    This is an interesting post. I find it cool to see the differences around the world. The visual used is perfect to display the murder activity and how many murders take place in different places in our world. It was interesting to see places with a high percentage of murders in places i would of never of through of. This also goes the other way to see places i thought would be high on murders but are truly low.
