I firmly believe that if the punishment for crime in the U.S. were stiffer, there would be a huge decline in crime rates. Let's say your from a lower-class povershed background. It would make more sense for you to rob, shoot, kill someone in the U.S. society and go to prison for 35 years where you may or may not get the death penalty, and eat three meals a day, than it would to continue to starve and fight for your next meal.
Never spent any time in prison have you? I can give you the benefit of the doubt here if you can find examples of people comitting murder just for 3 meals a day and a room.

Show me one place that says a mall security job is more dangerous than a LEOs job. The most recent numbers have LEOs at number 9. Security guards aren't in the top 15.
Security statistically more dangerous than police
This is interesting, since for the year 2008, the job title Security Officer has risen into the Top 10 Most Dangerous Jobs in America with a aggregate fatality and injury list larger than some other previous occupations, per 100,000 workers. Security officers are taking the place of police officers and in doing so more frequently are exposing themselves more often to danger and physical harm. Note than many security guards carry no firearms on patrol and still may be shot. Insurance costs for such jobs must be rising as well.
