You'll probably be interested in this link. B-More not even bronze medal (caveat: I didn't look at the data source and time period).

-S.C.

Okay, S.C., we are fourth over five years, largely on the strength of the last two. There is one thing that is wrong with this information and it is not—as far as I can tell—the information, but the context. I am attaching a link to the article I did sometime back on this. Our herd-like FBI stats do not account for predation on a predatory model but on a bovine one. Look at the table below and you will see that Chicago appears to be among the safest cities in the U.S.! However, if we did a spatial analysis, one would probably find that Chicago is in the top five. We do not perceive violence and threat in terms of a calculation of population density and our unadjusted statistical chances of being randomly killed by largely non-random actors, but in spatial terms. Just like the fighter perceives himself as a target in the combat space, the aware human perceives themselves as an occupant of a living space.

"How dangerous is this space I occupy," asks the human of himself.

I am certain that more bullets fly per square mile in Chicago than in Detroit.
