    From the link;
    click on definition

    So, where is China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea (just to name a few)?

    Perhaps our law enforcement is also number one ergo number of prisoners.

    Also the source for those numbers are from 1998 to 2000. Why would Bush report on those numbers for The State of the Union?

    Other than his cherry picked crime stats I have no problem with the other ranks. It is proof of how strong of a nation we are. Obviously David is anti-USA acknowledged by his placement of the thread.

    Perhaps he doesn't agree with the premiss of your thread.
