re: US: on Crime in America (Bienvenido Macario, Philippines) (John Eipper, USA, 01/26/08 6:49 am)

Bienvenido Macario comments on crime in the US:

Sometime in September 1978 I believe it was CBS's "60 Minutes" that
featured crimes in two of the world's biggest cities. One was New
York City and the other Tokyo. While Tokyo had a bigger population
density than New York City, there was less crime in Tokyo.

The Tokyo's Chief of Police was asked why he thinks Tokyo has less
crime. Through an interpreter he said, "In Japan, only Japanese. In
New York many nations."

One of the first things I noticed here in the US when I enter a
restaurant is a sign that says:

"Total occupancy XXX people." I guess for safety and fire code
compliance, public establishments must declare the capacity it could
accommodate or serve. This too may apply to crime rate vs. population
density. I wouldn't be surprised that the bigger the population grows,
the higher the crime rate.

We should keep in mind that China, like Singapore, does not offer the
same quality of liberty and freedom as we have here in the US.

JE comments: Golly! I cannot remotely remember anything I did or saw in
September 1978. Bienvenido Macario brings up the 'petri dish' theory
of crime: eventually a population's density will become unsustainable
for its environment. Many European (and Asian) cities are more densely populated than their US counterparts, however, but seem to enjoy a lower crime rate.
