...lot's of crimes go unreported or recorded as 'no crime' so the figures for sure are certainly massaged a bit. Either way though, 5% is really low
The town I used to live in had a rate of 11.39% with an extremely corrupt police force. They also have the distinction of being the oldest town in
America to never solve a murder case (founded in 1788). The only murders they've ever solved involved a confession rather than detective work. But,
despite the poor police work, that town had very little crime and is infact considered one of the nicest small towns in America (I lived there for 7
years and never even locked my door).
In the place I live now, you quite simply do not go out after dark unless you're armed and ready to use your weapon. I've even seen car jackings in
broad daylight even.
