America is a wonderland offering myriad opportunities to lead a life of your dream. We are brought up with an idea that the USA is the country of freedom, tolerance, and safety. With all its seeming prosperity, it is hard to believe that the level of crime in the United States is appallingly high. Although the amount of crimes in America has been steadily declining for many years, various sorts of delinquency are still occurring.
The bad thing is that crime figures vary state by state. While Maine experienced one of the lowest rates of violent crimes in 2017 (according to the FBI report) — just 120 incidents per 100,000 population, ever-problematic Alaska at the same time struggled from 830 felonies per 100,000 people. Why are not all the spots in America equally safe and favorable for living? Reasons do differ, from the difference in laws and punishment measures to dissimilar geographical position and availability of natural resources. Hereafter, we discuss how the crime rate varies across the country.
