It would have been good if there was an comparison of other developed countries.
Yesterday a Korean was killed for 4000 peso, she had won in the Palermo casino.
I don´t know about the USA, but in Holland stuff like that just don´t happen and if they do there is public outcry for weeks.
I don´t see that happening here

Yes Sebastian, I saw that. I also saw on the La Nacion this Sunday's edition that in Argentina there is one kidnapping every 2 day. Wow, if that does not SCREAM crime rate, well, I just dunno what does. The article was buried on page 22. Just trying to keep things in proper context. Crimes in the US are sporadic and on a given kind of targeted location or community. Homes in the US still do not have the grilles and bars that you see rampant on homes and windows of people in Buenos Aires ( as too observed by a letter sender to the Editor in last Sunday's The Buenos Aires Herald as well). I wonder why that is?
the phrase - It is jungle out there - it's true.

It may be politically correct to think that crime is an American phenomenon but the reality is that there is plenty of crime, and a lot of it violent, here in BA. If you want to argue that it is worse in the US, go on thinking thaty way but if you let your guard down here in BA you or those you care about may be robbed or hurt. The problem here is that crime does not focus on the poor parts of town, as is the case in the US. Crime is rampant in places like Barrio Norte and Zona Norte, the best parts of town. I don't think I have a single friend who has not been robbed, broken into or even kidnapped. Can those of you who like to show statistics pointing to high crime in the US say the same about your family/friends in the US? Have they all had some incident? Or is it just possible that US crime takes place mostly in places like Harlem, the Bronx and similar areas around the country? I am not saying that you can't live in BA without getting hurt. Use common sense and take greater precautions than you would back in the States. If you stay long enough, though, chances are that you will eventually be victimized by some sort of crime.

It´s your lack of education that makes you insult people who speak there mind?
I wonder by the way if there is a single state in the US where in 33% of the homes was broken into in 2006? Or a city where 29% of the people were victim of a crine in 2006?
