The October 21, 2010 Jamie Kelso show includes a discussion of Japanese racial achievement as of 1980, found in the August 1980 issue of Intauration magazine. 30 years ago the Japanese murder crime rate was the lowest in the world. 30 years later it’s still the lowest (along with Iceland). Japan has less than 1/2 murder per 100,000 population today. That compares with the worst nations today: El Salvador (71 per 100,000), Honduras (67), Jamaica (58), Guatamala (52), Venezuela (49), Trinidad and Tobago (43), Colombia (35), and South Afica (34). Still want to take that vacation to Central America? Russia and Mexico each have 15 murders per 100,000 today. The United States has 5. Canada has 2. Britain and Australia have just over 1. Among the safest nations in the world, at 1 or below are Switzerland, Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Austria, and Norway in improving order. Reference:
