14 Murders per 100K population (over the last 3 years)
We were lower than Costa Rica and Panama, and only in 3 years things got worse. It goes back to the Al Jazeera article about the correlation between socioeconomic situation and violence. More proof that people are actually worse off than they were previously, not only that, the gap between the have and have not has widened.
P.S. The number of Firearms has little to do with the increased rate, as the number of firearms have most likely remained same over the past few years if not decades.
That rate is higher than most cities in the US: (national average in 2010 = 4.8 per 100K)
