The East is bloodier than the west. Could be race. Could be the fact of more space (less population density) in the west.

The first map is homicides – not all crimes.

I’m surprised that California is not darker red, and I am surprised that Nevada and Alaska are such deadly places.

And Missouri….hmmm.

Bottom line, statistics without interpretation are just numbers.

Not at all.

Edited: Missouris urban areas like STL, KC, and even Spfd have had an upswing due to drugs.

I am surprised Texas is not as dark red as Nevada or Louisiana.
