A Mexican NGO called the Consejo Ciudadano para la Seguridad Pública y Justicia Penal, A.C. (Citizen Council for Public Security and Penal Justice)  released a list of the world’s 50 cities with the highest homicide rates in 2015.

In order to be on the list, the city must have at least 300,000 inhabitants.  The ranking is based on homicide rates calculated per 100,000 inhabitants.  (Cities in war zones are not included in the ranking.)

Of the 50 most murderous cities, 41 are in Latin America, with five being in Mexico.

Brazil is the country with the most cities on the list, with 21.

As for the U.S.A., it had four cities on the list.

The Mainstream Media goes on and on about the “Hispanic Vote” (or the “Latino Vote” if you prefer).

Does that mean that Hispanics have different interests than other Americans?  That’s an important question.
