This is interesting
Found while engaged in a handgun argument elsewhere with Tron Guy, Jay Maynard. Kids don't appear to kill kids here at the same rate that they do in the US. And the US has more reported rapes than the US (the accuracy of this stat depends on whether all rapes are reported).
This one is fun, too -- http://www.nationmaster.com/compare/Costa-Rica/Nicaragua/Crime
Costa Rica wins on most counts but not on reported robberies or unpaid diplomatic parking fines. The stats are relatively old and the murder rates seem to be converging since.
