost 4% domestic violence,6.5% hasn't been clasiffied yet.

88% of murders were with firearms,6%armas blancas(got no idea how to say it in english,armas blancas are knives...)2% with an object,1% estrangulation and 3$ with other methods.

675 of the murders were males older than 18,and 18 were younger than 18. 43 females were older than 18,and 3 were younger than 18.
